The best, new April 2013 release has arrived. Jurassic Heart is the game everyone has to play. Don’t think about it. Don’t debate it. Just head over to the creators Hima and Piti’s Jurassic Heart website and either play the game in your browser or download it for later, because you have to play this kooky otome (girl’s dating sim) visual novel. I have to say, if The Pulse Pounding, Heart Stopping Dating Sim Jam were a contest, Jurassic Heart would win. Which is why I’m going to do a brief playthrough, right here and right now, so you can see just how awesome it is.
First, let’s set the mood. Jurassic Heart is the story of a young girl, whom I’ve named Lunch, and her dashing classmate, a Tyrannosaurus named Taira. She accidentally broke Taira’s ukulele, so the two of them are going out on what could be considered their first “date” to buy a new one.
As expected from a game where a T-Rex is a high school student, it’s pretty off-the-wall. For example, the heroine’s first “choice” is what kind of hair clip to wear when she goes out with Taira. Here are the choices.
Well, of course you have to wear a Meat on the bone-shaped hair clip, Lunch! Though I will admit, I’m making her wear this because I’m curious to see if Taira will try to eat her head when he sees it.
That’s all you’ve got to say about your appetizer’s accent? I am disappointed, Taira. Anyways, complements exchanged, the two head to get a ukulele. Emotional stuff happens as Taira admits his instrument breaking was really more his fault than Lunch’s. He’s clearly broken up about it. Maybe.
Voila! The Jurassic Heart “good end”! Now I’m desperate to find out what a “bad end” looks like. If you’re curious too, either go play the game in your browser or download the free version for your Windows or Mac PC.
