What’s It’s Like To Date A “Jurassic Park” Dinosaur

You’ll never really know, but this is the next best thing. “Jurassic Heart” is a dating sim that explores the love between a girl and her Tyrannosaurus rex classmate.

If you’ve never played a dating sim, you’re missing out. These are simple text-based games in which you make a series of choices with different results — think Choose Your Own Adventure with anime style. “Jurassic Heart” is a fairly straightforward entry into the genre … except that the object of your affection is a T. Rex named Taira-kun.

2. The story begins with you in your bedroom.

Your first date with Taira-kun is to buy a ukulele. We’ll get into why later. For now, just accept that this is a reasonable outing for you and your dinosaur crush.

3. Ready for your first choice?

I picked the meat on the bone hair clip in the hopes that Taira-kun would try to eat my head. He did not.

4. Um, yeah, I’m pretty sure the dinosaur likes meat.

This character is kind of dumb. I regret naming her Louis.

5. This is Taira-kun, by the way.

Also, duh.

6. It’s still pretty exciting when you realize he’s into you.

7. Off to the music store!

How does a dinosaur play a ukulele? I DON’T KNOW.

8. And here comes the clunky exposition.

You encouraged Taira-kun to play and he dropped his ukulele. It doesn’t really seem like your fault, to be honest.

9. This is the problem with dating a dinosaur, really.

10. And it leads to your next choice.

Taira-kun feels bad about you paying for the ukulele and wants to get it on his own. I suggested we split it, because that’s the sensible thing to do, and I’m really good at dating.

11. I think we’re flirting.

If you suggest splitting the ukulele, you go on to say you can share it. But because you can’t play the ukulele, you’ll have to sing. Cuuute. If I were making this into a movie, I’d cast Zooey Deschanel in both roles.

12. Yep. Definitely flirting.

13. Ukulele size doesn’t matter.

As long as your dinosaur is happy, guys.

14. Location change!

You say good night, but the date doesn’t have to be over. Follow Taira-kun’s lead. He’s a dinosaur.

ID: 1063531

15. Make the right choice. Lie if you have to.

Taira-kun totally wants to do it.

ID: 1063532

16. Ohhh, shit.

OK, I’m going to stop you right now. This doesn’t actually lead to hot dino-on-human action. Alas, it’s just not that kind of game.

ID: 1063537

17. If you stick around, Taira-kun shares his sob story with you.

More like whine-osaur, amirite?

ID: 1063541

18. Once upon a time, he dropped his ukulele.

And he couldn’t pick it up, because dinosaur. HOW DID HE PLAY IT, THOUGH. I need answers.

ID: 1063545

19. Luckily, you know just what to say.

Sad spoiler alert: there is no kissing either.

ID: 1063549

21. Well, you’re at least getting a second date.

ID: 1063552


How did the game know??

ID: 1063557

23. This is so goddamn sweet.

You tell Taira-kun that if he ever drops his ukulele again, you’ll be there to pick it up. That’s love.

ID: 1063562

24. Now it’s Taira-kun’s turn to blush!

At least we’re acknowledging that he’s a giant dinosaur.

ID: 1063568

25. Finally, you get to jam together.

Turns out “Louis” is a cute red-haired girl. Story of my life.

ID: 1063574

26. Everyone’s happy. But what about a second date?

It’s inconclusive. Let’s just go ahead and assume this story ends in marriage.

ID: 1063582

27. But yes, let’s relax and stay in the moment.

One day you rule the earth, the next day you’re literally a fossil.
