Life finds a way — but that doesn’t mean you can’t help a little. This weekend at Gamescom in Germany, developer Frontier announced a new title called Jurassic World Evolution, which will let players design and build the dinosaur-filled theme park of their dreams.

And while the debut trailer doesn’t show any real gameplay, it does show the elements you’d expect from the franchise, including a rampaging T. rex, heavily fortified buildings, a huge expanse of jungle, and that stirring Jurassic Park theme. Movie tie-ins are rarely exciting, but Frontier has a good deal of experience in the theme park sim genre — including titles like Planet Coaster, Scream Ride, and the adorable Kinect-enabled Zoo Tycoon — so there’s reason to be optimistic.

Jurassic World Evolution will be available next summer on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
