Crash Bandicoot Returns is a longstanding project. Originally proposed as a model on the site ModDB it 6 years ago, the project was finally transformed into an independent game after the long-awaited release of the CryEngine 3. Meanwhile, the project has continued to evolve, a team was formed but the inevitable decline of the game ended up being right project, the fault of a poorly organized team and a lack of knowledge for all of us in terms of programming and development.
But six years have passed, I have not lost the desire to realize this project. In fact, I expected one thing: Form a new team, more organized, more motivated and more especially competent to successfully offer a real game and not just a tech demo.
I know many of you are waiting for this game for a long time and many had to beings disappointed after the cancellation of the project. Other independent developers have also tried the adventure by offering games, especially with Crystal's Wrath seems to be really cool.
But again, no playable game on the horizon, only videos, images and sincere promises of some developers who want to revive a forgotten series by some producers.
And that is where I will be very clear on the issue: No, this time I will not promise anything, I will not make the same mistakes as in the past because I do not want to disappoint the community that we supported.
But I can assure you that if the team is formed, I will do my best to make this project finally born and proves that it is possible to achieve a result worthy of the name to this iconic series.
After a day of rest (no I don't work on Sunday ... almost not ... Well ok I kinda worked but shhh!), I decided to make some screenshots for your enjoyment. The videos... it's good! But images without pixelation... it's always better!
And for bonus, there is the new official logo of the game (probably not the final logo):
Moreover, I have a little changed Aku Aku to make it more colorful but I have not yet realized the texturing. And saw my feeble skill in texturing, I hope to find a specialist quickly (I have someone in mind but for now he is a little busy).
Meanwhile, I had some feedback from people interested in the project, including three modelers. I'll let you know as soon as I know more, but for now I'm still single at work and I confess I always some troubles with animations. I really struggle to understand how to integrate them as player's animations. I found some tutorials but I can not seem to get the same result...
So if you read this and you know how to do, your help is welcome!

And there is the new official website in english and french :
