Crash Bandicoot Returns was originally to be a simple mod for Crysis. But thanks to Crytek and its graphics engine, the CryEngine 3, it finally gives us the opportunity to develop a game in itself, totally free and for PC. CBR will be a sequel and not a remake of the series.

Post news Report content RSS feed Small update for the month of April

A new video is online. This small update contains the new version of the mode "Tornado" and the correction of credit unions bugged.

Posted by Lenox47 on Apr 11th, 2011

Hello to you all,

I really want to write a new article to inform you of the new video posted.

You can discover the update "Tornado's mode", and some corrections on the particles, the HUD and the crates.

As many have pointed out to me, the HUD was a shadow and it is true that it was pretty useless. So I removed at the request of some of you.

Regarding events, except the "Tornado's animation", nothing has changed, however, I want to be repeating:

The current animations are not mine! These animations from the game Crysis. In other words, the biped is absolutely not suitable for Crash. So understand that for the moment the animation is like nothing.

However, few people volunteered for animation, so I'm waiting to see what happened next. However, we also need someone to integrate animations and biped. I could do, but I do not know what is the procedure. And as the tutorials are scarce, it is quite difficult to solve the problem.

Anyway, the next update will include all cases and maybe a new part of Level Design I hope. As for Aku Aku, I am trying to program it, but it is difficult to create because I have to assign vectors of random positions, but without it being too abrupt. It is a real headache!

Hoping you enjoy this new video ;)

I finally said that the Mod now has a Facebook page, so feel free to ask around :

I'm really glad I found this!
Pretty much everything resembles the good old crash bandicoot, except for the graphics, it looks so much better this way.

Indeed an innovative idea.

I was going to rant about copyright stuff but then I noticed this was a mod xD
Nevertheless, a new crash bandicoot should be made with the current technology in my opinion.

Anyway, this looks awesome, I just think the game could be more fast-paced. Right now it seems like you're playing in slow-motion. Maybe it's the animations' speed or something, but even the jump looks very slow.

Regardless, congratz for a job well done!

Indeed, the animations and movement speed are related. Furthermore, physics is very special in the CryEngine 2. However, I have several solutions to resolve the problems. But first I look to find a character's animator :)
