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.
After months of endless waiting for you all, I have the great pleasure to announce that the CBR project is not dead! Quite the contrary. The hunt for wumpas will resume soon.

Rather than give you false hopes, I preferred not to give any information during this time. But I have now created a new team this time a programmer and potentially an animator. Of course, we are always looking for experienced animators and programmers to join us in this adventure!
Anyway, our way of working has drastically changed. Now we are more organized, more motivated and more particularly able to create a game worthy of the name.
Both good news of the day, except for the resumption of the project is that we will develop this time on the CryEngine 3 and not on the CryEngine 2. Allowing us to not only have total freedom but also a rendering much better. The second good news : The game will stand alone.
Finally, I am working in parallel on a mini card game based on the rules of Triple Triad (A card game in Final Fantasy VIII). But based on the universe of Crash Bandicoot. The real version is now available. But we will also create the digital version and will normally be included in the final game: Crash Bandicoot Returns. Or we will provide you with separately. This will depend on various constraints.
Finally with regard to information about the game, I can confirm a few details:
Regarding the following, we will develop gradually as per 5 levels. We prefer to do so, like the DLC, for more liberty and to limit the waiting times. Also, I can confirm that the game will be completely free and available online for PC only. Rest assured, we optimize the game as much as possible to give you the best gaming experience possible without sacrificing visual quality.
I thank you all. Without you, I do not know if I would have taken the project. Thank you all for your support.
