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.

Brilliant just brilliant. now all you need to do is work on his pose while he runs & stands & then move on to his other moves like the slide attack, double jump, & belly flop :) the supper tornado for Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped would also be nice to add if its not too much trouble.

Thank you! : D

I plan to add the "Double Twister's mode" and all other movements, but it will take time, so I would not have found a animator and successfully integrate suitable skeleton.

And no, the gravity is the original. But your comment gave me an idea to solve the problem! : D Thanks a lot!

Getting better and better. The tornado animation is far away from perfect, but that's OK until you got the others done. Then you should work on the details.
I'm so looking forward to this...

Given you're working with CryEngine2, I'd suggest experimenting with replacing the current cartoon swirl-thing with an exaggerated motion blur. The exaggerated part would not only help "ground" the cartoon-y nature of Crash, it would also prevent the animation from looking TOO realistic.
EDIT: I do not have any experience with creating custom mods for Crysis; sorry if I made it sound like I did.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to integrate the tornado passing by a animation because it involves changing the way the engine interprets the source code for not bugue when moving along the way Tornado.

For this reason I used a simple rotation instead of an animation. But again, nothing doing, the current biped is not that of Crash, but that of Crysis.

Well the tornado for me seems kinda odd , maybe instead of little lines you might need to do it abit diffrently but i aint sure how exactly.

Also i do hope you make it run smoother / faster cause it just looks akward in a Crash game that its that slow

why dont you go play the playstation one version again troll hater, the tornado is awsome espeacially since its 3d and not just a animated sprite that is only 2d. and maybe his pc cant run crysis that fast, you should just change your name to greatdick

Ohhh sorry to say, gravity should be adjusted, and jump height higher instead of gravity reduced. Also, it seems crash takes a while to get up to speed, perhaps make his 'acceleration' higher and 'top speed' lower (lol)

Wow. Amazing. So glad that someone decided to remake Crash.

P.S. To the commenters- This mod is being made by a single guy. What do you expect people. This is an amazing achievment. Cut some slack.

Looks like progress so far. Too bad I'm still learning 3DS Max though as I would love to help out.

I notice that the HUD objects are treated as part of the game world (shadows, motion blur, lighting) so you might want to look into that.

wonderful. the animations could use a bit of work, but the effects are near perfect. so, when it's finished and released, will you have the permission to sell it? or for that matter distribute it publicly? i'd love to play this.

P.S. I feel you should strap together a beta or demo for crash fans who haven't seen this vid to realize ur serious about it. plus the demo could be mad fun :D

Description

Big update on the crates, and the Tornado's mode.

Now, Crash does a real movement and I do not need to detach the camera for that. I also created new animations for the boxes, including CheckPoint and life, and a new explosion's particle for the crates.

As some people have remarked to me, I also removed the shadow of the HUD :)
