Report article RSS Feed The bandicoot is not dead and will return soon!

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.

Posted by Lenox47 on Mar 11th, 2013

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:

  • There will be Neo Cortex
  • There will obviously Coco
  • We think seriously to create a level with Polar (the Pooh in CB2)
  • And I also confirmed that the project will have for the moment only 5 levels

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.

Lenox

I'll never in my lifetime have a computer good enough to run any type of a CryENGINE based game, but this is extremely exciting. Looking forward to at least seeing a few videos of it. :)

Also, when you say "the game will stand alone" does this mean you don't need Crysis to play it, just the Cryengine SDK?

In fact you do not need to get anything because the game will be playable once downloaded and installed like any game :)

The return of Crash Bandicoot: Return! For sure one of the best games that i played when i was a child :D Keep on good working!

Be creative and you can do anithing you don't have to do a clone of the game you can put co-op games you can do everthing (obiously with time ;D) you only have to keep the original idea of the game!!

I'm tracking this game from the begining i guess , i love it :D

Im intrigued to see this. crash 1-3 rock, but the others suck. dont do titan crash design and go back to glory days of the 3d platformer for success. Crash needed only a spin attack to have massive fun.

Do not be worried, I do not like the other crash, except CTR. The game is based on the concept of the first three episodes only. There will however be some more stuff but that will not affect the gameplay.
