A desire to be different and some serendipitous daftness were key factors in Conker's tonal shift, explains voice of Bad Fur Day's big dung pile and Senior Engineer @ChrisMarlow666. All while standing in a (fittingly) windy shed for backdrop reasons. Phenomenal production values. https://t.co/dmGUv2X4pB pic.twitter.com/wmLcm5syN2— Rare Ltd. (@RareLtd) February 13, 2020
Ever wonder how the friendly, cutesy Twelve Tales: Conker 64 turned into the rude and crude Conker's Bad Fur Day? In the video above, RARE Senior Software Engineer Chris Marlow talks about what lead to the team making such a big decision. It turns out RARE felt like their colorful platformer was going to get lost in the crowd, so they decided to make a big left turn and go full-on raunchy. Seems like the right decision to us!
