When Team Dakota and Microsoft announced they would be bringing Conker back in the Conker’s Big Reunion DLC pack for Project Spark, it got many excited to once again play everyone’s favorite sex-crazed, cigar-smoking, alcoholic squirrel once again. After all, we haven’t seen him since 2005’s Conker: Live & Reloaded on the original Xbox.
We still have a couple weeks before we’ll get to jump into the pseudo-sequel to Conker’s Bad Fur Day, but that doesn’t mean Team Dakota can’t whet our appetites a bit while we wait. The developer took to their Twitch channel last night for a quick stream to show off some work done by the Lead Environment Artist on Conker’s Big Reunion, Matt Lucas. In 48 hours, Lucas recreated the first few minutes of Conker’s Bad Fur Day in Project Spark. He plays through it in the video below:
That is Conker’s Bad Fur Day in glorious high-definition. The attention to detail taken by the developers here is staggering. My main concern when this was announced was whether the game will play like a Conker title or pale in comparison. We won’t truly know until we play it, but considering it was designed all within Project Spark and in just two days, this is a great showcase of what can be done in Spark. Heck, if this all goes well, maybe we will see Rare get a chance to make a true sequel to the game.
Until then, you can just keep re-watching the new trailer after the jump.
