Conker’s Bad Fur Day creator Chris Seavor has a new title in the works that’s coming to both the Wii U and the 3DS eShop. The game is a 2D platformer with some dark elements, leading to a mature and serious story as the game progressed. Called The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, the game will be released some time in 2014.
In a recent interview, Chris Seavor and partner and former ex-Rare developer Shawn Pile discuss the game and its darker side.
“It’s all very much about the story, it’s a very sad tale. It’s not dark as in ‘mature’ — it’s not got swearing in it, or anything like that. It’s quite a serious and adult story, but still a fun and hopefully playable game with lots going on. There will be moments of dark humour, but nothing gory.”
Fans of Seavor’s work with Conker’s Bad Fur Day will want to keep their eye on this one, as Seavor has proven to be a competent developer that can deliver mature titles with a crack of humor to their intended audiences.
