    It looks like everyone got tired and afraid of the possible future of any kind of adventure game from now Xbox owned Rare. So the original developers decided to take matters into their own hands.​

    Meant to share this image as well, which gives me super excited goosebumps, directly from their website.

    A new Conker-type game would be lovely.

    Some lizard thing, and something else behind him. At first I thought the creature in the back had a beak, but after I brightened the image, I saw it was the character in the fronts ear.

    The new Donkey Kong games are okay, but meh, they lack the oomph old Rare used to give them. Hopefully these guys "get it".

    Looks like a elephant to me, hmm DKC??

    edit: Well a spiritual successor, maybe something with just the animal buddies.

    I want to be hyped, but does anyone remember the last time "former key members" of a company (naughty dog) came together to make a game? We got Sonic Boom. Then again, this IS Rare we're talking about.

    Gave it a go myself and it's definitely a lizard of some kind. The second character is probably a bird, more than likely a parrot or macaw to fit with the tropical theme.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Indeed. Rare was awesome before Microshit Games derped them up hard. Microsoft has done way too much yo-yoing in quality over the years.

    That's the original rare though.

    I have 900% more faith knowing the guys that left DUE to Microsoft being asshats, are creating the game.

    I also hope they partner back up with Nintendo to do it, then maybe it can pave the way for them creating content for Nintendo again.

    Am I remembering wrong, or did A Hat in Time stop updating?

    If so, at least Banjo fans are getting their spiritual successor one way or the other.

    Looks like the official page updated on 2nd of this month. No mention of it stopping, as far as I can see.

    Oh I would kill to get a new GOOD Banjo game... The Banjo (instrument) was pretty aparent in the Banjo games, what games had Ukulele music?
    Then again, a SPIRITUAL successor often takes most elements of an old game and throws new characters, new environments etc. Maybe Ukulele is the lizard cousin of Banjo? :D hypehypehypehypehype :wub:
    *starts praying to cthulhu* please be a Wii U title.

    Well that's good. I could've sworn there was some shenanigans or drama, but I might just be thinking of another game.

    When it comes to Kickstarted titles, Lord knows there's plenty of that to go around.
