New Non-Sweary Title Incoming From Conker’s Bad Fur Day

by on June 24, 2013

We have learned today via Nintendo Life that Chris Seavor – one of the folks behind cult N64 classic Conker’s Bad Fur Day – is working on another game with his new Gory Detail studio..

Unlike their previous offering Parashoot Stan, which was for iOS devices, the new title will be given the amusing moniker: The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup. While this may sound vaguely naughty or scatological, Seavor explains that it is a darkly comic platformer that certainly doesn’t include any profanity, or even a bit of gore:

“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.”

As well as the gameplay, Seavor promises a strong storyline, as well as some interesting god sim/Tamagotchi stuff going on:

“The character is becoming the important thing. You’re caring about this character. There are added elements which make it quite like a virtual pet game, a nurture game — you’ve got this character you want to keep alive. Rather than you’re controlling him to get from A to B, you’re controlling everything else to make sure that he doesn’t die. Within that framework, you’ve got your traditional kind of gameplay — platforms that move, monsters that get out of the way, monsters which don’t — but Rusty always has a relationship with you. You’re the narrator. So in that way, it’s like a God game — it’s not strictly a God game, but it’s got narration and this mysterious figure — which is you. I’m going to do some little twists and turns with the logic of the story, so there’s a reason for the character to be there. It’s not like Angry Birds or Jetpack Joyride — there’s a reason this character is here. He just doesn’t seem to know why.”

Rusty Pup looks set to make a future appearance on the Wii U and 3DS eShop, and certainly looks like one to look out for.
