Chris Seavor, director of Conker's Bad Fur Day and voice of the titular squirrel, recently expressed his desire to acquire Wii U dev kits for his studio Gory Detail's next game. Well, the chicken is in the pot, so please welcome our new mechanical canine friend, Rusty Pup!
Seavor and Shawn Pile, also of the old Conker crew, spilled the beans on The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup earlier today over on Nintendo Life. The game, which will arrive on 3DS and Wii U eShops in 2014, is a 2D puzzle platformer with shades of virtual pet raising and Lemmings. You don't directly control Rusty Pup but instead tool around with the environment to make sure he doesn't bite the big one. There's also a very deep story, which Seavor describes as mature without being obscene like Conker, and which hinges on the relationship that builds between Rusty Pup and you, the "narrator" of this adventure.
Gory Detail joins Nyamyam, another team of former Rare employees, in bringing their newest wares to Nintendo consoles. Little by little, the best that Rare had to offer are returning to their old stomping grounds, and it fills me with oh so much joy. Know what else fills me with joy? The Conker commentary that Seavor, Pile, and programmer Chris Marlow recorded a while back. Wonderful British potty humor!
