The man who made Conker – Rare's most adult game

by on November 23, 2012

Chris Seavor left Rare in January 2011 after 17 years at the legendary UK developer. While there he worked on most of the studio’s games: Killer Instinct, Perfect Dark and Banjo-Kazooie included. But he’s best known for taking the cute Twelve Tales: Conker 64 and turning it into the profanity and poo packed N64 adventure Conker’s Bad Fur Day – Rare’s last game for a system that had never seen anything like it.

After the studio he so loved was bought by Microsoft he remade Conker’s Bad Fur day for the Xbox. Conker: Live & Reloaded launched in 2005 with dumbed down content and Live-enabled multiplayer. We haven’t seen a game in the series since.

After that, Seavor headed up multiple Xbox 360 projects that never saw the light of day, some much discussed, some never discussed. Conker 2, Perfect Dark Core, Ordinary Joe and Urchin, among others. He saw Kameo 2, a motion control game called Savannah and more fall by the wayside.
