Rare dev wanted to start Kameo 2 immediately

Speaking to at last week's Develop conference in Brighton, Rare senior software engineer Nick Burton has revealed that he was keen to begin work on a Kameo sequel immediately after the first game was complete.

"This is just me personally, I was very big for the second we got Kameo out, for hitting the deck running and going right we're doing Kameo 2, we're going to take 12 to 18 months to do it, bang, it's done," explained Burton. "But for one reason or another we didn't do that in the time frame where you could hit that sweet spot. So she's got to take a hiatus."

There certainly needs to be a sequal to Kameo imo. It's a solid platformer with beautiful graphics and art style.

They are a mere glimpse of what they were formerly and nothing of their games for the last 5 years have been any good.

All this RARE PROPAGANDA is starting to piss me off. No, RARE talking shiat, does not mean that reality is altered. Reality is still that 360 is an ancient RRODing device that is not futureproof and that lacks half of the MUST HAVE GAMES this generation.

The reality is that you are a f*cking moron. : )

Kameo was a GORGEOUS game.

poor droids are just jealous they still don't have a game which looks as good, lol.

I have been waiting on a sequel to Kameo since it was released. I guess I am one of the few that really liked this game. Titles like this are too far and few on the 360. Now if only Rare could make a new Conker, Killer Instinct and PD0 sequel.

Edit: I just read in another article Rare is working on a new Conker! 1 down 2 more to go.

elitewh0re3723d ago

wait, a new conker wasnt confirmed, just joked with right?! yeah i actually quite enjoyed kameo too, not sure how the sequel would work, i can't remember the ending exactly, but didnt she restore order to the kingdom?

Dark_Vendetta3722d ago (Edited 3722d ago )

I would love a sequel too.
Yes she restored everything and turned her sister into stone including this big goblin. But as I remember there was still the witch. She turned out to be bad at the end
Edit: Did you know that Kameo had 3000 trolls and 1000 humans at once on the big battlefield. That's quite impresssive for a launch title
(quote: ...and I just looked at the performance and we can have a couple more thousand if we want as well. In the end they said let's leave it at 4000, we'll have 3000 trolls and 1000 guys.)

I really enjoyed kameo and I tell anyone that ask about what games to get to pick it up especially if they are looking for something cheap cause you can get the game for 10 dollars. I actually see a lot of people suggest it as a good cheap game so while it doesnt have a gow or halo type fan based it does have a good size fanbased

spunnups3723d ago

talk as much as Microsoft, no wonder they're in bed together. Too bad Rare is just a shell of what they used to be.

NewSchoolGamer3723d ago (Edited 3723d ago )

when do these guys plan to shut up. If you are going to do something do it. Don't run your mouth all day talking about some game you are going to make.

In my opinion they are just trying to make some hype for their upcoming games.

elitewh0re3723d ago

when do you ever plan to shut up? "In my opinion they are just trying to make some hype for their upcoming games" no sh1t sherlock...

Xi3722d ago

all the Rare stories are from the same site, and the same article which has been split into several parts.

Viktor E3723d ago

But couldn't do so based on the limitations on the Xbox platform.

Bangladesh3723d ago

The 360 needs something with no limit to what it can do, maybe something like your anus.

silverchode3722d ago

im guessing you've been to his anus to know it has no limits.
