Crash Bandicoot made using CryEngine 2

We’ve always wanted a new Crash Bandicoot, and it seems we finally got our hands on one. Although, not official, this sweet mod made using CryEngine 2 brings Crash Bandicoot to the HD era, and in style.

Crash Bandicoot was made by Naughty Dog for the Sony platforms, and was an incredibly successful franchise. Sony, unfortunately don’t have the IP, which they probably regret now. The Crash Bandicoot IP now belongs to Activision, and it will be a long time before they even green light a project like this.

Take a look at the video below, which shows Crash in action, navigating gorgeous looking environments. It looks like it’s a bit unoptimized but they should get it running smoothly in no time.

    I kinda feel like this has a good chance of ruining my childhood.

    That being said, if it’s good I’ll rejoice!

    Very pretty.

    But it looks super boring and buggy, especially the jump mechanics. Hopefully this is just super early stages, because this has potential.
