Conker’s Bad Fur Day creator Chris Seavor has a title in the works for the Wii U and 3DS eShop, and it’s got little hints of Lemmings in there. Loosely described as a 2D platformer with additional dark elements to create a unique depth, Gory Detail’s The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup is quite serious and mature in story, but is still fun and enjoyable to play.
Speaking in an interview with Nintendo Life about Rusty Pup, Chris Seavor and ex-Rare developer Shawn Pile are looking to debut the title on the eShop at some point next year. And despite the game being a little on the darker side, Seavor says it won’t involve anything gory or any swearing, but it does involve those “hints” of Lemmings.
“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.
“It’s a 2D platformer, but with depth to it. You physically move in and out of the screen. It’s also got hints of Lemmings in there. The game has a core gameplay mechanic — and when I say mechanic I mean something you do which will effect something else in the gameworld — which we can’t say because it will give so much away!”
