Early Gamecube Prototype For Rare’s Kameo Unearthed

One of the games made by Rare for the Nintendo Gamecube was the beautiful Kameo. The game was originally in development for the platform, but after Microsoft purchased the developer it was later moved to the Xbox and Xbox 360. Very early footage of a prototype of Kameo has found its way online and gives us a look at how the game would have looked had it been on the Gamecube. There’s plenty of videos to watch if this takes your interest and you can view them all, here.

    1. It wasnt a dick move. You shoild watch the documentary about rare. At the point of the sold there wasnt almost any talented people at rare. Most of the team behind golden eye/perfect dark were already out (and making the awesome time splitters) and most of the people behind banjo, conker and KI were also out… The turth is that rare didnt have anyone outstandingly good when they release star fox adventure so buying it was the dick move… The only thimg that worthed a penny on that transaction were their IPs.

      1. Yes, you’re right and I’m aware of that. But I was talking about the IPs, sorry if I wasn’t clear enough.

        Also, some insiders said in the past that Nintendo made Rare fall into pieces by turning the environment very toxic. Probably we’ll never know whether or not this is true, but we have some clues on that, like this:

        But, yeah, really difficult to say how big was the beef…

    1. As much as I loved the Prime trilogy, I’d rather have all the awesome Rare IPs under Nintendo’s name than that. Especially with that horrible casual Streetpass Mii Plaza bullshit calling itself a Metroid game coming out at some point.

      *remembers who he’s talking to* Oh right. Nintendo fanboy that thinks every decision Nintendo makes is great even when it’s clearly a very bad one.

    1. Rare WAS terrible when they were making all of those kinect games. Now that Phil Spencer is in charge of Xbox, it looks like they’re making a comeback.

  3. This game could have been an excellent rare gamecube title, like Jet Force Gemini and Banjo for n64. Damn… i miss the old Rare.

    1. I miss their IPs. Talented people come & go. It’s up to their replacements to continue the trend of awesomeness. Apparently Nintendo didn’t want to pay the costs to hire talent to make Rare awesome again.

  4. Funny how people dont think it was a dumb as move for Nintendo selling rare before gettings.rights.to Conker, Banjo Kazooie ut what talent has Retro did one tropical.freeze? Still no metro. Retro aint did shit. After tropical freeze they aint did shit. At least Rare made Tooie immediately after Kazooie.

  5. And at least Rare thought about a Diddy Kong racing. When is Nintendo’s dumb ass going to think about game. Rare at least thought about working Starfox in Gamecube standards. Unlike Nintendo slow and stupid and aint up to Wii U standards. And whats Retro doing? Not a damn thing. I bet Retro aint even started NX games yet. Plus Nintendo was stupid not to hire kirk granthope. So all those people left rare why didnt Nintendo’s dumb ass think about grabbing those employees?

  6. At least Rare made games immediately after Diddy Kong racing to Golden eye, Banjo Kazooie, Conker, Tooie, DK64. They worked.. unlike Retro.

    1. You keep on calling Nintendo stupid, but all you show is your own stupidity, do you really think the people at retro are sitting at their studios and doing nothing, you can’t be this thick headed, yes they made tooie after kazooie, but they didn’t immediately mark threeie, tropical freeze came immediately after returns, expecting them make one after that is expected more from them than from rare, I don’t know if you have checked, but game development time has dramatically increased, its why there isn’t even that much games on the ps4/xbone either, a single cod game takes 3 years, and if you actually check your facts, they never even started on threeie, the reason Nintendo doesn’t look at daddy Kong racing is because they don’t have to, the already have mario kart, they can just add a overworld to that game,

      1. You said it takes 3 years for a single code? You also say Tropical Freeze was made immediately after Returns? So if Returns debuted in 2009 why didnt Tropical freeze debut as a launch tittle. Retro didnt even Immediately start work on a Metriod game after the one debuted in Wii. At least Rare made all those tittles for Ninteno Immediately after wach franchise. And Nintendo was too stupid not to hire those ex rare developers. Thats real talent.

    2. tbh most of Rare’s games were in development hell.
      Conker was supposed to be released way earlier. I think they kept putting him in games like Diddy Kong Racing and that GBA game because they were stuck in Bad Fur Day’s development.
      Diddy Kong Racing was born out of the fact they couldn’t finish Banjo-Kazooie in time.
      It was just luck that they came out one after the other.

  7. Also Threeie was completed already but because they worked right after Starfox Adventures but becauswNintendo was stupid and sold them Threeie was canceled. Too stupid not even to make Rare sign a contract for Threeie to still laucnh. Thats how stupid Nintendo is.

  8. Yet Nintendo couldnt had made Pikmin 4 immediately after Pikmin 3 for whatever stupid reason. Wii U could have had 2 pikmin tittles like Gamecube. Yet they thought a Pikmin mini movie wpuld be better than Pikmin 4 during the making of the Pikmin movie. That was stupid.

    1. So… when they are making sequels they are milking the franchise. When they aren’t making sequeles they are stupid. Ok.

  9. The purple dragon was a straight rip off Spyro, though it looks more like Skylanders Spyro than original Spyro or Legend of Spyro Spyro.
