DK64 turns 20 years old! . . .And Donkey Kong Country turns 25!!!!!

Everyone gather round! DKC turns a quarter-century old today!!!!


Dubz brought my attention to this special interview, with old Rare staff talking about the game. Listening to it now and it's good so far.


This is the singular game that cemented Rare's place and identity to the world. Its impact to video gaming as a whole cannot be understated.


Post/discuss anything DKC!!!



UPDATE: Aaaaaand Donkey Kong 64 celebrates its 20th birthday a day later. Looks like it's Monkey Week!



A little more. . .infamous than DKC was, DK64 left its own . . erm . . unique major impact on gaming. Take it to the fridge!!!

I got it when I was a kid and I loved it. I mean, I was never any good at it as a kid, not knowing the finer intricacies of the.. kongtrols.. but I absolutely loved the art direction, the killer soundtrack, the character / enemy design... I've since gone back and finished it and its Rare and Retro Studios sequels, but man, what a game.

The minecart levels, all two of them, were some of my favorites.

I'd kinda like to see a remaster of DK64 more than B-K. It could really use it more, and it'd be really fun.
