Post Twelve Tales: Conker 64

I was thinking about this game earlier, and decided to look around IGN. After reading this preview for the game, I'm kind of a little sad that we lost it. Don't get me wrong, I love Bad Fur Day (it's even in my top 5 N64 games), but this just seems like it would have been really cool as well.

The thing that stuck out to me the most reading that, I think, is the two-player co-op ability and the fact that Conker and Berri would have had apparently slightly-varied adventures, depending on who you chose to play as in single player.

I'm about to go look through some old Nintendo Power issues and read more about the game, for the hell of it.

Anyway...ITT: Discuss what could have been with Conker, Twleve Tales: Conker 64.

This would be great game like Banjo-Kazooie,Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-Tooie.
Visit www.64dd.net and www.unseen64.net for Conker 64 stuffs.

Man...the game really seems like it was pretty far along by the time it was scrapped.

Conker 64 was show on E3 1998.
When Rare cancelled this game? In 1999 or in 2000?
In polish magazine Neo Plus there was preview of Conker 64 in April 1999 and in Banjo-Tooie preview from Febuary 2000 there was said that Conker 64 "maybe will cancelled"

From what I can find, it was announced to be replaced by CBFD very early in 2000.

This is the kind of game that makes me wish the Rare community had someone like drx (of the Sonic community) who is able to acquire prototypes of games...a prototype of TTC64 would be amazing.

Well, I'm not saying I'd give up BFD for the sake of having it, but I still think it would have been kind of cool.

Typical N64 platformer
On videos we can see that there was great levels and good music.

I think...it must've been completed or at the very least, ridiculously close to being finished, does seem polished doesn't it?

I heard that DKR was to introduce us to Rare's (at the time) cast of characters (many of which were spawned from Project Dream) to allow for a greater sense of familairity when their individual games were released. See Banjo & Conker specifically, but also, I think there may have been a Timber-oriented game planned too...

At least we still Have Pocket Tales I suppose.

This may have been one of the stupidest things Rare has ever done, in my opinion.

I mean, if they wanted, they could have made an adult Conker later on. They could have put it on the Xbox when they were bought out (not that they knew they'd be bought out, but I'm just saying it would have been for the better if they just released Twelve Tales). Jesus.

Don't get me wrong. I love Conker's Bad Fur Day... Just saying, the game was damn near completion! Why chuck the whole thing away?

Yeah, what makes the least amount of sense to me is the fact that they COMPLETELY scrapped it in favor of Bad Fur Day. Surely they could have made both, especially with how far along TT seems to have been?

Yeah, I think that's how it was. Also, a Timber game would actually make sense. Wasn't it Timber's Island that Wizpig was terrorizing in DKR?

This game was to be Conker's Pocket Tales in 3D. That would have been pretty fun. Conker's Bad Fur Day was a good game, but the actual gameplay was somewhat weak. If it weren't the crude humor, I feel that the game wouldn't have gotten as much praise.

I've honestly always thought this game looked amazing...damn, I wish we had it. I still love BFD, but I really wish this had come out too.

One thing I find irritating, however, is the music.
