Trivia

When Rare began developing a Nintendo 64 title based around their Conker the Squirrel character in 1998, it was to be known as "Conker's Quest" (which was later changed to "Twelve Tales: Conker 64"), and would have followed a gameplay style similar to their massively successful platformer Banjo-Kazooie (1998). However, early previews of the game drew a lukewarm response from videogame critics, who felt it was too similar to "Banjo-Kazooie" to make any impact in the industry. Rare quietly went back to the drawing board and virtually began working on the game from scratch again, leading many observers to believe that "Conker 64" had been canned. However, in January 2000, Rare announced it's forthcoming releases for the year, which surprisingly included a revamped Conker title, now retitled "Conker's Bad Fur Day", a game which turned out to be completely antithetic of it's earlier builds.

This Game Killed Conker
28 August 2015 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

He was a character who probably showed potential during his debut. I even thought he was destined for super stardom. But following a fatal mistake applied to him by Rare, we may never know.

Some games are aimed at kids, while others are aimed at mature gamers. But in Conker's case, he first two games are targeted at children before the game makers made the unorthodox decision in going to the other direction for the next two.

Apparently, Conker didn't score well in those mature games, judging by the disappointing sales of Conker's Bad Fur Day. And because Rare did not give the character a sequel or even fixed his personality, the bushy-tailed rodent was just about forgotten. Perhaps Conker would have sold way better had he stayed being in kids' games.

By contrast, other Rare characters like Banjo and Kazooie were never altered. Because of that, those two continue to make games with good sales, therefore keeping their popularity up. I guess this goes to show that it's best never to alter characters, especially if their previous games have a good or at least fair reception. Also, games appear to sell better when marketed to kids or all ages.

Games aimed at mature audiences can be marketable too, that is if the characters are designed for that nature from the start.

In light of the events that occurred, Banjo and Kazooie will remain being Rare's most famous characters, and Conker will likely end up in the video game wasteland.
