Crash Bandicoot Returns


For english :

Crash Bandicoot Returns is a longstanding project. Originally proposed as a model on the site ModDB it 6 years ago, the project was finally transformed into an independent game after the long-awaited release of the CryEngine 3. Meanwhile, the project has continued to evolve, a team was formed but the inevitable decline of the game ended up being right project, the fault of a poorly organized team and a lack of knowledge for all of us in terms of programming and development.

But six years have passed, I have not lost the desire to realize this project. In fact, I expected one thing: Form a new team, more organized, more motivated and more especially competent to successfully offer a real game and not just a tech demo.

I know many of you are waiting for this game for a long time and many had to beings disappointed after the cancellation of the project. Other independent developers have also tried the adventure by offering games, especially with Crystal's Wrath seems to be really cool.

But again, no playable game on the horizon, only videos, images and sincere promises of some developers who want to revive a forgotten series by some producers.

And that is where I will be very clear on the issue: No, this time I will not promise anything, I will not make the same mistakes as in the past because I do not want to disappoint the community that we supported.

But I can assure you that if the team is formed, I will do my best to make this project finally born and proves that it is possible to achieve a result worthy of the name to this iconic series.


Pour les français :

Crash Bandicoot Returns est un projet de longue date. Proposé au départ en tant que mod sur le site MODDB il y a 6 ans, le projet s'est finalement transformé en jeu indépendant après la sortie tant attendue du CryEngine 3. Entre temps, le projet a continué d'évoluer, une équipe fût formée mais le déclin inévitable du jeu a fini par avoir raison du projet, la faute à une équipe mal organisée et un manque de connaissances pour chacun d'entre nous en matière de programmation et développement.

Mais six années se soient écoulées, je n'ai pas perdu l'envie de réaliser ce projet. En fait, je n'attend qu'une seule chose : Former une nouvelle équipe, plus organisée, plus motivée et surtout plus compétente afin de réussir à vous offrir un véritable jeu et pas seulement une démo technique.

Je sais que beaucoup d'entre-vous attendent ce jeu depuis très longtemps et beaucoup ont dû êtres déçus après l'annulation du projet. D'autres développeurs indépendants ont également tenté l'aventure en proposant des jeux, notamment avec Crystal's Wrath qui semble être vraiment cool.

Mais là encore, aucun jeu jouable à l'horizon, seulement des vidéos, des images et des promesses sincères de quelques développeurs souhaitant ranimer une série oubliée par certains producteurs.

Et c'est en cela que je vais être très clair sur la question : Non, cette fois je ne vais rien vous promettre, je ne vais pas refaire les mêmes erreurs que par le passé car je ne veux plus décevoir la communauté qui nous a soutenu.

Mais je peux vous assurer que si l'équipe est formée, je ferais de mon mieux pour que ce projet voit enfin le jour et prouve qu'il est possible de réaliser une suite digne de ce nom à cette série emblématique.

Crash Bandicoot Returns is back!


Hi everybody !

I announce the resumption of the project but this time with a new team (under research) and a new engine.


Until now I was working with the CryEngine but after several attempts and significant problems with animations and integration of the characters, I decided to change the engine and switch to Unreal Engine 4.

Why ? For a variety of reasons, starting with the fact that it is a very well-oiled engine, much more used than the CryEngine and above, it can do more things and more intuitively. Not to mention the visual rendering that is closer to the Crash universe.



With the CryEngine it took no less than 3 months of hard to succeed just import the Crash 3D model into the engine. With the Unreal Engine, it took me around 10 minutes, including coffee.

Then there are many more possibilities and interesting plugins like NeoFur or SpeedTree, which allow to greatly improve the visual but also made to work more effectively.

Finally, I think it will be easier to find team members working with the Unreal Engine, rather than with CryEngine.

However, for the moment I only seek a new team and I am actively working on the new engine to learn the basics. However, I research a priority a new animator familiar with the Unreal Engine to work primarily on the gameplay.

For the rest, I research different people for different positions:

  • 3D modelers
  • Animators
  • Storyboarders
  • Texturers

All vacancies currently available in the Jobs section.
