See Crash Bandicoot Rendered in Cry Engine
File this under “things that looks neat but are actually kinda lame.” Some guy made a Crysis mod in which he recreates the beginning of Crash Bandicoot, and it’s gorgeous. It’s probably the most visually attractive platformer in history, really. It’s also clunky as hell, so folks aren’t going to be rushing to try it out any time soon. Anyway, it’s worth a look at the video, if nothing else. It certainly helped improve morale here in Owen Towers after the tornado rolled through 45 minutes ago.
