First 10 minutes of Conker's Bad Fur Day recreated in Project Spark

Nuts.

The opening of N64 classic Conker's Bad Fur Day has been recreated in Project Spark, Microsoft's game creation sandbox.

The level is the work of Project Spark developer Team Dakota, but will be released as a community level alongside the upcoming Conker Reunion Pack, which includes a new episodic adventure for Rare's foul-mouthed squirrel.

Team Dakota streamed footage of its Bad Fur Day level via Twitch last night. It's still a work in progress - the result of just two days work by one designer - but has Conker's gameplay and script firmly in place.

Yesterday, Microsoft released an official Conker's Big Reunion trailer. The new adventure will be released as a paid add-on for Project Spark on 23rd April, with a separate pack that will enable you to create your own Conker levels.
