In other Crash Bandicoot news, did you know that the remastered version was built almost entirely from scratch? Considering the age of the title, the development team had very little to start off with.
Considering Crash Bandicoot’s age it makes one wonder just how far development went into remastering the title, and it seems the team went straight to the bare bones. Speaking to Ars Technica, Vicarious Visions designer Dan Tanguay revealed that most of the code had been redone for the upcoming remaster. “Almost everything was missing,” Tanguay said, revealing that Vicarious had to basically work from scratch.
“The original engine was specifically built for PlayStation 1,” Tanguay said. “Naughty Dog pushed [the PS1] to the limits. They made a fantastic engine for doing that. That engine didn’t see the light of day beyond PlayStation 1, as far as I know, and it certainly wasn’t usable by us. Any code, anything like that, we didn’t have access to.”
