Episode 1 of Conker's Bad Fur Day DLC for Project Spark that was announced last month will cost $5, and will take you about an hour to complete, developer Team Dakota has announced.

Conker's Big Reunion episode 1, as Team Dakota is calling it, was made with the same Project Spark tools that are available to players, and is meant to play like what you’d expect from a Conker game, an action-platformer with a dirty sense of humor. If you want to make your own Conker content, you can purchase the Conker Mega Pack, which includes the Conker Creation Pack (containing more than 350 Conker assets), Conker’s Big Reunion, and Champions Quest Episode 1 for $10.

The Conker content will hit Project Spark on April 23.

"I don’t know what is in store for Conker beyond Project Spark (and Conker’s inclusion here is not limiting other plans for this irreverent squirrel), but I'm hoping that Conker’s Big Reunion is going to set the bar for how to build a great Conker game," Team Dakota Design Director Brad Rebh said.

Team Dakota didn't say if or when it plans to release new episodes, but invited players to create more Conker games using the Conker Creation Pack.

Microsoft stressed the point that Conker's inclusion in Project Spark doesn't limit the company from any other plans it might have for the character. Last month, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that there isn't a new Conker game in development at Rare or another studio the moment, but that Microsoft hasn't ruled out the possibility either.

Project Spark, which lets players create their own game content, is free to download on Xbox One and Windows 8.1

@willjohnboy: You just have to take into account they can't dish out games like nothing, there is a budget to meet like any company and they aren't a bank, they need to make sure they'll make profit first.


Even though it's annoying to us, it's smart that they've put Conker into one of their developing franchises. It's win - win ; promotes Project Spark and tests the waters on demand for Conkers Bad Fur Day.

I think people are missing the fact that creators can make an endless amount of Conkar games. I bet remakes will come to. Project Spark is in the hands of creators. I've played some amazing games from devoted creators on the platform, as well as terrible ones. However, a game like Conkar fits well with the tool creation set, and it will be interesting to see what comes from it.

Poor Rare... used to be you could pick up a Rare product and it'd be awesome be it an FPS, platformer or racing game. Now, you just can't find anything good from 'em since 2001.

I don't know how to tell you this, but your game looks like the Great Mighty Poo.

@deltabtry: Yeah. Let him rest in dignity.

Conkers debuts were scarce but fun... diddy kong racing and conkers bfd.


The only thing I would like to see is the old xbox's conkers bfd version with multiconker ported to steamworks... sniff... that would be a dream.

Ok .. i gotta be pure honest guys

I never find Conker an interesting character , let alone an iconic one .. very awkward series

really boring character and a cheap version of Tails from Sonic

sorry if this hurts RARE fans but this is just my opinion :\

@MAXAM999: Did you play Bad Fur Day though? NOTHING like Sonic (besides the looks) and the game was so much fun! I'm a gaming snob (I only play 8.5 + games with little exception) and that game was a blast. The single player was hilarious and perfectly executed, and don't get me started on the multiplayer.

@MAXAM999: I thought Tails was a pretty boring character myself. I don't think anyone thought Conker was an iconic character. Not sure where you heard that at. He's about as iconic as Earth Worm Jim. Just my opinion.

It looks ok, but I want a full version sequel and not episodes. Give me a complete game and I'll be happy. It will be interesting to see what gamers come up with using the Conker Creation Pak.

@hood_honky: that just shows a lack of confidence in their own products if they aren't willing to give the resources necessary to make a proper game. they shouldn't talk big and misinform the community of how much love rare and their ip of old if they don't really mean it. everything they have done to this point proves otherwise.

You are thinking too much into it and you are coming up with your own conclusions that could very much be wrong. How do you know they dont have more of Rare's great IP in the works and this conker pak is just a taste for what's to come. One thing I do know for sure, since Phil Spencer became the Xbox boss he has held up all of his promises and If he say more of Rare's IP are coming I believe it.

@Xristophoros@hood_honky: "confidence in their own products"?

lemme guess, you are either a teenager or you just work for others and have no clue about running a business. having blind confidence in something is the quickest way for you to fall flat on your face.

@GraveUypo: let me guess, you are so desperate for anything rare-related at this point that you will even defend mediocrity. go on, keep deluding yourself that this cheap thing they call a "game" is worth your time.

If I want to play good platformers, I'll play either Nintendo or PC. Conker is a thing of the past and people should be aware of that.

@Talavaj: it could be somewhat decent if it wasn't so limited (the maximum level size is tiny, so you can't make a big seamless game) and if it didn't run like crap on xone (seriously, this things runs close 20fps all the time. who the hell was in charge of this thing?)

There is level linking that allows you to build as big as you want. Many games run fine on XOne, but creators need to design properly. I find games with too many primitives to be the biggest issue.
