Conker’s Bad Fur Day
publisher thq / last seen 2005
Conker’ s Bad Fur Day never developed into a franchise. But it’s a classic example of the sort of game they used to make but probably wouldn’t dare to these days. The puzzle-platform game starts with Conker, a squirrel with a very bad attitude, wrestling with a hangover; one whole level – Poo Mountain – is entirely composed of excrement, and its Great Mighty Poo boss must be attracted with sweetcorn then attacked with toilet roll. Microsoft, bless it, remade the game as Conker: Live And Re loaded in 2005 as an Xbox exclusive, after buying its legendary developer, Rare Software, in 2002.
