I'm definitely in.  I love little non-violent games just as much as I do the bloody ones.

Oh, same here, it's just amusing to see these two developers of major-huge titles turning out smaller-scale, inventive games for their next titles.  smile

If you look at the ad it says N64

This looks great but could it be an april fools joke?

Rare was a 2nd party developer for the N64, back around 2004. Just like the ill-fated grabbed by the ghoulies and Conker's Bad Fur Day, it looks like this is another N64 left-over IP.

So I'm thinking Animal Farm may be more of a me-too than the original (it just came out first). Odd to see it that way.

Let's hope Rare can crank out a 100% quality product (I do like PD0, but it isn't done).

This looks like Microsoft's answer to Pokemon.  It sounds intriguing, and certainly looks beautiful.

That was a Nintendo ad. It has nothing to do with this game, as far as I can tell.

Kameo was an N64 title as well.

Yeah this looks like a cross between Pokemon and Animal Crossing, complete with TV show on Fox and merchandise coming out our ears...

Since they aren't on GT yet...

I am not sure what to think.  This game could be highly addictive in a "I play it in my closet so no one knows" sort of way.

Rare hasn't worked for nintendo since 02, just to let you know. I don't even think this was an "ad" for Nintendo but more of a movie making fun of them...

I just want to see the worms do their love dance. What kind of candy would you have in a pinata worm any way? I can't imagine there's much room in there. Just a candy worm, maybe? A couple of skittles? Rolled hundreds?

Since the narrator says, "Unless they find some other form of entertainment..." I think it's just an ad for the N64 console.
