Conker’s Bad Fur Day fan fundraiser hopes to release uncut version

Tuesday, 7th May 2013 13:49 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Conker’s Bad Fur Day, one of favorite games off all time, is getting new life of sorts thanks to a fan-driven fundraiser which wishes to release the uncut beta version of the game.

The version will be released as a downloadable ROM image, and will contain the uncut adventures the intrepid squirrel partook in – meaning it will not contain the cuts made by Nintendo for N64 nor the extra cuts Microsoft made which pretty much ruined the humor of the game – in my opinion.

Debug footage shown over on Past to Present Online shows one scene Nintendo has Rare censor: it shows Tediz performing surgery on a live squirrel soldier.

According to the fan-fundraiser creator, Borman, the game will be released in an ETCS demo build, and a second debug version, and should the funding goal of $2,500 be met – he will release PAL and NTSC beta versions of Perfect Dark, Rare’s other gem from the same era.

    It isn’t a “fan version,” they are legitimate early builds :) And SupaKupa, no one donated anything today.

    Is this legal? Charging money for pirated software.

    JPickford, it is how most prototype games get out there.

    Leaking of the code is probably not illegal (in a criminal sense) it’s a straightforward breach of copyright.

    Similarly, charging for the physical demo cart is probably ok (depending how the collector acquired it).

    But charging money to release the code online looks like commercial piracy which is a criminal offence.
