Rodent Ruckus by vonkoz
Rodent Ruckus
This was the first level I worked on for Tropical Freeze. The level was split in half between myself and artist Reed Ketchem. I took the first half. From the outset I wanted to create this culture of ancient owls that controlled the island in the past. I asked Concept artist Toph Gorham to come up with a cool Owl temple. He whipped up some great concepts and I went to work! This Owl temple became the basis for a lot of structures in the Autumn Heights island and I'm super proud of it. Reed made all of the awesome cheese that the Rats in the level are stealing. Being a Rocket Barrel level it was pretty fun to just concentrate on the background and not have to worry about the player path as much.

I sure am! Any games made by Retro are insta-awesome. I have to admit though, I'm only halfway managed to play part of the first world ^^;. (Blame Mario Kart for this one) I wish you the same for your rad b-day! ;)

Amazing and perfect game by the way! I'm having so much fun completing it 100% with my friend. Can't wait to see a sequel! DKCR needs to be a trilogy! And by the way, did Retro ever considered of including Kiddy Kong or King K. Roll in this game? Thanks!

Wait, YOU worked on DKC Tropical Freeze? That's AWESOME!!! :D I'm playing it right now! It's so challenging. BUT SO PRETTY! I love ALL the visual designs! Everything is so detailed and polished and everything! REALLY great work! Y'all did an awesome job! I hope there will be a third DKC game made RetroStudios so there can be a trilogy!
