Rare has been in the news a fair bit lately, which is testament to their legacy in the industry and staying power. Say what you want about where they ended up, the British developer holds a special place in the annals of game development history, and it seems some of the cats who work, or worked, there, feel the same way.

A Twitter account comprised of former team members who worked on the Banjo-Tooie title has launched a vocal campaign to fans to get behind the idea of development of a "spiritual successor" to Banjo-Tooie that wouldn't simply be a knock off of the original but "something new".

"Let's make the spiritual successor to Banjo-Tooie! Core members of the original team are ready to go," reads one Tweet. "All we need is your support. So join us today!"

"And yes, I'm thinking 3D platformer," read another.

Eurogamer also noted that the development collective would be happy to take their idea down the Kickstarter route, with the game likely to be built using the Unity SDK.

"Unity will probably be perfect for our spiritual successor. I'm thinking keeping level of detail and googly eyes close to the original," they said.

While the likelihood of Rare ever coming back to strength is written all throughout their namesake, it's great to know that there are still members from that era so many loved willing to have another crack at it. Would you get behind any such project?

Why doesn't some has-been developer try to crowd fund a revival of something I actually enjoyed?

I'd love to see a revival of Jet Force Gemini - I fricking loved that game!
