Maximum Power Up Podcast - Episode 25: Rare with Kev Bayliss

MPU Ep25 Rare 670x447

Rare were one of the biggest companies for Nintendo in the SNES and N64 era. From Killer Instinct and Donkey Kong Country on the 16bit giant to Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie and many more on the N64, Rare had hit after hit.

In this episode we interview Kev Bayliss, ex Rare graphic artist who worked at the company from 1987-2005 making games on the NES, SNES, N64 and X Box 360 including Killer Instinct, Battletoads and many more. After a break from the industry Kev has returned to it and now works for Playtonic and is working on the fantastic looking Yooka-Laylee with other ex Rare staff. Kev discusses starting out in the industry from the early days of Rare with the Stampers, Nintendo wanting Rare to help relaunch Donkey Kong and goes all the way upto Microsoft buying the company.

We hope you enjoy the episode and if possible please leave us an iTunes review or rating as everyone helps the show grow.
