David Crane, best known for co-founding Activision and designing and programming such games as Laser Blast, Pitfall, Ghostbusters and Little Computer People, is back in the saddle again. In conjuncture with Pitfall’s 30th anniversary, Crane would like to create a modern, 2D “Pitfall-esque” adventure game titled “Jungle Adventure.”
Unfortunately he can’t call it “Pitfall 3” because he doesn’t own the rights to the name. However, based on some of the conceptual art Crane has posted on the project’s website, I think you can see Pitfall’s influence.
For more information about the game, check out the Jungle Adventure Kickstarter Page and the Jungle Venture website. Crane is looking to raise $900k to fund the game. If only Pitfall Harry had saved a few of those treasures he found over the years!
