We took on Donkey Kong Country for the SNES.

Donkey Kong Country is a 1994 platforming video game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
It was first released in November 1994, and under the name Super Donkey Kong ã‚¹ãƒ¼ãƒ‘ãƒ¼ãƒ‰ãƒ³ã‚ãƒ¼ã‚³ãƒ³ã‚° SÅ«pÄ DonkÄ« Kongu? in Japan.
The game was later rereleased for the Game Boy Color 2000, Game Boy Advance 2003, Wii Virtual Console 2007, Wii U Virtual Console 2014, and New Nintendo 3DS 2016 with a perfect pixel mode.
The game is set on Donkey Kong Island and centres around Donkey Kong and his nephew Diddy Kong, who must recover their stolen hoard of bananas from King K.
Rool and the Kremlings.
Development of the game first began shortly after Rares Tim and Chris Stamper ran experiments with a Silicon Graphics workstation, rendering realistic 3D sprites.
Nintendo became interested in Rares work and soon acquired 49 of the company which culminated in the production of a new title using Alias and SGI technology for the SNES console.
The Stamper brothers expressed an interest to create a standalone Donkey Kong game, and assembled a team of 12 to work on the game over an 18month development cycle.
Donkey Kong Country is the first Donkey Kong game that was not produced or directed by Shigeru Miyamoto, the characters original creator.
It was directed by Tim Stamper instead, although Miyamoto was still involved with the project.
Following an intense marketing campaign, Donkey Kong Country received critical acclaim and more than nine million copies were sold worldwide, making it the secondbestselling SNES game.
Donkey Kong, after investigating his Kongs Banana Hoard, located just below his home, and discovering that his banana hoard has disappeared, embarks on a journey to recover it from King K.
