According to the portfolio
of former Rare
senior graphic designer Sergey Rakhmanov, the developer was once working on what may have been a very radical departure for Kameo 2
. Rakhmanov's resume mentions the canceled project and includes images of a decidedly non-
cartoony rendering of Kameo herself.
Given the undeniably adorable status of the first Kameo,
an Xbox 360 launch title, it seems unlikely that Rare was actually considering such a drastic change for its sequel. The character model may simply represent the daydreams of an imaginative artist. Either way, it's fun to envision a grittier take on the series.
