This is Qiqo’s brain… on Critter Crunch


Early on in Critter Crunch’s development, 1/2 of the dynamic art duo responsible for the beautiful visuals you will see in game decided to take Bigg’s and toss him in a mixing bowl with the character designs from some other games… Click here to see more of Qiqo’s ideas.

99% of the art & animation you see in Critter Crunch was created by 2 people: Nick “Qiqo” Stephan and Sylvain Coutouly. Yes, these guys are crazy awesome. Yes, they are sorta like Jesus.

When Qiqo began working on the HD version of Bigg’s, he got so into it that he decided to see how Bigg’s would look if he starred in other awesome games. The result is the following image, which we call “The Wall of Biggs”.

Once we saw Qiqo’s awesome drawings, we couldn’t help but think how amazing it would be to see a Kratos-Biggs (or Biggstos) slaughtering critters with his chain-sword tongue, or Sackboy-Biggs (Sackbiggs) complete with facial animations a la LBP.

While we’ll never get permission to put these ideas in the game, Qiqo’s different concepts still turned out to be super-rad. Click on the image for a nicely high-res version, and stay tuned for more Qiqo & Sylv blog posts.

NOTE TO READERZ: Just to be super clear, we only added Fez in this batch because Fez is super cool, and we love Polytron… not because it is coming to PSN. Maybe we should have added more non- PlayStation characters….. sorry for the confusion! Peace and Love.”

  • Ztuff Says:

    Uh? Is Fez being published on PSN too?

  • splotki5000 Says:

    Nope, Fez is NOT coming to PSN (as far as we know). But we needed an excuse to have a pixel version of Biggs!!

  • Jacob Says:


    Sony released that damn terrible 3.0 update that ruined the PS3, and the only good thing in the update was the Premium Avatars. Here a month in and still no damn avatars. =’

    Like it’s so hard to put up an image for download. They do it with wallpapers all the damn time.

    For some reason I thought CC was coming out today. I am totally upset now that I realize I am a week early. Argh

  • splotki5000 Says:

    It’s only one week away, hoodoo! ONE WEEK!!!!

  • Criier Rock Says:

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make these skins an add-on for a future DLC. Which ever ones you can, which look like all except maybe one (Fez).

  • CritterCrunch Rocks Says:

    I would buy these skins if they made them into DLC.

  • The Brady Brunch Says:

    I think all the designs look good except for the Fez one. The Fez one is just ugly to me. Not really sure why you didn’t choose a different character (or leave it out completely). The Fez game sucks.

  • hh_LOWLOW Says:

    what games are the last two characters from?
    its buggin the hell outta me!!!!
    is the last on infamous?

  • splotki5000 Says:

    hey hey, the last 2 are fez and flOw.

  • Dave Says:

    the 2nd to last is Fez. Not from a PlayStation game, so it broke the pattern.

    The last one is in the style of flOw, a PSN exclusive from thatgamecompany.

  • huh Says:

    What game does the first one come from? :o

  • splotki5000 Says:

    That would be Critter Crunch!

  • Kage56 Says:

    there should be a halo critter crunch!
    or… infamous? jacket seems pretty good on him o_o

  • Ken Edwrds Says:

    You do realize that flOw was a free flash game before Sony decided to start charging money for the PS3 version. That is not an exclusive.
