Christopher "Chris" Seavor (born 1968[1] in the United Kingdom) is a British game designer, artist and voice actor who has done work on several video games, particularly in the context of an artist. Seavor is perhaps most famous for his work on the Conker series, as the project leader of Bad Fur Day and its remake, as well as providing the voice acting for most of the characters.


Seavor began his career with Rare as a Graphic Designer in January 1994, working on backgrounds, effects, and the logo for the Killer Instinct series of fighter games.[2] He inherited and reworked the Conker franchise in an attempt to draw it away from the other Rare title Dream, which eventually became Banjo-Kazooie.

Chris was the project leader and game designer on both Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded. He co-wrote the screenplay with Robin Beanland, worked as a background and layout artist, helped with some additional graphics, and voiced almost all male characters on Conker's Bad Fur Day. Additionally, he was a VA (alongside Rare's Steve Malpass) in Super Smash Bros. Melee. He supplied the voices of Slippy Toad and Peppy Hare in both Melee and Star Fox Adventures. He enjoys voicing antagonists for Rare, providing voices for Gruntilda in Banjo-Kazooie and Baron Von Ghoul in Grabbed by the Ghoulies.[3]

In late 2012, he stated in his Twitter that he was fired from Rare officially because of "differing opinions and career goals".[4] He now lives in Packington.

In 2013, he created a YouTube channel called "Conker King"[5] and started up a "Director's Commentary" of Conker's Bad Fur Day, along with other people who worked on it, revealing various behind the scenes information about the game and other Rare titles.

Chris Seavor is currently employed at his own independent game studio, Gory Detail Limited where he has designed and worked on Parashoot Stan for Apple iOS and Android. At the moment he is designing and working on The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, a darkly themed platformer game for the Wii U and 3DS systems.

Seavor will reprise his role as the voice of Conker in the video game Project Spark.
