Disaster: Day Of Crisis Nearing Completion

They're Tiny, They're Toony, Their Jaguar Game Was Puny

Tiny Toon Adventures Back when TV's Tiny Toon Adventures was moderately popular Konami acquired the rights to produce video games based on the series, leading to several various releases for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES, Sega Genesis, and even the Game Boy.  However, after Konami finished with the property Atari picked up the license and began work on a Tiny Toons game for the Atari Jaguar.  The game was never finished due to the demise of the console, but now images and production sketches from the defunct game have appeared online over at Platypus Comix.

The company that was working on this title posted images from what had been completed on their website, which stayed there until their demise. Before that, however, in 1997 somebody saved all those images to his hard drive. Then in 2006 he agreed to donate the images to my site. Here, now, are the title screens, sprites and design blueprints for this vaporware piece of [Tiny Toons] history.

These images certainly look sharp enough to make for a visually appealing game, but it's anybody's guess how the gameplay handled.  Check out the blueprint for Plucky Duck's level, for instance.  That's one heck of a sewer system in need of exploration.  After Atari lost momentum the Tiny Toons license bounced around between several different companies, resulting in games for the Sony PlayStation and Game Boy Advance.  So where does the license reside today?  Treasure may still hold the rights, as the company was working on another game in the series, Defenders of the Looniverse, for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube.  Unfortunately, it has been cancelled as well.

And now this entry's done.
