While the mod is focusing the most on the golden era, there will be a handful of references to more recent shows. (For example, a lot of the planned cars are gonna come from The Looney Tunes Show).
Super happy to hear this, knowing it mostly increases the chances of Daffy's Parade Float
actually making it in (though I understand that would be a pain to model to get the paper mache effect). Would also be rad to see Duck Dodgers' redesign from the 2004 cartoon as well! I feel the original Chunk Jones short outfit would be more fitting overall to the mod's style and what it pays tribute to, but I always preferred the redesign.
I'm sadly not familiar enough with what World of Mayhem offers or even entails (outside of Big Chungus/Fat Bugs Bunny being added to play along with the joke back when that was popular), but it's good to see the models from that are of pretty fair quality.
The idea of potentially paying tribute to the other Looney Tunes TV shows released after the original golden era also had me curious if the model format for Tiny Toons Adventures: Defenders of the Universe
was ever figured out or anything, but sadly no? They'd make some decent models to quickly recolor and slap in as a generic NPC or near the school.
I definitely wouldn't rule out doing a couple of Tag Team Racing
models as well though, on the topic of those. I honestly can't recall if the 'Tourist' NPC is ever extensively recolored or anything to match the areas, so pickings are likely pretty slim in that game.
Whereas the main story missions will only be playable with Bugs or Daffy, street races and bonus missions will always make you play as another character instead, since there's just too many good ones to have them only stuck as NPCs. So there'll possibly be up to 10 different playable characters.
Think that's a great call overall! A lot of characters and it would be unfortunate to be regulated to just a few since the cast kind of makes the shorts. Really interested to see how the Firework mission plays out in practice!
Really any cartoony feeling game. So far the only non-copyright tracks I've sorted out is a Back in Action track and one from Tom & Jerry: War of the Whiskers.
Funny you mention War of the Whiskers since I adore the style they went for in that game and grew up with it as a kid. Fits the aesthetic of the Looney Tunes pretty nicely! Wish I could name more games that had a similar style to their score outside of a really
obvious pick (Cuphead
). That definitely makes fishing up tracks that probably haven't been heard by many more tricky because the quality is so superb in that particular title. The only one I feel is somewhat comparable is Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers (which I believe I mentioned to you before). I think stuff such as the 'Forest' track feels a bit too 'non-silly' to really work, but stuff like Magica's Manor
I think would feel more at home in a Looney Tunes game.
