Excuse me for bumping the topic. I was just curious about sharing some insight on my part of the matter.
I was one of those who were in love with the game when we got our first glimpse of the concept art. And I still love the idea, admittedly. When the Game Informer article came about, it was noticeably toned down, but it still managed its fewer scares, and the gameplay was promised to be something spectacular. Too bad I couldn't really say that when I played the game and the only level and boss battle I really felt were at the quality they should have been was the Petetronic boss battle seeing as it is one of the few times you're actually fighting a boss, and the boss happens to be able to challenge you (plus, I'm a sucker for Tron based gameplay). Everything else was a letdown, despite a great visual style, awe-inspiring soundtrack, and really nice writing, despite the fact that Spector's motto for gamers to tell the story with developers seems lost in the garbage disposal at Disney.
What I came to talk about though, was if this had been a movie instead. Or instead of being a Disney exclusive game, this could have been a Roger Rabbit game with Toon Town and the collaboration of Warner Bros., Disney, Universal, Fox, etc. etc. and they decided to actually make this a big game featuring truly forgotten toons, a big mystery/horror plot, and an Eldritch Abomination bigger than the massive stars in animated film history. Imagine if this had been a film/game companion to Roger Rabbit in a Mickey Mouse focused story in Toon Town. They would have been able to get away with the badass concepts we saw earlier. Furthermore, they'd be able to fully detail the story of losing Oswald to Universal, with familiar faces like Casper and Woody Woodpecker sayign things like, "You're one of us, now, OZZY BOY!" On second thought, I think Warren might have been thinking of something like this but Disney might not have even let him go through with such a thing. It depends... We have one of the concept artists on deviantArt. It will be best to ask him if this might have been thought of at one time.
But really. Just think. This could have been something far larger than originally planned.
