"Wow... Tiny Toons... that's a LONG time ago now.
I worked as a contract pixel artist on backgrounds. Being a
contractor, i was not involved with much of the decision making, nor
was I necessarily informed of various production decisions.I remember
the game artwork was only just beginning, not very far along, and the
project died. I'm not really certain why, but during my career as a
computer games artist, I'd say maybe 70-80% of the titles I was
involved with were cancelled at some point.
IIRC, we were using something called the TUME tile editor. Another
in-house-developed tile-based artwork program. Some were better than
I was a bit more bummed about this cancellation than many others, as I
was a fan of Tiny Toons, Wacko, Yakko and Dot (and -big- fan of Pinky
& the Brain). The game was centered wholly on W, Y & D. I do believe
that part of the reason the title was canned was the declining
popularity of the cartoon, considering that a development cycle can be
a year, the game would not be ready soon enough. I have to say now,
decades later, it was probably sound financial reasoning.
That's about as much as I can easily recall. I was only involved in
backgrounds; the title was shelved relatively early on; and it was Yet
Another Tile Editor (and I don't remember much about the workings).
I hope this is helpful. And, I'm *amazed* that I get pings from
researchers/afficionados such as yourself all these many, many years
