ChowHound influences

There were various influences that I thought of when designing the game’s ‘look and feel’. Elements of old Warner Bros. cartoons, the ‘Merry Melodies’ and Tom & Jerry toons were a starting point.

Eyvind Earle was a big influence when it came to the background design. His undulating landscapes often filled with mists, shadows and stylised canopies.

Grant Wood was another influence on the look of the trees and shrubbery. A ‘cartoonesque’ parody of plants.
