Our hero Drew Blanc (played by Christopher Lloyd) is the animator behind the wildly successful Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun Show but he dreams of working on other projects. One day he’s sucked through his television and wakes up in a cartoon world filled with his own animated creations, and they’re under threat by the evil Count Nefarious (voiced by Tim Curry) who’s turning then into evil opposites of themselves (e.g. a nice cow gets turned into a BDSM-cow in leather bondage gear). With the help of his fondest creation, Flux Wildly (voiced by Dan ‘Homer Simpson’ Castellanetta) Drew sets out to save the day.
The project began in October '93 and was completed over three years later in November '96. The total cost of production: over $8 million. The animation was produced at unnecessarily high levels of sophistication, exceeding even Disney movie quality. However, only 35% of this animation made it into the finished game. The game's engine was based off of Westwood's Kyrandia series' engine, and required the project's team to spend an extra 18 months ironing out bugs and glitches.
