Since I won’t be able to play Paper Mario: Color Splash (apparently even our version is spelled that way) for at least another two months, I haven’t been too worried about spoilers.
There’s a mini-game where you play Rock Paper Scissors and the champion is known as the Rock Paper Wizard.
Sadly this fellow is based on concept art and the final design used is, I think, far inferior.
So I was watching a Mario Maker video when it occurred to me that the phrase “P-Switch” sounds quite a lot like “Pizza Witch” and so that was my evenings activity tied up.
I also felt it would be an appropriate way to pay tribute to Shenaniganza and his excellent Witches series by attempting to predict how he would have done it.
The lowest rung on Professor Fandango’s Ladder of Robots ™, the diminutive humanoids known as Dogsbodys fulfill all manner of utilities around the lab including construction, maintenance and custodial duties.
Since Professor Fandango’s scenario takes a lot of inspiration from video game villains like Doctors Eggman and Wily I was always wondering what the lowly “Goomba” robot would be. Many years ago it was supposed to be the Prime-8s but I wasn’t utilising them at all which was why they were condensed down into a single character. Then I tried to fill the gap with the Junkos: www.deviantart.com/art/INTRODU… but they were just far too contrived and never had a huge amount of utility. Now, I can see how these guys might seem a little Minion-esque, and I do actually like the Minions but there was actually no inspiration there. In fact, it was watching Aaron Paul prance around in a yellow jumpsuit in Breaking Bad that inspired this design, and I like it!
