It's weird, it's like someone doing a 3D claymation in CG on computers. They should have just used clay but then that probably costs way too much time/money. It's a shame. This is why we'll never ever get proper 2D old disney era animation again. It's always an imitation.

Here's a perfect example. It's really well done, and woukd be good for distant shots of Homer.

 

 

But the temptation to just have him move according to these set moves is too great, and you won't get that great variett of classic Simpsons. It'll look neat and dull, like Family Guy.

Animated by slave labourers in Kilkenny who have really done some excellent work.

 

Cartoon Saloon are based there, aren't they? Are they involved with this, or are there other studios in that area's animation community?

I see what you're getting at. It looks alright but doesn't quite capture the look they nailed in the game. It felt a little too clean, if that's the word.

They're not. Lighthouse Studios are. They are connected to Mercury Studios in Canada that produce Tangled and the like for Disney. All Toon Boom stuff.

 

The Saloon, as a rule, don't do service animation stuff. They're more a prestige studio. They do work with Dog Ears Studio in NI though.

They could fake it in Comp but it's not in the design doc.

Desperately needs the grain, aberration and faded palette from the game, looks far too clean.

 

I know some of the comps on it. It does have grain, but they had to dial down the aberration and fading (even though it's still there) as it looked a little unappealing and too old-timey.

To be fair I was watching a compressed h264 on my phone, I should know better.

Something feels a bit off to me when a game that lifts its aesthetic wholesale from some old cartoons gets it's own cartoon show.  Like some kind of IP laundering scheme.

 

It would be like making an action movie of Uncharted. 

 

Oh.
