I pitched this idea for a game to a couple of guys at work. I thought it'd be a great game to attract the people who are too cool for Disney, yet harbor a secret love for the mouse. The object of the game would be to pick a Disney character as your avatar and then slowly build up your mech, gladitorial combat being the purpose. Alas, it never made it out of my office.
On our honey moon, my wife and I noticed how appealing the Disney cruise ship looked compared to the Carnival ship that we were on. I find it interesting to see how the "Disney Aesthetic" gets applied to various objects and how it triggers feelings of familiarity and nostalgia.
So why not giant robots?
