Dr. Puzz and Dr. Quack

Postby rocho » Fri May 20, 2016 6:44 pm

What are your thoughts about this 2 characters?

I would say Dr. Puzz has a bit to much human look in her face but like the idea of the way the gold fish was inserted!

And how both Doctors use some sort of liquid container to enhance facilitate their interactions with the world.

Dr Puzz


Dr Quack


I agree that when I looked at Puzz's face I was mildly disturbed how human she looked. She really does creep me out a bit (Google 'uncanny valley'). But I think she also looks cute; I'll have to see her in-game to decide whether I really like the human face, but I'm sure I will. Humba was a human too, which may seem really out of place in the Banjo universe, but it wasn't.

Edit: reminds me of... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QU-Kf7ZIYI

I really like Dr. Quack, but Dr. Puzz creeps me out a bit.

Maybe no nose would be better, a bit like the octopus in Finding Nemo: http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/dis ... 0110023448

But actually the Finding Nemo octopus also creeps me out. Maybe I just have an irrational fear of pink octopi.

What's that beneath Dr. Puzz? A body suit?

Dr. Quack -- some time ago Steverson stated his banner was part of concept art he did for a character. I always assumed the character would be standing next to the vat! As dotexe notes in the other topic, the vat is actually on Dr. Quacks head

I think Dr. Puzz is my favorite of the side characters so far. I look at her and I can feel that this is a game with those bizzaro quirky vibes Banjo had, whereas someone like Dr. Quack could fit in any cartoony game really. Her design is oddly unique, and a small part of me feels like she's right there with Trowser in terms of feeling the most like a Banjoey character. I can't quite explain why; it's more obvious with Trowser.

I also dont like how human Puzz looks. Doesn't suit the game style.

I like the look of Dr Quack but can't stand the name. Sounds like it belongs in a kids tv show aimed at toddlers.

I think Dr. Quack is probably a parody of people calling bad doctors "quacks".

Now that it's been mentioned, she does look strange / off. But I like where it's going...

Somebody om Dkvine decide Dr. quack should be called Dr. Quackpot.

This needs to happen! Change his name playtonic!

I guess Dr. Puzz is our Mumbo for this game... And Dr. Quack is Klungo, maybe? Though I get the impression he's not truly loyal to Capital B... Either way, he intrigues me the most.

Gosh, I'm just so curious about all these characters!

quack
[kwak]

noun
1.
a fraudulent or ignorant pretender to medical skill.
2.
a person who pretends, professionally or publicly, to skill, knowledge, or qualifications he or she does not possess; a charlatan.


His name is a paradox. It's perfect! Or should I say "paraducks."

Aren't some doctors called quacks, for some reason?

Yes like Dr Phil, or Dr Atkins, or "Dr" Oprah.

Anyways -- we definitely need to see more of these two. Would love to see them in-game, or the original character artwork!

Note:
Dr. Quack is in an old gum ball machine. Not sure if there's some gag I'm missing but it's pretty amusing.

Dr. Puzz has a body with a skull shirt under her white coat ... a nice nod, considering her assuming Mumbo's role!
