Wacky Worlds, also titled Wacky Worlds Creativity Studio on the cover, is a Sega Mega Drive paint program developed by Headgames and published by Sega. Released in late 1994 to warm reception, it is the spiritual sequel to Art Alive!.

Gameplay

Wacky Worlds is a childrens-oriented software toy with sandbox-like diorama creation. After selecting one of six worlds, interactivity mainly consists of placing animated stamps of various cartoon characters (including some from Sonic the Hedgehog) against a variety of backdrops to create an intended scene. Players can further choose from a library of background music to accompany their creations.

Stamps can interact with each other, such as eating other stamps, and their animations can be toggled on command. The order in which stamps animate can also be altered, allowing scenes to animate to a certain timing.

History

Wacky Worlds was the first game released under Sega of America’s childrens-oriented label Sega Club.

Development

During production, the game was known by the working title Creative Antics.
