Voodoo Shop Triviata

Madam Charmaine's voodoo shop serves as the setting for the game's front end in Voodoo Vince. After flying through the front window after the sundry logo screens, most users probably zoom to the crystal ball to continue their game, but using the joystick will take the camera from one corner of the shop to another. If you look in the background, you'll see some pretty silly things.

Before the level artists went to work filling the shop with a lot of nifty Voodoo clutter, Doug Williams came up with a whole lot of ideas for various decor items. Here are some of his funnier ideas.

I think everyone needs a pickled businessman in a jar. Not everything made it into the game. I know the Zombie Flakes, the carton of chicken milk and the poor little trapped bug are pretty easy to see in the background at different spots around the final version of the shop. The saucy "Men of Voodoo" video cassette didn't, but there's an idea waiting to happen if I've ever seen one.
