Infamous began as a cartoonish game inspired by Animal Crossing

"The original idea for Infamous, believe it or not, was that it was kind of Animal Crossing, but you were a superhero," Zimmerman said. Instead of the series established gritty overtones, Infamous’ early concepts were a more cartoonish undertaking from the studio behind the Sly Cooper series. An early pitch, for example, included balloon-stealing purple gorillas.
"We worked on that for about a year in that direction," he said. "So much more stylized, much more cartoony than what you end up seeing. We worked hard to see if we could make that work."
