    The game was probably canned by Take-Two(the game was on Telstar’s “coming soon” catalogue at the time of Take-Two acquisition), because of the game’s similarity to Monkey Hero, another Take-Two game.

    Stoo interviewed on RVG a while back:


    Of all the games you were involved in which was the hardest to create art and graphics for and why?


    Joe Blow. We started the project as a 2D overhead action puzzle game but part of the deal upon signing to Telstar was that we redesign the concept as a 3D platform game using a newly developed 3D engine for the PC and Playstation we were at the time working on.

    (I shall be uploading lots of Joe Blow and Earlier DJ Fresh stuff in 2015 as I plan to do a proper archive of it)
