Cranky Food Friends
Cranky Food Friends was an attempt to localize Puyo Puyo!! Quest, which was a disaster upon its release. The entire cast, down to the Puyos (who had previously been a constant in localizations), were replaced with generic foodstuffs designed by Natalie Butler. The game's dark secret got out quickly, and the game was never properly launched. The controversial reception of the game may have led to the localization of Puyo Puyo Tetris and Puyo Puyo eSports.
