Description: Uniracers (known as Unirally in the UK) was co-developed by Nintendo and DMA Design. The game was the cause of the infamous lawsuit between Pixar and Nintendo in the mid 1990s. Pixar sued Nintendo/DMA Design over the design of the unicycle claiming it resembled an early computer generated short film Pixar created in 1988. Pixar subsequently won the lawsuit and Nintendo was forced to pull Uniracers from shelves and stop production, only printing 300,000 copies of the game. The game was certainly destined to become a best selling, player's choice title, but nevertheless, the game remains and cult favourite amongst retro gamers for its fast and trick-oriented gameplay. DMA Design would go on to later become the powerhouse studio, Rockstar North, the creators of the Grand Theft Auto series!
NOTE: the art itself was digitally manipulated on the published cover, but this painting remains the only one created for the game box cover. The upper track artwork was digitally coloured and inserted from line art on vellum, which accompanies the painting.
