When I went to visit Rare's Studio and check out Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise for the DS, one couldn't help but consider the future of the franchise. VP is an incredibly original and inventive IP, one that most definitely deserves a long future, but I realized there was a crucial flaw in the game -- Rare can only continue the series for as long as they can think of animal/candy wordplay.

Or can they?

As this musing reached its climactic peak, I imagined the bleakest future possible, a future where Rare had run out of candy portmanteaus and had to move onto chemical substances. In order to help my pals at Rare, I have taken it upon myself to draw up their concept art ... concept art from Hell ... and design creatures for the latest installment in the franchise -- Viva Piñarcotics!
