Cartoon / anime concept

Characters' certain personal traits are greatly enhanced or simplified.


The first video game about Caricature was released in 1993.

Valve, Telltale Games and Klei Entertainment has published most of these games

This is distinguishable from regular cartoon styles by the simple fact that character traits are exaggerated, not only the general style. If all humans share the same or share similar points of exaggeration, then we can consider it to be simply cartoon, while when separate characters (of same species/race) have wildly differing looks despite their existing similarities is caricature.
