2K is saying that the lack of skin tone choices in Carnival Games was "honestly --  a complete oversight." The game, developed by Cat Daddy back in 2006 and 2007, was released exclusively on the Wii and has since made popular the arcade-like mini-game style of some games.

It did decent with critics and in sales, but the character selection in the game only ran a small gamut of pale white all the way to paler white. After outcry from some gamers, 2K has made up for the gaffe by adding a color slider in the DS version and they assure that Carnival Games 2 will feature all of the various skin colors available on our planet currently.

In Carnival Games: Mini Golf, dropping in September 2008, the user will be able to choose from 12 different skin tones in a continuing effort to become racially sensitive.

Carnival Games 2, the delayed sequel to Carnival Games, mini-game compendium played by moms everywhere, will be developed by Cat Daddy and published by 2K. A release date has not been set.
