Default Spector's "Epic Mickey" Is For The Wii



Quote:
Game designer Warren Spector, of Thief, Deus Ex and System Shock fame, may have a new muse in Mickey Mouse. A report from Gamasutra says Spector's working on a "steampunk"-styled game currently codenamed Epic Mickey.

Gamasutra writes that it has seen concept art and other details on the title, now in development at Spector's own Junction Point Studios, which was acquired by Disney in 2007. Their description of the environmental artwork certainly sounds in line with Spector's style.

As the report points out, EGM's Quartermann-penned rumor column placed Spector on a Disney licensed platformer starring Mickey Mouse earlier this year.

Scoff if you want at the concept of Spector squandering his talent on a Mickey Mouse game, but go play Castle of Illusion for the Genesis before you do so.
Needless to say, I'm excited. I love Disney. I'm a self professed fanboy of their work. I'm speculating over the Game Informer cover. It looks like it might borrow from Okami, and have a "painting" mechanic.

We could, of course, use this time to state the disappointment in it being a Wii exclusive, but I don't care, I just want to see more of it. The concept is really interesting.

More interesting images...

I'm not much of a mickey fan, but the concept art and talent behind this have me intrigued.

And I'm glad whenever the Wii gets a 3rd party exclusive that's more than just shovelware, hopefully this one sells better than most have so far.

well i was excited, then I read this:

The cover story of the publication's November issue confirms the Junction Point-developed game, which is apparently keeping the "Epic Mickey" codename as its actual title, as being a single-player Wii exclusive shipping next fall.

Disappointing that it's Wii only, I was hoping for some nice high defness. I wonder if this means that Kingdom Hearts is dead?
