[Video Game] Epic Mickey
« on: July 30, 2009, 04:23:19 PM »
Found this on my Pixar Forum...

Epic Mickey is a new video game being published by Junction Studios (which it owned by Disney) and is being developed by Warren Spector of Deus Ex fame. Here is some concept art.






More Screenshots and Concept Art Here

At the moment unofficially announced for the Wii... There is a rather freaky Goofy character in it... which I will say will be giving me nightmares for a while...

Sorry if the Pics are to big... I'm not sure how to resize them...

Looks very odd indeed.  Kinda reminds me of Terminator Salvation, especially with the weird vehicles.

Any idea what the plot of this will be about?  Or even what type of game this is?  Or will it be yet another Disney Wii exclusive?  (honestly it's annoying me now, not as much Disney but Nintendo, they've lost their way and forgot about the hardcore gamer which help make them famous.  All they care about now is family games)

From the artwork and the title, I guessing that its gonna be something in a similar vein to Final Fantast VII. Although if its for the Wii, it ain't gonna be as big and the graphics will look nothing like the concept artwork (probably more like Mickey's Clubhouse)

Found this;

Quote
Internet Detectives have sniffed out a few leads on the next project from legendary game designer Warren Spector, and following those has unraveled a huge stack of concept artwork for a Wii game in collaboration with Disney that’s been dubbed “Epic Mickey.”

The designer responsible for the prescient first-person RPGs System Shock and Deus Ex now heads his own studio, Junction Point, in Austin, TX. Spector sold the studio to Disney in 2007 and stated in interviews that he was designing the kind of project that was only possible by working for the Mickey Mouse House.

Sure enough, concept art floating around the Internet looks like Junction Point is working on a game starring the iconic character. What’s more, artist portfolios referring to a code name of “Epic Mickey” corroborate a report from game site Gamasutra that surfaced last year and described the game as “steampunk.”

The concept images that have hit the Web show famous Disney characters, retro-future steam-powered machinery, and epic qualities all at once. Check out the render above: it’s all of Disney World’s famous EPCOT Center, albeit broken, floating on a steam ship, with nothing more than a pair of famous round ears at the bow. Other sketches show apocalyptic wastelands shaped out of riveted metal, a twisted Goofy figure with tattered clothes and empty eye sockets, and the famous Disney castle stuck atop a precipitous spire.

As many gamers would surmise from a game featuring Disney characters front and center, “Epic Mickey” may be headed for the Wii. Artist Tony Pulham lists the game on his online resume as in development for Nintendo’s remote-waggling wonder box and makes no mention of any other platform.

Last year, Gamasutra declared “Epic Mickey” to be a platformer. While there has yet to be any corroboration of that claim, the rest of that site’s report has held up through the revelation of these concept art galleries.

Upon selling his studio to Disney, Spector joked that his fans would label him a “sell-out” once his game was revealed to the public. But with artwork this unconventional, such a derogatory word may be the last thing on gamers’ minds once the covers come all the way off “Epic Mickey.”

Platformer then?

Also yeah your right PD.  It's Wii so the graphics wont be anywhere near the concept art.

When I first heard about it earlier this year I thought it would be a great game. Steampunk trains, blimps and gadgets etc. along with mickey mouse, but this looks to be very dark and eerie. I won't be watching trailers let alone playing it for fear of it scarring the image of Disney I have.

:shock: This. Looks. AWESOME! It definatly looks like my cup of tea.

:P I don't know where you get the impression of it being similiar to Final Fantasy VII though Pete. That's my fave game of all time, and I fail to see the resemblence.

This looks quite dark for Disney. I'll keep an eye on this planned game.

This does look like an absolutely awesome game. I do like my Disney embracing the dark side.

Fingers crossed that we will be seeing this on PS3/360.  Would love to see the game to actually look like that impressive concept art (which the Wii simply won't do).
