There is an EXCELLENT feature article in the new Game Informer magazine that details the story & gameplay of the upcoming “Epic Mickey” video game for Wii. I know when a lot of people first saw the art that leaked for this game hardcore Disney lovers were a little critical of it’s dark & menacing appearance. I think if everyone reads the article you may get a more appreciative view of it. I REALLY disagreed with two statements made by game creator Warren Spector in the article but his vast knowledge & appreciation for Mickey Mouse and Disney animation helps me to accept his viewpoint. VERY interesting concept for a game & the gameplay sounds great. Even if you aren’t a big gamer (like me) you may want to check it out or at least read the article because it sounds like Disney’s intent with pushing this video game may be to slightly reinvent the supposedly dormant Mickey persona. Interesting stuff!
I didn’t find the magazine article on-line but Game Informer Magazine does have an “Epic Mickey Hub” you can visit to see art, hear music, watch videos, etc.
