A Look Inside Epic Mickey

Epic Mickey

I know you think you're too old, cool and cynical to enjoy Disney. I thought the same thing, until a few month ago when I took advantage of a free pass to Disneyland and had my hard-fought bitterness absolutely obliterated by the magic of the happiest place on earth. I have a feeling the upcoming Wii game Epic Mickey will do the same for my "mature" video gaming tastes. Yes, it's a Wii game. Yes, it's a Disney game, but it sounds freakin' amazing!

Although not much about the plot has been released, the rumor is it concerns Mickey slipping into a messed-up alternative, steampunk Disney-verse where the lower-caste Disney characters are trying to take him out as head of the Disney empire. Take a look at creeped-out, robo-Donald above! Nightmare!

The November 2009 issue of Game Informer has a bunch of details and concept art, and from the looks of this game, Epic Mickey will, in fact, be epic. According to the game's designer, Warren Spector,"We’re creating a world where we have to have this painted, bright, cartoony, puffy marshmallow look side-by-side with this gray, blasted, dark, twisted, pointy, inert look.” Yeah. I could get into that.

Anyway, follow the "Source" link for an in-depth discussion of Epic Mickey's style and a lot of epic concept art.
