Epic Mickey Revealed, Warren Spector Speaks

It should come as little surprise that Warren Spector and his Junction Point development studio have been working on Epic Mickey, a game half-revealed by rumour, concept art and sparse details. But now it's official.

Disney's Epic Mickey is also the subject of the latest issue of GameInformer magazine, which should appear in subscribers' mailboxes starting next week.

The Wii game, said to be a Mickey Mouse platformer that involves the painting and erasing of levels, a struggle by Disney's lower caste of characters to dethrone the mouse.

Based on the cover art from the latest GI, it looks that, if anything, Spector and crew have managed to create something visually intriguing, with the rumoured gameplay mechanics only slightly less interesting.

GI also has a video interview with Spector up, in which he talks about his love for things Mickey Mouse. It's light on actual Epic Mickey game details, but heavy on Spector face time.

    That big shadow guy looks suspiciously like Oogie Boogie...

      It does... I hope it isn't though.

      I mean, I LOVE Nightmare, but I thought this was just a new, dark look on normal Disney. Not dark characters from already dark movies.

      Also, no hannah montana. If so, may my wii scratch my eyes out.

    That artwork is getting me excited about Alice 2

    How long until someone starts taking the mickey out of it? *bu-dum-tish*
