    Re: Epic Mickey Looking More Real, More Amazing

    GWA... I want this game so bad... Hopefully, I'll be able to have a Wii by Christmas...

    Anyway, I can totally see why this would only be for the Wii, and for more then just the tools (the original Okami game pulled it off without the Wii). It seems that Nintendo and Disney share a lot of goals, as far as being family friendly. I'd actually like to see Disney and Nintendo pair up one day... Of course, that's just a dream...

    I agree with the Joystix article. That would be awesome if you run into Captain EO cast members or even the spider-lady. LOL

    Oswald is NOT a villain! The fact that they have made him one now has me mad at Disney, and has turned me off from this game. Oswald is a very lovable character, and shouldn't be receiving this kind of treatment.

    Re: Epic Mickey Looking More Real, More Amazing

    I've seen a new article in this month's Game Informer on Epic Mickey, and might I say it looks awesome, and the shape it's taking in my opinion is outstanding. To quote Warren Spector the innovative game designer behind this game, "Disney scared the pants off me when I was a little kid. Disney needs to scare kids."

    The design of it, and scope of it, are interesting. It's like Tim Burton and Walt Disney combined their dreams and this was the result. It has a new design for Mickey Mouse, one that harkens back to his beginning cartoon adventures. And this picture below sums up the game quite nicely.


    The story centers around a world created by the sorcerer Yensid in which the old and forgotten attractions / characters in the Disney library go to when they are no longer needed. Accidentally however, the world is invaded by the Phantom Blot and what was intended to be a beautiful restful place became a warped version of the Magic Kingdom.

    It's here that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit had been since it's creation, he was the first inhabitant. As the article quotes Warren Spector, "Walt Disney created Mickey to replace Oswald." And so the story goes, two brothers, one with the success and fame, the other forgotten by their "father."

    In the game you control Mickey who wields a paint brush, and you must travel thru the now warped kingdom and in the process you decide to be endlessly helpful to the inhabitants or focused on your own agenda (as the article describes, you as Mickey can be "the Scrapper" or "the Hero"). Depending on your decisions the world will reflect your actions and so Mickey will become more or less colorful depending on your chosen path.

    "This is probably impossible, we're probably going to fail. I'm in."
    --Warren Spector on Reinventing Mickey Mouse

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post scans from the magazine. Kinda knew to the whole forum stuff, heh heh.

    From the look of things, Oswald isn't looking to be so much as a villain as much as a bitter rival in this game. You know, a little brother stealing fame and glory from his older brother, leaving said older brother abandoned. To those familar with the Metal Gear Solid series, this idea should sound familiar. Anyways, I predict that Mickey and Oswald will end up working together to take on the true villain by the end of this game, Ink Blot.

    Or Oswald will have your generic anime cliche of "once a villian now a good guy after being defeated by the main character" moment. Which I would welcome.

    Re: Epic Mickey Looking More Real, More Amazing

    this game, as I said in my last post her, looks epic! the art of the game does look steampunk-y and what I think is cool, Disney is using thier forgotten rides and making them enemys, although I may will have to wait until monday for the magazine( DARNET!) *sigh*
    In the game you control Mickey who wields a paint brush, and you must travel thru the now warped kingdom and in the process you decide to be endlessly helpful to the inhabitants or focused on your own agenda (as the article describes, you as Mickey can be "the Scrapper" or "the Hero").

    Everything I've read so far is pointing towards either Oswald or Phantom Blot. I'd be very surprised if GameInformer spoiled who the REAL baddy is, as that isn't their style.

    Re: Epic Mickey Looking More Real, More Amazing

    This is why you shouldn't get so excited about concept art: http://cache.gawker.com/assets/image...8/original.jpg
    (Pic from here)

    [Note: It's from the magazine. I have a subscription to GameInformer but don't have the issue yet]

    Concept art is great and all, but it's usually really out-there and gets toned down for the actual game. I think they at least did something interesting with the lighting, otherwise it's not really different from Kingdom Hearts graphics except designs.

    Well, if you're comparing that to the concept art that I think you are, that's not really very fair since the concept art is for an entirely different area.



    THIS is the concept art for the area that's featured in the magazine.

    But yeah, concept art should never be trusted to give an actual portrayal of what the game is like, because...well, it's just a concept.


    Oh, and in other news...JIM DOOLEY (the genius behind the Pushing Daisies soundtrack) is doing the score! He's my favorite composer of all time, so this is a big deal for me!

    It's still dark and moody for something with the Disney name. Oh, sure, it's probably not darker than the Disney portions of Kingdom Hearts, but it's still a step in the right direction for me.

    Also, those in-game shots seem to mimic the Mary Blair flat style pretty well. I mean they said that the Gremlin Village is supposed to look like It's a Small World, and it does. Sure, the graphics on the Wii will not match the painted concept art, but it's pretty close at least. I'm curious about the "darker" areas now.
