    Talking More Steampunk Goodness From Disney Epic Mickey

    Howdy everyone. I was contacted today by one of the Social Marketing folks for Epic Mickey. Since they contacted us in advance, I offered to allow her to post here to help keep you all up to date on the pending release of this highly anticipated game. So please help me welcome DEMirene to the boards.



    I've personally been following this project since I ran across some leaked early concept art over a year and a half ago. I was immeadiately struck by its beautiful, dark, and foreboding steampunk aesthetic.

    Here are a couple screen shots of the game in action:





    Here's the latest YouTube video of the story development of the game:
    YouTube - Disney Epic Mickey -- Behind the Scenes Video: Storytelling

    The game is now available for pre-order




    It appears that the game is being released only on the Wii for now. I, for one, would love to see it for XBox and PC as well. And if Disney REALLY wants to earn my love, they'll release it for iPad as well.

    November 30th is just around the corner!!!

    Re: More Steampunk Goodness From Disney Epic Mickey

    How many attractions from the parks are represented?
    And how involved are they in the game?
    It would be awesome to know that they are there for more than just decoration.
    I know from concept art that Ive seen the Haunted Mansion, Small World, Matterhorn, and Space Ship Earth.
    Thanks!

    Hopefully we get to travel to Frontierland. So far, there has not been anything implying that you can go there.

    Re: More Steampunk Goodness From Disney Epic Mickey

    Is the one picture of Mickey in the snowy mountain the Matterhorn or Everest? I know they have shown only the Matterhorn in the previews but I wanted to know if they are both in Wasteland.

    Re: More Steampunk Goodness From Disney Epic Mickey

    Are you talking about the 2d travel map "Alpine Climbers"? So far, I haven't actually seen any pictures of gameplay on the Matterhorn, but I'm positive that they won't use Everest. It's practically the same ride, just with a different name, track, and location in the country.

    If your talking about "Alpine Climbers", it's not on either one of the rides. The location of the cartoon is in the Alps, and it'll probably be a travel map for the Matterhorn level.

    PAINT AND THINNER EXPECTED TO ALTER THE WORLD WHEN DISNEY EPIC MICKEY
    LAUNCHES ON NOVEMBER 30, 2010
    New Gameplay Video Available at Disney.com Showcases Journey through the Forgotten World of Disney Epic Mickey

    September 16, 2010 – Disney Interactive Studios announced today that Disney Epic Mickey will be available on November 30 in North America, November 26 in the United Kingdom and November 25, 2010 in Europe. With its innovative style of gameplay using paint and thinner to dynamically change the game world, Disney Epic Mickey is one of the most anticipated titles of 2010. The game’s new video, “Journey”, is available for viewing now at www.Disney.com.

    “I believe that video games tell stories as deep and as sophisticated as movies, books or any other medium. In Disney Epic Mickey, Mickey Mouse is faced with challenges worthy of a hero, while the players’ actions and their decisions throughout the game alter the gameworld,” said Warren Spector, general manager and creative director, Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point in Austin. “We are honored and humbled by the anticipation for Disney Epic Mickey, and we could not be more excited to get the game in people’s hands so that they can experience the thrill of becoming a hero and controlling their own destiny.”

    Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s long forgotten characters and attractions, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.



    Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.


    Disney Epic Mickey will be available exclusively for the Wii console.

    This looks amazing!

    Is it a combination of parks, or just Disneyland?

    Welcome to the boards DEMirene, thanks for sharing!

    Re: More Steampunk Goodness From Disney Epic Mickey

    I'm excited for Epic Mickey! I'm going to reserve the Collectors Edition at the Gamestop across from my college campus (El Camino) tomorrow!

    When we play the game, will we need anything else like the wii nunchuck? or can we play it with just the wiimote?

    Hey DEMirene, can you tell us if there will be a Frontierland section in the game? Frontierland is my favorite land in Disneyland I would really like to play through levels from that genre.

    Already have had this on Pre-Order. Looking forward to this plus I'm excited Disney allowed Sony to have character skins for Little Big Planet 2. Also welcome to the boards.
