Epic Mickey


Recommended Posts

I am unbeleivably stoaked by this new game: http://www.destructoid.com/epic-mickey-epi...e--151187.phtml


*The game's plot revolves around "forgotten" Disney characters. Obscure characters from long-forgotten cartoons and rides have been cast into a dark world of broken-down machinery and very bitter attitudes.


*The main villain is Disney's first-ever cartoon hero, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Now a nobody, he has rallied the residents of the dark world and is out for revenge against the mouse that took his place as Disney's spokesman.


*Oswald unleashes the Phantom Blot, a monster that invades the Disney universe and begins to disassemble it by using black ink and making the colors of the world run together (this explains the "melting" imagery used in concept art). It's all very meta, this.


*Mickey Mouse will save the Disney world by fixing the Blot's undoings, using a set of tools like paintbrushes, paint thinner, erasers and pencils to restore the artwork of his universe.


*The tools are mapped to various Wiimote gestures.


*The game is all about artwork and exploring. Also, Mickey will be getting a radical makeover, which is why nobody's seen his face yet. A source tells Eurogamer that "he's far more retro than you've seen him for years."


*There are also rumors surfacing that Epic Mickey will not be exclusive to the Wii, based on Game Informer removing the Wii exclusivity claim from its teaser page. Might mean nothing, but we'll have to see.


The concept art for the game is just amazing. My only dissapointment is that it's a platform-action game, and not an adventure-RPG like I was expecting.


Still though! Phantom Blot!
