We've known that during the holidays of this year, Junction Point Studios and Disney Interactive were releasing the game entitled "EPIC Mickey". Many people first saw the game as this bad ass dark steampunk like game thanks to the first concept sketches and artwork that were leaked, but when time passed and more information began to arise, the game looked like something for kids. Personally, I think it'll be a cool game, since I've been hyped up ever since I first heard news of the game (early 2009 when I heard about it and saw the concept art).
More and more information got out and a few people regained their interest on the game and started to know more, like the return of Disney's original pride and joy, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (before a problem with Universal, which we give thanks to this or else Mickey wouldn't have existed).
With the information we have now, we know that it's a game that is based on whether or not to redeem oneself from their actions, which is basically what it's going to be about. Mickey creates a monster by accident, the monster comes back after years of destroying the Wasteland (home for the forgotten and unloved characters of Disney), drags Mickey into the Wasteland and tries to take his heart so he can get out. Good thing about the game is "play style matters", like Warren Spector said, the man who brought this game to life with his team. You choose what Mickey does, erase with thinner or create with paint. At first, Mickey's appearance would change with the constant use of different mediums to get something done, but unfortunately they tweaked this bit and removed the bad ass Scrapper Mickey and replaced the whole appearance thing with something called Guardians (if you erase a lot and destroy, you'll get a thinner Guardian, if you paint a lot and help others, you'll get a paint Guardian).
This game looks pretty bad ass and hopefully I'll get to buy it or get it for Christmas, since they're gonna release also a collector's edition of the game for $69.96. Also, a nunchuk cover will be available on October 18th in the form of Mickey's brush along with a Wii remote charger in the form of the Phantom Blot confronting Mickey like in the poster.
Hopefully this game is, and sorry for the pun, EPIC XD
I can't wait to see how this turns out, but I still think it can go either way. In fact, I'm not sure I'll buy it at launch... but we'll see. I might want to wait for a few opinions to be published before spending the money that, if, God forbid, the game turns out to be mediocre, I should be spending on the other dozen and a half games I'm looking forward to - i.e. Fallout: New Vegas, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bioshock Infinite, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Portal 2, Fable III... the list goes on.
