Split/Mickey: Disney Arrive On Steam

When Disney shut down Junction Point last year, it seemed the then-delayed PC port of toon 'em up Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two would quietly vanish. And vanish it did, without a trace, until yesterday. After 20 months lost at sea, the final game from Warren Spector's studio suddenly appeared on Steam. Disney shook its pockets out onto Steam, turning up that lost…

Some Epic Mickey News: Castle of Illusion Remade

I played Castle of Illusion on the GameGear! Yes, I am that guy. It was on a school French exchange trip, and some friend who'd taken pity on my parent's ongoing refusal to get me a console had lent me his brick-sized Sega handheld for the duration of the endless ferry and bus journey. I played as much of the Mario-aping Mickey platformer as the…

Warren Spector’s Junction Point Closes

Sad news travels fast and although it's taken a while for Disney to confirm, we'd already heard convincing rumours suggesting that Epic Mickey developers Junction Point had closed earlier today. Polygon have now received a statement from the House of Mouse, which reads in part: "These changes are part of our ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace and to align resources…

The Rabbit Alliance: Epic Mickey 2

There short videos have been attempting to promote Epic Mickey 2 since we last looked at the game and here they are gathered in one place. I can't believe Warren Spector has managed to incorporate quite so many Star Wars characters and settings into the game in such a short time since the acquisition. The AT-AT boss fight looks absolutely stunning. That's all in my…

Warren Spector Explains Why Epic Mickey’s A Musical

I must admit to an odd fascination with Epic Mickey 2. I mean, it's a videogame musical. Who does that? And now, Me Of 12 Years Ago will feel an ominous tingling slither down his spine as Present Me says, "the creator of Deus Ex, that's who." But then, Warren Spector's kind of a legend, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the…

No Consolation Needed: Epic Mickey PC-Bound Nov 18

Sure, Epic Mickey 2 may be part of a diabolical scheme in which we play as one kind of rodent (mouse) while being another type of rodent (guinea pig) for Warren Spector's goal of turning every videogame ever into a musical, but that doesn't mean it can't be great. I'm curious, at least, given all the fightin' words Spector's been throwing around about his game's maturity…

Take Note: Epic Mickey 2 Cast Will Break Into Song

Speaking to Gametrailers, in a chunk of footage you can see below, Epic Mickey 2 lead Warren Spector explained that the fully-voiced cast for the new platformer will regularly feature characters breaking into song, in that time-honored Disney fashion. These songs will apparently explain things and further the story. Spector also told IGN: "This time around, in the second game, I just wanted to take…

Ear is Ten Mins of Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two

Time traveling dimension hoppers from a universe of electrical storms and VHS recorders have unearthed footage Warren Spector's next game, Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two and brought it into our... sorry? It's Wii footage? Oh, that explains it. I'm usually not snobbish, and I'm sure Youtube's compression doesn't do the Wii any favours, but jagged edges and about four colours really don't show…
