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…

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.

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."

Epic Mickey 2 Coming To PC, Via 800 Devs

Eight hundred? Well, sort of. They're not all working on it all of the time, but as Warren Spector explained to Eurogamer: "You can either build a studio that has 700 people, which I desperately don't want to do, and didn't and don't and won't, okay? Or you can find partners around the world... So we have people working in Leamington in the UK, in…

Spector Wanted Deus Ex. Eidos Say No. :(

Variety have been interviewing Warren Spector about the Wii-Epic Mickey game and amongst the information that's irrelevant to THE WORLD'S MIGHTIEST PC GAMING BLOG a couple of facts came to light. Specifically, some more details of the two games which Junction Point were working on before they were acquired. One was a fantasy game, but the other was basically Deus Ex with the serial numbers…
