What would happen if the bright, happy place Mickey Mouse and his friends call home became a ruined, dark wasteland? Well, you get Epic Mickey
, a curious set of concept artwork that have caught many a geek's eye.
The word going around is that Epic Mickey will be a Wii exclusive. No word, though, on what story is being told or what characters are involved in this game. UK based artist Fred Gambino is responsible for the images created thusfar. If you've watched cartoons like The Ant Bully, The Tale of Desperaux or Jimmy Neutron, you're familiar with his work. Warren Spector (System Shock, Deus Ex) is behind the story that will bring these beautiful scenes to life.
So what adventures are in store for Mickey Mouse in Epic Mickey? Details are scare, but the game involves painting with your Wiimote. The main adversary of The Mouse is a character we (presumably) have never seen before, a character who has long been forgotten. I can't wait to see what this turns into.
