Whether or not this project is dark is up to you. Regardless, Disney has done dark in the past, and they can do it again. If this is dark, then I want this kind of dark!

Perhaps "dark" isn't quite the right term... but, well, that's only one concern... the other one is the weird mishmash of "styles" present. The game appears to be showing the aftermath in the real world, with remnants of smelly swapwater Disney theme parks.

All I'm saying is that I doubt the artwork, as we see it now, will directly reflect the game. I find it hard to believe we'll see a mixture of "broken down real world" mixed with animation.

If anything, this art seems to point more towards a "feeling" for the game than for any guaranteed game concepts.

We'll see, though... I suppose.

Do you realize how risky Fantasia was? Howe out there it is? Certain parts are probably more abstract than anything Spector will come up with.

And I dont think it will have naked female spirits dancing in fires of hell around a massive satanic god figure.

I get that, but it never felt as dark as this does. Perhaps my perspective on Fantasia is different from yours, but it never felt grim to me.

You bring up a good point, art does not always reflect a finished product.

Not with Mickey and Goofy like... those artworks.
I mean... damn.

"Darkest" [which obviously WASN'T "dark"] Mickey we had was this



and it's not as creepy as some of those artworks.

Sorry, it's just that i still don't know if i like what i've seen.
Artworks are awesome, but why Mickey and Goofy? it seems they are trying too hard to please people that want a mature version of everything.

Blimey, fair enough. I wouldn't say I'm an Oswald fan per se, it's just quite a major part of Disney's history for it to be ignored. I've never seen anything Oswaldish before.

Looks like it:

Graham Hopper [General Manager, Disney Interactve]: Warren's hard at work. He has a team working on a great project. We're going to show it when it's right and ready. We're very encouraged by what we're seeing. I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised. [...]

The project that Warren's working on is something that we've had creative ideas about for a long time before we found the right guy to make it -- which was Warren.

Warren has taken that and changed it a lot along the way and made it better, and we've given him the time to do that. We're into a very, very extensive prototyping and technology phase on the game. Right now he's building levels. To get to that point took a long time. That's why we've been quiet. But that's what the game needs to be successful.

Disney owns the studio that is making the game, and Spector has been hyping this game up for a while now, so it seems so.

Would have been awesome, but also, kind of out of place.
I think at their own event would be better. Use it to get huge media coverage from just the real gaming press.

That's a weird one. Several people posted that rumor (not Shiggy, though, if I remember correctly), but it was never clear if the rumor was about this title or the next Kingdom Hearts.

I didn't post it, but I heard of it. Though I have some severe doubts as JPS was still staffing up earlier this year. I don't think it's fleshed out yet.

All the developer CVs only mention Wii and you only see Wii controllers at Junction Point. So yes, it most likely is.

WARNING, MASSIVE IMAGES ALERT. Tell me if you want me to just link them and I'll do so.

If you haven't looked a more accurate version of the story up on Wikipedia already... Basically he preceeded Mickey Mouse, and when Walt Disney had to give the rights to Oswald up he made a duplicate character with rounded ears instead of the long ones Oswald had. That character became Mickey.

That's awesome. I love hearing about behind the scenes and historic things like this. Kind of makes you think "what if". I'm going to go check out the Wiki on Oswalt now, thanks.
