Fantasia is a work or art, best thing Disney (and all it's various offshoots) has ever produced.

Sadly this.

But if it gets realized like this, I will buy whatever platform it gets released on (already have a Wii and a PS3, so I think Iīm on the safe side :D ). It is understandable if they release it on the Wii though, the JumpīnīRun audience is there with Mario and the HD consoles have yet to see an amazing HD platformer.

Rescuers was a bright and cheerful musical. Rescuers Down Under was badass and it was indeed quite dark. Sykes has got nothing on McLeach, still my favorite Disney villain next to Ratigan.

depends on how it is marketed.

we see a video game made by a small dev team (albeit lead by one of the industries best), but if marketed correctly it could be the equivalent of a new Disney blockbuster (like a Pixar film).

I mean, I know nothing about it other than what this thread has shown me, so I could be way off base in both how Disney plan on positioning this and what the game actually is, but I think the potential is there for the public to perceive it as Disney's first "important" video game.

Judging by the state Epcot appears to be in the concept art, I don't think that's actually Goofy, but some sort of animatronic/robot that's fallen apart.

I don't see how though, not even with this.

I see it as a tribute, not a retooling or rebooting or any of that BS, but that's just me. Besides, I think this is not REALLY "Goofy", I think it is a mere steampunk mecha of him. Would seem to make some sense. I mean, the file is called "Zombie Goofy", but does that look like a Zombie to you? If it is one, then that could also mean that all the characters in the game are mecha. That would be something else!

you're familiar with shortcut file names or titles that make an image easy to find when searching for it? =p

the Half Life games' maps are always named after what they vaguely resemble, for instance.

Should have said traditional 3D platformer like Rayman 2, Mario 64 or Banjo. Braid and ME are excellent and interesting takes on the genre but I really miss the N64 days where 3D JumpīnīRuns had lots of adventure elements and a cartoony style.

Banjo's way more of a minigame compilation than straight-up platformer. The other two fit the mold much better. But yeah, there really isn't a great 3D platformer on those systems like there was during the N64 or even PS2 era.

What I've said is true, though. The game - assuming the concept art is a great indication of it - would be astounding to see on HD-capable platforms. I certainly don't mean to imply that JPS' creativity is constrained or their artistic vision shortened by having it on the Wii, which seems to be the way you've taken the post.

I think Disney is trying to reinvent/reinvigorate the "franchise". It's a good way for these old properties to stay relevant. And steampunk is the perfect excuse/avenue to go about doing that...it's not too dark like say a gothic style and it can make for a really interesting world. Disney already allowed their properties to be somewhat twisted in Kingdom Hearts, they're just taking the concept even further.

Hmm, consider me cautiously optimistic, Deus Ex 2 taught me that Mr. Spector is in no way immune to coming up with stinkers. I just hope that this ends up being fun to play.

By the way, I must say I still prefer a steampunk rendition of Disney characters to what Square did when they paired them up with Final Fantasy characters. Now that is what I call odd.

If people were really concerned about how far the game could go graphically, they'd demand it be released for high-end PCs. Of course, this isn't about "fulfilling JPS' vision", but bitter tears about a game they want not being released for a console they own.

not necessarily. wanting a game to look as good as possible is not an unreasonable request.

I was a little bit put off when I realised it was a Wii title, but only because I want that amazing art to be realised in as stunning a way as possible, not because I want to validate any console purchase.

But if you wanted the game to look as good as possible, surely the only option is to release it with specs so demanding that only the most technologically capable, high-end PCs could play it?

There seems to be this idea among some gamers on the board that HD consoles are at the top of the ladder, when in reality they're a few rungs down.

I'm not trying to specifically target you here, but it seems that the logic behind the "Noooo! Why not HD?!" comments is self-defeating. Furthermore, I'm not saying that people can't be frustrated that a game they want is not being released for a platform of their choice - it's reasonable to be annoyed that you can't have easy access to something you want - but I find that masking this under some sense of wanting to "truly fulfil the potential of the game" is slightly disingenuous.

Off topic question, What's the best version of Rayman 2?


I actually really enjoy what they are doing here. Surprised Disney is allowing too. But who knows, looks really creative. I'm definitely interested now to see it in full motion. Seems to have some solid potential.

Also, lets stop the **** platform crying. A game is not on the system you own. Either buy the system and play it or don't :lol
