Peter Ong, creative director of DreamRift, has revealed that Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion will feature twenty endings. Ong says that the 2D platformer features a number of character rescuing and quest missions which ultimately gives the player plenty of optional choices. The choices that you make will then influence the ending of the game. Ong went on to say that there are over 20 different endings to the game.
When we interviewed Warren Spector, he noted that different actions you make will affect the outcome of the game, but currently they look like they’re focused on alternative routes through areas rather than moral decisions. Is this the case?
“The character rescuing and quest system in the game involves a lot of optional choices the player can make. These choices influence the ending of the game. In fact, there are over 20 different endings to the game, and many more ways to influence how the Fortress will grow by the end.”
“Many of the choices that you are presented with through the Fortress quest system involve moral choices. Each of the quests that the characters present to Mickey is based on that character’s individual storyline and motivations.”
“Consequently, you will make choices such as whether to help out a villain character like Captain Hook, knowing that the character has previously plotted against you. It’s up to you to decide whether to help Captain Hook, based on how you feel about what that character has done in the past, and whether the player trusts the character’s current motives.”
