Warren Spector, the acclaimed designer behind Epic Mickey: The Power of Two, has told G4 that he wants the game to resonate with players in a similar way as films such as Toy Story and Snow White. Spector believes that Epic Mickey: The Power of Two will offer a level of immersion and emotion that other video games just haven’t managed to achieve.
“What I want people to come away with is that they’ve experienced an emotional story that they get when they watch Snow White or Toy Story.”
“Players can create experience when they play that are life-affecting as any book or movie or play.”
To the infinity and beyond!
If it’s as emotional as Up it should get game of the year.
Up is actually my favorite Pixar movie because it’s emotional. When I read the banner, I thought “Oswald is probably going to die in this one”.
But there are already a lot of emotionally life-changing games out there. Has this guy ever played The World Ends with You?
Yes that would be interesting
“Spector believes that Epic Mickey: The Power of Two will offer a level of immersion and emotion that other video games just haven’t managed to achieve”… I don’t think this game can bring the emotion that Skyward Sword gave me…
“As emotional as Toy Story”
Unless this game can make me bawl my eyes out, FAT FUDGING CHANCE!
(Toy Story 3, that is. I can see them making it as emotional as the first one, though.)
