Disney’s Epic Mickey producer Warren Spector firmly believes that the original Epic Mickey game is the best looking title on Wii. Spector is also adamant that the game sounds better than any Wii game ever created. He did however promise that Epic Mickey: The Power of Two will be a natural improvement over the original, which received mixed reviews from numerous quarters.
“As obnoxious as it sounds, I still think the first Mickey game was the best looking Wii game ever that anyone’s ever made so sue me. I love the way the game looks. I’m not saying anyone else has to agree, it’s just my opinion.
“I also think it sounds better than any Wii game ever [laughing] but you can always do better. We’re going to. When people see the 2D levels, the 2D side-scrolling levels in the new game I think they’re going to see that the team has taken those to a whole new level.”
“We’ve already talked about camera and voice [in Epic Mickey: The Power of Two] – of course we’re going to do better this time around – we built a studio and team, a world, a code base, a game engine, we established our relationships with everyone at Nintendo and Disney with the first game.
“This time around we know what the world is, we know who the characters are, we know what the gameplay is. What are paint and thinner for? We didn’t even know that when we started the first game. So I would hope that everything will be better this time around.”
