Deus Ex Co-creator Working on 'Epic Mickey' Game?

By Nick Breckon, Dec 22, 2008 5:00pm PST New concept art and information obtained by Gamasutra indicates that Warren Spector's Disney-owned Junction Point Studios may be working on a steampunk-styled Mickey Mouse game.

Spector, one of the co-creators of Deus Ex, has already confirmed that his studio is working on a game in collaboration with Disney Feature Animation and Pixar.

According to Gamasutra, the project carries the rather blunt codename of "Epic Mickey." The publication described early concept art as having a "distinctly shadowed, steampunk vibe."

"Another sketch included a surreal seashore invasion scene, in which machines wearing the faces of the Seven Dwarfs deposit old-fashioned renditions of Disney characters onto the beach with mechanical hands," wrote Gamasutra.

No other details on the project have been confirmed, though a rumor out of 1UP earlier this year pegged the game as a platformer.
