Spector's Disney project likely to be 'Epic Mickey'

Online reports detail Wii title from Junction Point Studios

Warren Spector's secretive project for Disney is likely to be called Epic Mickey, due for release on Nintendo's Wii.

Disney bought Spector's Junction Point Studios – responsible for fan-favourite Deus Ex – back in 2007, and has kept the acclaimed designer and his projects under wraps ever since.

But new artwork unearthed on forum Neogaf, and further details cribbed from online CVs by Superannuation point to Epic Mickey, possibly a codename, featuring familiar Disney characters and locations given a sci-fi or steampunk twist. The images also back up a report by Gamasutra from late last year.

Although Spector has been quiet on details of the game, he's been vocal in his belief that videogames are too long and that he's become tired of making games based on violent subjects.

Junction Point is also known to be collaborating with Pixar and Disney Feature Animation on a game, although "if I say anymore, I’ll get in trouble," said Spector last year. has contacted Disney for comment.
