Disney has released the third episode in a series of videos giving a behind the scenes insight into the creation of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Introduced by the game’s creator, Warren Spector of developer Junction Point, this one takes a look at the storytelling aspect to development.
In this two and half minute segment, you’ll hear how Marv Wolfman, award-winning American comic book writer and co-writer of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two develops the relationship between Mickey and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit – Walt Disney’s long lost character at last returned to the fold.
Can it deliver a story that the player appreciates both as observer and participant in a video game context? With renewed emphasis on the very foundations of the Mickey Mouse universe, with Junction Point going over the old cartoons and such, it looks like it’s barking up the right tree.
