Today, Nintendo and Disney announced, at the E3 conference, the new "Epic Mickey" videogame.
The game involves rebuilding a "wasteland" post-apocalyptic version of Disney World. What's interesting, though, is that some scientists warn that the state of Florida in the United States, in which Disney World is located, is at major risk for massive environmental destruction, due to the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster - possibly necessitating evacuation from the "wasteland".
During Nintendo's E3 2010 press conference, Epic Mickey was demoed on the show floor, showing off some of the game’s features. One thing that immediately jumped out at us was how good the game looked, especially being a Wii game.
At first glance Epic Mickey almost looks like your standard 3D plat former, but the player will be able to use paint or thinner to modify the environment to their liking. You could even thin the floor out to make a hole, and drop down below. Alternatively, you can paint the level to restore it. Apparently these choices will have an effect on the game later on down the line, but it remains to be seen what they could be.
Epic Mickey makes its debut later this year exclusively for Nintendo Wii.
