E3 2010 Epic Mickey - developer interview

Look: It’s my bloated, uncomfortable mug on camera, so I don’t really care if you think the following interview lacks in hard-hitting professionalism. For an unabashed animation nerd like me, Epic Mickey cast such a colossal shadow over everything else at E3 showfloor, I’m not sure I saw anything else underneath the silhouette of two round ears.


OMG Playable Disneyana! Upon learning a level took place on the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, a Disneyland attraction that was re-skinned with Tarzan over 10 years ago, I was already fighting back a sweaty geekgasm through which journalistic integrity could never survive. [Source]

But if I had to apologize to anybody, it’d be Jonathan Price, Senior Environment Artist on Epic Mickey. After all, he was nice enough to appear on camera for an impromptu back-and-forth. Little did he know he’d be bombarded with questions involving shuttered theme-park attractions and forgotten cartoon minutia the team was not ready to reveal. Feast upon my bias with your eyes AND ears, fellow man-children:

    I thought this was a great interview, (although I do prefer written ones) but I get a strange feeling that in the video, you want to beat the shit out of that guy.

    Love the interview. I'm thinking about buying a Wii just for this game. Just looks so wonderful and the purest form of fun. Thanks Disney and good job Games Radar with E3!

    It's nice to watch Chris spray all his Dis-Jizz on that poor art director. He's going to save the rest of it for this fall/ winter when it hits store shelves, only letting it out when he gets a copy of Epic Mickey. It'll be refreshing...

    Well, according to the concept art, "Its a Small World' is gonna be in it

    0:14-0:16... Chris is like a little kid again! I can't say that I'm really all that interested in this game at all, but this video did make it look sort of fun. Not totally as bad as I expected, I should say.
  • bongzilla - June 23, 2010 4:45 a.m.

    You're expressions are the best Chris. 2:05 to 2:07 silently communicates so much. Great interview.
  • initialreactionshow - June 23, 2010 2:18 a.m.
