As the followers of my twitter feed are all too aware, I'm pretty much completely obsessed with every slowly-trickling detail of this new Mickey Mouse game. That might seem like slightly... strange behaviour for a grown man, I admit. But consider:
• The game's concept art depicts a bizarre-looking post-apocalyptic steampunk world populated by nightmarish, razor-edged Disney cyborg people.
• The rumoured plot involves Oswald the Rabbit leading an army of obscure and forgotten Disney characters out from the miserable prison void in which they are forced to live to revolt against the mouse and company.
• And most mystifying of all, this madness is actually being directed by Warren Spector. Warren Spector!
Can you blame me for being so fascinated?I mean, how does a project like this even exist? What Disney executive actually signed off on this project? "Hey, you know what the kids will really like? A Warren Spector-directed game where Mickey battles a dark army of mutated Disney extras in a steampunk nightmareland." It's like it's been beamed in from another dimension. It is not from our reality.
