Continuing its extended coverage of Warren Spector's Epic Mickey, Game Informer has put up a massive interview with the legendary designer himself. Details on game mechanics, the storyline, how the project came about, and more are covered in the discussion, but for the sake of this post, I'll be highlighting two sections.

While it seems many of us would love to see Epic Mickey go beyond a Wii-only release, we need to face it; we're kind of in the minority when looking at the big picture. "We made the call to go to the Wii long before it was clear that the Wii was going to be, at least for now, the best-selling platform," says Spector.

"It was about going where the audience is and going somewhere where they’re going to accept a visual style that is more cartoony than people are used to seeing and where we don’t feel obliged to throw in every shader on the planet."

Later on in the talk, Spector reveals his desire to make Mickey Mouse "cool." He also says he wants "there to be a theme park ride," and "a feature-length film," which if made, " would rock peoples’ worlds." Lastly, and probably the craziest thing to come out of the interview, Spector says he wants to make a Duck Tales game.

"I can’t convince anybody at Disney to let me do a Duck Tales game. How can that be?" I think I speak for all of us when I say Epic Mickey had better pave the way for such a videogame to be created.
