I’ve never really been a fan of the Mickey Mouse and friends aspect of Disney. I find it too childish and all, but they’re, well, inescapable.
Over at artist Fred Gambino’s website there is a section called ‘Epic Mickey’. It contains Mickey Mouse art reimagined in a steampunk setting. It is rumored to be concept art for a new interactive game from Disney.
Epic Mickey (most probably a code name) is rumored to be developed for the Wii. There’s very little news about it now, but I am so loving the steampunk reimagining. It is something Disney needs to appeal to the hardcore gamer crowd.
