Last November, Disney released Epic Mickey, a Wii video game where Mickey Mouse tries to help bring his long lost brother Oswald the Lucky Rabbit back from the dark side. We were fortunate enough to be able to sit down with video game producer—and fellow Disney buff!—Warren Spector, to chat with him about the game and what it was like to bring these monumental characters to life in a game.
You may recall that Warren explained the process of what went into making the game and its visuals, including all of the extensive research he conducted on not only classic artwork and Mickey Mouse cartoons, but also original Disney Studio animators and artists. He even visited the Museum for inspiration! (If you missed out, the interview can be found HERE).
The Walt Disney Family Museum is extremely pleased that Warren Spector will be visiting us once more, on March 5h starting at 3:00 p.m. in the Theater, to discuss the process of designing a video game! Learn how new technology has helped create an immersive and connective gaming experience, as Warren discusses how to design the world of a video game, and take you through the process from concept art to final product. The presentation will include a game-play demo and will be followed by audience Q&A. Tickets can be purchased online at www.waltdisney.org. It's time to get your game faces on!
