Spector on cut Alice element in Epic Mickey, Epic Mickey 2's musical element could be expanded for sequelClick Here to View Story
“We wanted to do an Alice in Wonderland part of Wasteland and, as the story developed and as I looked around at my team and saw what they were excited about, I didn’t have anybody who was gonna champion that land, who had great ideas for adventures in that land... Someday maybe we’ll come back to it; maybe someone will come along and say, ‘I’ve got an idea for the story in Wonderland’ and we’ll talk about that and maybe it shows up in a game someday." - Warren Spector
Spector also discussed the musical elements of Epic Mickey 2. He says that if things go well this time, he's going all-out with the mechanic in a future title.
“I always knew that the second game was gonna be two-player co-op and that Oswald was gonna be a playable character. I knew that in 2005. That was a done deal. I had some really crazy ideas about ways to use music in games, that seemed very Disney-like to me, and you asked about how do you cut things? Well, you can’t do everything so that didn’t make it into the first game, which was fine. And I know where I’m going with it, someday, I hope, maybe, but this time around, in the second game, I just wanted to take a baby-step to making the full-blown interactive musical game. This is not it. Gamers, you tell ’em there are songs in the game and they start getting panicked, but I just want to see if people will accept songs in games and, if they do, next time I’m going crazy. People don’t even know what’s gonna hit ’em.”
