Last year, the gaming website Gamasutra teased at a possible "steampunk" video game-treatment of classic Disney characters, codenamed Epic Mickey (think Kingdom Hearts, but with mechanized-scorpion Country Bears.) Although the game has yet to be officially announced, it's all but confirmed that production is underway.
The project is being steered by Warren Spector, a designer behind the legendary video game Deus Ex, and will likely be on the Wii. Check out the rest of the game's mildly disturbing concept art at Kotaku. There's no other news yet about this project, but there are plenty of rumblings that the October issue of Game Informer will feature an in-depth exposé on the game. Stay tuned.
