A heroic tale of redemption and discovery, Disney Epic Mickey is an adventure-platforming game with light role-playing elements for the Nintendo Wii, featuring an iconic and retro Mickey Mouse inspired by cartoons of the 1920s and 1930s. Pulled into a warped Disney universe called Wasteland, Mickey finds himself in a world inhabited by the retired and forgotten cartoon characters and attractions from Disney's past. Mickey must use the very elements of animation (paint and paint thinner) to explore Wasteland, find the source of evil that is destroying the land, and redeem his fellow cartoon characters. With visionary game designer Warren Spector behind the title, players choose their own path to restore Wasteland, face the consequences of those decisions and ultimately free the land.
About Mike Searle
Mike Searle remembers playing the simple yet addictive Missile Command, and the days of Atari Adventure, where your square hero could end up in a hollow dragon stomach. His desire to play computer games into the wee hours of the morning really took hold when his parents made him play outside, instead of on the console, so the first chance he got, he bought a PC to play the Ultima series, Doom, and countless others. Mike started working with Prima Games in 2002 and has written more than 30 strategy guides, including Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, Dark Messiah: Might and Magic, Pirates of the Burning Sea, and several guides in the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell series. He can't wait for thought technology, so game controls can catch up with his brain and stop all that needless in-game dying. At least, that's what he keeps telling himself about his FPS kill ratio.
