Back in December 2008, Gamasutra reported that Warren Spector’s Junction Point Studios could be working on a new game staring the most famous mouse in the world, Mickey Mouse.  This top secret project, referred to as “Epic Mickey”, is supposedly a collaboration between the Austin-based game studio, Disney Features Animation, and Pixar.

While plenty of games starring the iconic mouse have been made in the past, this new one stands out from the crowd due to its rumored steampunk look and style.  Kotaku has apparently done some digging and discovered a large collection of concept art, which they believe to be from the game.  To check out this incredible looking art, and to find out more about this rumored game,  hit the jump.

If this concept art is real, it appears that last year’s report from Gamasutra could be completely true.  Not only does the artwork look very detailed and professional, it also matches the description of the concept art shown to Gamasutra employees last year.  According to their report, the concept stills showed “pencil sketches of cities constructed from junk.”  They also described a sketch they saw of “a surreal seashore invasion scene, in which machines wearing the faces of the Seven Dwarfs deposit old-fashioned renditions of Disney characters onto the beach with mechanical hands.”  One of the images found, shown above,  appears to match that exact description.

Now this could all be a coincidence, or it could be an elaborate hoax, but at this point too much information is flowing in to dismiss any of it.  According to a quote from EGM magazine columnist Philip Kollar, “Spector’s new Disney project will be a platformer looking to compete with a certain pesky plumber. And who’s big enough to take on Nintendo’s star? Only the mouse himself!”  This quote was released back in March of 2008, and now, more then a year later, Kotaku believes it has found evidence that the title in question will be a Wii exclusive platformer.  Coincidence?

Unfortunately, until something is officially announced by Disney or Junction Point Studios, this is all just speculation and rumor.  For now you can take a gander at these incredible concept artwork images, which are sure to pique your interest.

    Well is there one or two wall switches to ctronol this are is it wired direct with a chain like ceiling fan in a house?This makes a difference if there are wall switches. A grey wire is not standard house wiring so I would check with the manufacture of the fan for wiring. Dealing with electricity without proper knowledge is a little risky better left to the pros. I hate to give advice to someone and then your house burns down because of any odd device or wiring I can’t see. There are lots of web sites if you search for ceiling fan wiring that will show you how to do it. Please be careful and make sure power is off and test it with a meter to make sure before touching any wires please.

    I’m with you on this: at 10$ it’s not much of a mistake if you play the game only 1h. 10$ is what you’d spend in beer over 1h anwyays. If the game is good, you just made the deal of the century and can probably spend another 10$ or 20$ to buy extras in-game, right now or later on. If the game was lame then you saved your belly from 10$ of not really needed beer calories.
