Warren Spector's Mickey Mouse Game?

Gamasutra reports rumors that Warren Spector's Junction Point Studios is working on a project codenamed "Epic Mickey," saying they've seen concept art of this platformer game starring Mickey Mouse. Junction Point, founded by Deus Ex and System Shock designer Spector, was acquired by Disney last year, and word at the time was they'd be developing a "next generation" project. They also recall a recent report in EGM saying: "Word is that 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!" And of course, Spector himself recently said: "My team and I have been working hard on our own and (get ready for the cool factor to go way up) in collaboration with folks from Disney Feature Animation and Pixar." They are not sure how far along the project is, but they offer a description of the art they saw: "Though the kooky environmental concepts, with visible large cogs, gears and even a large fork that serves as a building's awning, are somewhat reminiscent of Disney's Toontown Online MMO, the images -- particularly the cloud-stained seaside painting -- have a distinctly shadowed, steampunk vibe."

In typical Spector fashion each level will have three different ways to complete it - one of which will always be "crawl through an air duct".
