Disney Interactive and Junction Point’s action adventure title starring Mickey Mouse was unveiled to the public for the first time during Nintendo’s E3 2010 press conference, where the unique ‘drawing’ and ‘erasing’ gameplay mechanic was demonstrated to the audience.
While in the world of Disney Epic Mickey, players will be able to use the power of ‘paint’ to draw objects and items into the world to help them proceed, solve puzzles and gain the trust of the world’s inhabitants. Players can also use paint ‘thinner’ to erase objects from the world at will, even being able to erase walls, floors and ceilings to ease progress.
How you use these abilities will determine how the world and its characters react to you, which will in turn affect the way the story plays out.
You can see all of this in action in a couple gameplay videos below, and hear project head Warren Spector talk about Disney Epic Mickey:
