The game Warren Spector has been working on for like 4 years now.

woah...that's....what? What am I looking at :O (aside from a graphical representation of purest awesome).

And I thought I could never be interested in a "classic" Disney property anymore. Whoah, totally not what I was expecting.

NOT what I had been expecting from the project at all - Mr Spector may be well on his way to redeeming himself after the Invisible War 'incident'

Harvey Smith directed Invisible War, not Spector.

Kingdom Hearts for the North America?

Internet Detectives are out in force today, found some more former Junction Point artists profiles...

I love the crazy scorpion country bear thing.

Really? I'd thought Smith was on Thief 3? Must be getting them mixed up.
That's a relief anyway...had started to think Spector had lost his mystical game-making powers

I remember last year's GDC Warren Spector interview on GFW radio he said he "couldn't believe that disney was letting do to their franchise". Now I know what he is talking about.

This is obviously a reaction to Kingdom Hearts great sales and letting different people mess with the property with awesome results.

Colour me intrigued. Quite impressive that this has been kept more or less hush-hush for so long. Anyone got any idea what it wil actually be... well, like.

On NeoGAF they have found out it's going to be on the Wii. So, I'm betting action/platformer/adventure game.

Well....it's no segacd Mickey Mania, but....

Seriously though? Looks intriguing in an American McGee's Alice kind of way - a game I definitely enjoyed (most of the time).

I think I'd love this game if they removed all the Disney property from it. As it stands, I don't know if I can get past that. It's a square peg in a round hole. Big mouse ears just don't fit in that world.

The contrast is kind of what appeals to me. Without this aspect the game might look interesting but probably wouldn't massively stand out to me. With it, it just becomes that much more interesting to me.

You are mixing people up, yeah. Randy Smith was the project lead for Thief 3, Harvey Smith for Invisible War.

I like the those two worlds combined together, it creates a great sense of irony.

Knowing the insanely tight control Disney exerts over their properties, and their twin obsession with family friendliness, the likelihood of them releasing a game featuring a rotting gear-driven Goofy, Mickey Mouse paint thinner, or a Country Bear Jamboree scorpion go out the door is negative one billion percent (approximately).

I'm sort sad that it's on the Wii because I don't have one and also I don't think the Wii could do these concept arts justice. Maybe they can pull it off.

Well obviously it already got green lit by Disney if this game has got this far already. Like I said above Warren Spector was surprised that Disney is letting him make this game and he said that a year and a half ago on GFW radio.

Those images are amazing.

Amazing stuff... but what the hell is this exactly? o_O

Disney also is committed to the Kingdom Hearts series, which isn't exactly the most family friendly iteration of those properties. And these images(for better or worse) give off a very distinct KH-ish vibe, especially when compared to some of the endgame areas in both games.

At first I was really disappointed, as this seemed like another game I would really enjoy if it were not for the ridiculous Disney BS. I was going to make a snarky comment about Bratz: Chernobyl and Quake 6: My Little Pony.

Looking at the concept art though, this looks like it might be decent as long as they don't try to "cute it up." I'm clearly not a fan of Disney so a synergy with Disney doesn't appeal to me, but a corruption might be worth a look.

But still, f*** Kingdom Hearts.

This was pretty much my impression until I saw this:

Then you will probably hate this game. I can almost guarantee this will be a Okami/Prince of Persia kind of thing, where it's your job to restore the magic and wonder of the Magic Kingdom (TM) from that corruption.

Hmm. Meh.

I couldn't care less about Disney characters. Our family likes Pixar movies and games, but thats about as far as our association with Disney goes. This game looks interesting, but I don't see the point of involving Disney in it, unless they want to be seen as "edgy". Spector could have innvented his own amusement park/cartoon characters if he wanted the game to have that anachronistic feel. Should be interesting to watch it evolve.

This is crazier than that RPG about Shaq in the dystopian b-ball future.

If Disneyland looked like that, I'd actually go back for once.

Oh, this is just too good. The concept art is highly appealing.
