[up]Actually, Junction Point didn't take quite as much of a hit compared to other divisions of Disney Interactive. Still very unfortunate.

Disney's shift to all-digital stuff really saddens me.

So... this does NOT bode well for a sequel, right?

A Darker and Edgier Disney-related game involving Badass Mickey who has to uncover the Masquerade of Oswald The Unlucky Rabbit? YESS! I love the Nightmare Fuel of the Waste lands and I've always wanted something like this to happen for Disney waii even though I've never heard of Oswald (I was born in the 90s)...

[up][up] I think most of the layoffs were in other divisions of Disney Interactive, including the online groups. Junction Point did get hit, but it was pretty minimal compared to other studios under the Disney banner.

Disney must be smoking if they are laying off workers from Junction point just bugs me. Anyways I saw pic of Blot storm Oswald,no word could describe how frightened I was. Anyways, the same guy uploaded another concept piece of Thinner Mickey. http://hamilton74.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d37xwa7

The term Bad Ass would some up that perfectly, with a mixture of nightmare.

[up] Page not found. Basic summary please?
Despite my screen-name, ranting to you about One Piece is not my top priority.
The link does work. Notice the spaces between the lone zero and the commas? Put all of it together and you should be able to see it.

Basically, Disney is focusing its attention on mobile and online entertainment, drifting away from the console business. Sales of games such as Tron and Tangled have failed to reach a million copies sold, so the studio responsible for them has been closed. They're reestructuring their whole strategy, since they have had little success regarding videogames.

Disney Interactive Media Group laid off about 200 people Monday as co-Presidents John Pleasants and James Pitaro announced a sweeping reorganization of the unit's games and online groups. The cuts are believed to represent the first wave of reductions, with more expected in the coming months as the recently installed executives work to trim costs and achieve profitability, according to people with knowledge of the situation.

"The pair of executives were installed in October with a mandate to reverse the fortunes of Disney's digital media group, which reported a net loss of $787 million over the last three fiscal years on revenues of nearly $2.2 billion."

Indeed, among the console games released in 2010, several failed to sell even 1 million units, including two pegged to Disney films Tangled: The Video Game and Tron: Evolution and the racing game Split/Second. Disney Interactive closed Propaganda Games, the Vancouver, Canada-based development studio responsible for the Tron game, earlier this month.

Creutz and others on Wall Street interpreted Disney's $563.2-million acquisition last summer of Playdom, a company that develops games for social networks such as Facebook and MySpace, as signaling a shift in strategy for the games group.

The Problem with Licensed Games may be just a wee bit responsible for the low sales of Tangled and Tron...Right? Epic Mickey has sold pretty well so far...But this is discouraging, indeed.

Indeed. I LOVE adventure games and was inspired by them a bit growing up.

Plus, now we got MORE people out of work!

....hmmm... does this mean they will eventually re-conceptualize THIS?

[up][up] No. Not for Tron, at least. It was awesome with a heaping side of eye candy.
[up][up] Holy crud, I didn't know about that. So much juicy potential there...

[up]Oh, was it? I wouldn't know, I didn't play it......Precisely because of The Problem with Licensed Games stigma tongue

I'm so sick of Disney being unable to handle a moderate success. Seriously, what's it going to take?

Well, nothing's been confirmed, so let's hope for the best.

[up]First, it would have been a spin-off, not a true sequel.

Second, Don't worry, because it looks like it's been cancelled anyway.sad

Spin-off? I must have missed that, sounded like an Oswald video game was going to happen.

Ahh, well... I did enjoy the first Epic Mickey. That's all that matters now.

So I finally got this game and played it a bit.

Love it. Might not be the BEST game, but a good first effort. And I'd love to see more if for no other reason than to see other forgotten Disney characters get referenced.

Also... there's a statue of Beast in Dark Beauty castle. anything else slip by the "no characters Post-Walt" rule?

[up] Well, there are the references to Tron, Black Hole and Lilo and Stitch in Tomorrow City. Also Scar and the gargoyles from Hunchback are in Dark Beauty, gargoyles showing up more in the endgame.
