From Wiki:
Epic Mickey is a platform video game designed by Warren Spector and developed by Junction Point Studios for the Wii console. The game focuses on Mickey Mouse, who accidentally damages a world created by Yen Sid for forgotten characters and concepts, and is forced to fix the world while combating antagonists with a magic paintbrush. Epic Mickey notably features the first appearance of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit since 1943 as a major character, who was one of Walt Disney’s first successful cartoon characters before the character was licensed under the ownership of Universal Studios. The character was regained by The Walt Disney Company in 2006 under the guidance of Bob Iger. The game also marks the first time that Oswald and Mickey ever appeared together. The game is much darker and more complex than previous Mickey Mouse games.
Epic Mickey is part of an effort by Disney to re-brand the Mickey Mouse character by placing less emphasis on his pleasant, cheerful side and reintroducing the more mischievous and adventurous sides of his personality,focusing on the idea of depicting him as an epic hero. Spector collaborated with both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios in conjunction with the project. The game was officially announced on October 28, 2009 in London and released in November 2010 in both Europe and North America.
The game is set in a pen-and-paper stylized world called the Cartoon Wasteland. It was created by the sorcerer Yen Sid (Disney spelled backwards) for “forgotten Toons,” appearing as an intricate model of Disneyland in his workshop. Heavily based on the Disneyland theme parks, this world is home to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Gremlin Gus, and other obscure or scrapped Disney characters, Disneyland rides, or areas.
