What's on your mind?
Have you ever wanted to make your own Epic Mickey adventure, but never had the resources to do it? Well, now you can! I'm going to invite everyone on the wiki to participate in the Gameboy Dev challenge! What you'll need to do is:
1. Download your toolkit! We will be using Gameboy Studio, a program that's well liked and can be learned in minutes! I've used it before, and I love it!
It's 100% free. Just download it here on their website: https://www.gbstudio.dev/
2. Make your graphics! I personally use Piskel, a free 8-bit sprite making site, but you can use anything that works. Images must be the right size, color, and format (PNG.)
3. MAKE YOUR ADVENTURE! Now's the fun part! Use your imagination to make the EM journey you've always wanted! You can publish the game on a community for Gameboy Studio, and then put the link here!
If you choose to participate, good luck! Please just leave a comment to let me know you'll be doing it!
Someone put a link to the old Epic Mickey: Path Painter on the matching article! If you haven't already, play it!
I found these old concept art pieces online. I've seen them before and you probably have too, but what are they of? It looks like a giant steam barge or a oil drill.
Interesting thread from one of the animators who was working on the short-lived Epic Donald project. The fact that there's likely a pitch out there for both Epic Donald and the Epic Mickey movie that Warren Spector proposed is fascinating, but the fact that they'll probably never see the light of day is going to eternally drive me insane.
Epic Mickey opened up some new ideas about Toons and their existence, but we have already seen things like this before in comics, movies, and certain video games. So, in theory, how does the Toon world work? Is it like some writers have proposed (I'm thinking of Floyd Gottfredson), where the characters work for Disney once they are created, or is it like Warren Spector said, where the characters don't know that they're in a cartoon?
When you first played Epic Mickey, it was a one-of-a-kind experience, huh? Well, not so much! Apparently there was an old game called Mickey Mouse Mania in which Mickey goes through a bunch of old cartoons to save his former incarnations. It's a visually beautiful game, and for the SNES, it's incredible.
But what makes it like Epic Mickey is the classic cartoons. Many of the projectors in EM are similar to Mania's, and the Mad Doc is even a boss! If you've got an SNES or Sega around, you should definitely try this rare masterpiece. It's a lot like the more well-known Castle of Illusion.

Better camera? Darker music? Creepier characters? More intense bosses? How about voice acting? Or maybe you'd prefer a lighter atmosphere? Give me your thoughts!

Looking for opinions on what should be done with the NPC pages, specifically the "civilians" (dogs, goats, cows, horses). I'm planning on doing a sweep of them, adding a new infobox, adding images, and cleaning things up. Wondering what you guys think should be done with the Epic Mickey 2 sections.
As you probably already know, Epic Mickey 2 drops most of the NPC names and opts for names like "Male Dog". Currently, many of the articles for Epic Mickey NPCs contain the Epic Mickey 2 NPC category and a section that says something along the lines of "though this character is not named in Epic Mickey 2, it can be assumed that they're one of the generic NPCs". Examples: Abner, Rufus McBark, Ezra.
My problems with this are that this is very speculative, can be misleading with the Applicable Games template and Epic Mickey 2 category, and the fact that this isn't consistent with the way Gremlins are handled (no such section exists on most Gremlin pages despite the fact that they're also generically named in the sequel).
What do you guys think? Do you think the Epic Mickey 2 section and category should be kept on first game NPC pages, or should I remove it when I clean things up?
Another dumb question... Is the new hit indie game series, Bendy and the Ink Machine, have roots in Epic Mickey? For those who don't know, the first game in the series is a survival/ light horror game about a retired animator who returns to the supposedly abandoned animation studio where he used to make cartoons. In reality, though, his former boss wants to trap him in a living 1930's cartoon nightmare. It's supposed to scare you out of your marbles, but it really is a puzzle game that is a tribute to the 1930's and classic cartoons, much like Epic Mickey is.
But the way that Bendy is most like Epic Mickey is in its dark portrayal of old films, and even Disney rides (one boss battle is against a Dumbo-like ride.). The main enemies of the game are Ink Creatures spawned by the deadly Ink Machine, and they're called Searchers, which sounds like Spatter, Slobber, etc.
So- a game based on classic Disney gone mad. Sound familiar?
I've enabled message walls on user profiles to make communication and collaboration between users easier. Fandom claims that they're doing a major overhaul and the message wall feature will likely be replaced yet again with something new, but they've offered no timeframe. Because we're all tired of waiting, this should do just fine for the time being.
Nothing has changed on wiki articles; this only applies to the talk pages on user profiles. The old talk pages are archived and can be accessed by clicking the See archived talk page link at the bottom of the message walls.
If you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to ask. Cheers!
Not sure how to get them, but I feel like it would be pretty cool to have Models of the characters and enemies from the games. I know we have some of the textures of some characters but I'm not all sure on how possible it is to rip the full models. 🤔
It's been 10 years and we still don't know the origins to the Tomorrow City Hopper and Spinner. I'm assuming that maybe there has to be SOMETHING that's Science Fiction during the Walt Disney age that they appear in. Any ideas?
So Epic Mickey has a ton of Cameo characters whether paintings, Beetleworx armor, giant floats, etc. Characters that have not physically appeared in the games, and we have quite a few stub pages on most of these characters even though there's really not much we can do with them. My plan on this is that maybe we could create a Cameos page that lists each character and all the Cameos they made in the franchise along with an image of said cameo. This would make things much more organized and less confusing on like Chip n Dale being in Epic Mickey 2.
Okay, so I've been wondering why we only have one admin now. Are we low on people on this wiki or something?
I mean, OswaldisCool can't do all the work to run a wiki by himself, right?
But, sadly, I think everyone is leaving this wiki to go to Discord... (Which is not a wiki.)
So, where are the Admins? I'm not gonna point anyone out, but half our admins have left the wiki and gone to other Fandoms (A few have a Lion King obsession, but I don't blame 'em- it's one of the only films Disney did right in, like, 70 years).
It's kinda sad, actually. That's why I've been pushing for Epic Oswald to be recognized here- we need new stuff to get people back!
