In honor of Epic Mickey being released this week, we are making Friday Games a retrospective on game designer/producer Warren Spector.
Epic Mickey is the first title Spector has released since 2004's Thief: Deadly Shadows, and the first he has had a direct creative hand in since 2000's Deus Ex. Deus Ex remains one of the most critically acclaimed games in the Western gaming world, cited as a watershed moment in game design for its complex AI, open level design, and moral choices.
How does Epic Mickey stack up to Spector's ample legacy? Come to the GAMBIT lounge after 4pm to find out. We'll be playing a few of Spector's older games--including Deus Ex--to give a little context, before loading up Epic Mickey to see what all the fuss is about.
