Paul Weaver: ‘Wii is full of memorable and classic platforming games’

Posted By | On 10th, Nov. 2010

GamingBolt had an exclusive opportunity to speak with Paul Weaver, who is the Director or Product Development at Junction Games who are currently looking after Epic Mickey. In our interview we asked him whether it was ever daunting to make a platformer on the Nintendo Wii, considering there is so much competition in that genre, to which he replied:

“It’s certainly been a daunting task, as Wii (not to mention the history of Nintendo) is full of memorable and classic platforming games going all the way back to the beginning of the genre. Fortunately for us, we’ve got some considerable strength in terms of development experience on the team and we probably spent as much time researching competitive titles as we did poring over Disney’s history. Remember though, Disney Epic Mickey as a platformer is only part of the experience; we’re also an action adventure title with RPG elements as well, and while we want our platforming experience to be fun and enjoyable, it’s not the only element of the game.”

We at GamingBolt surely think that the game is going to do well with the Paint and Paint Thinner feature. For all our avid readers check the full interview here.
