Starting today fans can get their hands on the soundtrack for Disney Interactive Studio’s Wii-exclusive Disney Epic Mickey, featuring the music of Emmy Award winning composer, Jim Dooley. Released by Walt Disney Records, the digital score includes 20 tracks available through iTunes and other major digital media retailers. Warren Spector, the game’s creator, talks about Disneyland’s inspiration in building this virtual world in this exclusive video interview.
“Jim Dooley’s music perfectly captures the environment and feel of Disney Epic Mickey, raising players to great heights of emotion. His music perfectly completes the world of Wasteland,” said Warren Spector, general manager and creative director, Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point. “It is with great pride and pleasure that we make this incredible soundtrack available to video game and music fans alike.”
Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming video game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of discovery and redemption. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s long forgotten characters and attractions, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.
Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.
Jim Dooley is an Emmy Award winning composer based in Los Angeles, CA. His other works with Disney include the successful video Little Mermaid 3: Ariel's Beginning and ABC’s “Pushing Daisies.” He is the composer of other acclaimed and award-winning scores such as Infamous, NERF: N-Strike, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy Seals, U.S. Navy Seals: Combined Assault.
