But now we’re in everyone’s face, so to speak, and it’s time to deliver. It’s possible that I’ll never get the opportunity to work on a game of such potential again – so I’m going all in.
Well, I think the studio leadership must have heard about me going all in, because I can’t remember a thing from the summer and fall of 2010 except being tied to my desk helping our team get this baby out the door.
I’m not complaining. I’m very much aware of how difficult it is to ship. Besides, it looks like Epic Mickey is poised to become the most successful game of my career – and by a large margin. This is also the first time I’ll be able to play one of my games with the kids – with all three of us enjoying the experience – much like we do with Super Mario Galaxy, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Chibi Robo, Zack & Wiki, Rocket Slime, etc.. That’s some pretty good company right there.
And my kids just love Oswald the Lucky Rabbit now. Ella below was especially delighted when I told her that Oswald is voiced by the legendary Frank Welker (he did Megatron back in the 80s, and my kids are just so cool for getting that).
Anyway, my work on the title is done, and we’ll be on store shelves November 30th. Now to get back to all the other stuff in life I love so much …
