Warren Spector's lessons learned from Epic Mickey

Gamasutra- Warren Spector has never been afraid to polarize gamers. He is, in many ways, the epitome of the "go big or go home" style of game making – and he'll be the first to tell you that he'd rather fail in spectacular fashion than do something that bores him.

But there has never been a split like Epic Mickey. It was a game that was beloved by some and ripped to shreds by others. It was the best selling single-platform game in Disney's history -- but critics thumped Disney for leaving money on the table, citing the game's decision to release exclusively on the Nintendo Wii and its post-Thanksgiving release date.
