The lights are on
Junction Point Studios, the developer behind the Epic Mickey franchise, has unfortunately closed, and Warren Spector shared some final words about the studio's legacy.
Over on Spector's Facebook page, he wrote up a heartfelt letter reflecting on his time working on Epic Mickey. You can read excerpts from the letter below:
"[Junction Point Studios] had a good eight year run. I got to work with some amazing people on some amazing projects. I've had some of the most magical times of my life, fulfilling several life-long dreams. I've gotten to know Disney fans and Disney cast members, gotten hands on with Disney's history, walked where Walt walked... "Magical" really is the only word."
"Whatever you think of me, or Junction Point, or Disney or the Disney Epic Mickey games - yes, I know we polarized people! - I'll always look back on the last eight years with nothing but pride. Rarely have I worked with a team more dedicated or harder working. Never have I been part of a game - of anything, really - that touched people at as deep or personal a level as the Epic Mickey games. That's priceless."
Spector also said that while he is excited about the future, he has no idea what is in store, so don't bother asking.
We recently had a chance to sit down with Spector for an episode of Replay where we checked out the game he will very likely be remembered for before Epic Mickey, Deus Ex. You can check out the video below.
