A few months back, we heard that Warren Spector was busy at work on a game named “Epic Mickey.” We still don’t know much about the project, but now some leaked concept art has surfaced. Also, artist Tony Pulham noted on his resume that it is a Wii game (although that’s still not confirmed) and, better yet, said that it’s still in development. “Epic Mickey” certainly looks like an ambitious title, so we would hope that it isn’t canned. While we wait – and hope – for additional information, you can check out some of the leaked concept art above.

How many gamers can claim that they’ve through a game blind? Well, that’s exactly what one man is attempting, although it’s not by choice. Jordan, blind since birth, is playing through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with help from the YouTube community. According to Jordan, he is able to progress thanks to “very specific, script-stile directions.” It’s definitely great to see him overcome his visual disability and be assisted in his conquest of Ocarina of Time, as many would agree that it is one Zelda title which should not be missed out on.

“My name is Jordan and I have been blind since birth. I have always been a fan of Ocarina of Time, and here I will show videos of me playing through it (and other games such as Castlevania, pokemon and possibly other Zelda’s) to the best of my abilities. To navigate on my Computer I use a program called JAWS. It reads the words to me and allows me to navigate my pc with ease…To type I’ve memorized the keys. Just so you know, I have done all of these bosses MANY times.”

Thanks to Jake for the news tip!
