Warren Spector, creator of Deus Ex and the upcoming Wii Exclusive Epic Mickey, is exhilarated about the current age of gaming when speaking with VideoGamer saying,
"I think that this is kind of a Golden Age."
"I can make a Wii-exclusive game featuring Mickey Mouse. Someone else can make an all-original $100m MMO. I've got friends who are literally working alone on indie games that have no prospect of profit or commercial success. I've got guys working on iPhone games.
"Even if you think every game on Facebook is no good, hey, the stuff on the Wii is great. And if you think the stuff on the Wii is bad, go to the Independent Game Festival and look at all the stuff that's happening there. And if you think all that's bad, go to the App Store and buy stuff there. It's insane.
"There's something for everyone, which means there's something for every developer to do that's meaningful for them, that will ignite their passion."
There is definitely a plethora of platforms out there that offer just about anything for anyone to enjoy. Spector's own Epic Mickey will be arriving in stores on November 30 for North America, November 26 for the UK and November 25 for the rest of Europe, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
