Disney Interactive Studios Seeking Gamers for Playtests

Disney Interactive Studios has set up a website at DisneyPlaytesting.com aimed at recruiting a database of eligible gamers to occasionally visit on site to check out (and play) the latest games the developers are currently working on.

Although the site stipulates that most of its research takes place in Glendale, California, it does note that it has occasional sessions in other locations where subsidiaries are located as well as occasional sessions in other major cities.

In exchange for participating when matching sessions become available, playtesters will receive compensation in way of an ‘incentive,’ such as a complimentary video game, DVD, or other age appropriate swag from their collection. Adults may have the option to receive gift cards in lieu of swag.

Multi-Platform ‘Epic Mickey 2′ Possible Titles, Gameplay Released; Domain Names Registered

Destructoid has reported that one of its readers had been offered an online survey which discusses a sequel for Epic Mickey, tentatively titled Epic Mickey 2. Amongst potential box artwork, possible subtitles such as Epic Mickey 2: Return of the Mad Doctor, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Epic Mickey 2: Mystery on Mean Street were offered up. The gist of the game appears to be co-op play between Mickey Mouse and half-brother Oswald, presumably picking up where the first game ended.

Kinect Disneyland AdventuresAt the Microsoft booth at the Disney D23 Expo booth last week, I had the opportunity to get some time in with the new Disneyland Adventures game for Microsoft Xbox Kinect by Frontier Developments. After seeing the E3 announcements and follow-up gameplay, I had high expectations for this home-away-from-home title and I am pleased to say I did not walk away disappointed.

Jen served as my guide as she pointed out the fundamentals of the game, which you can see in the eight-minute video below.
