Behind the scenesEdit
Epic Mickey is the first installment in the eponymous series series. It was released in November of 2010.
The game spawned a great wealth of concepts in production that were either abandoned or altered beyond recognition; in the latter category, the antagonist was originally supposed to be the Phantom Blot, who was revamped and rewritten so deeply into the game's Blot that the name was eventually changed to "Shadow Blot". For unclear reasons, the graphic novel retelling of the game still uses “Phantom Blot”.
