I meant game genre with Avengers.
Continuing on...The @KingMickey thread in question can be found here: https://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/kingdom-hearts-iv-imagineering-a-video-game.501400/
The above thread is an ancient and treasured relic of the past, if you will. If you follow my forthcoming look into an HD Legend of Zelda, you'll be quick to notice just how much inspiration I have borrowed from King's magnificent style of writing. This will be as detailed a look into the game(s) as I'll get out, so please, do enjoy.
The Legend of Zelda: The Hero of Time CollectionThe home screen of your Nintendo Switch comes onto the television. Amid the familiar display of Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 and other modern classics, we recognize a classic portrayal of our nostalgic childhood:
The incredible "poster" for Ocarina of Time has been updated and re-illustrated for the cover art of The Hero of Time Collection. Likewise, the glowing eyes of Majora's Mask now loom in the background of Ganon's Castle (pictured right); the bizarre Clock Tower of Termina looms near Hyrule Castle, another spectacular addition to the classic piece. We click the icon, readied for a return to a timeless adventure.
The famous intro of Ocarina of Time has been re-created once more in full HD and musical orchestration. However, whereas the original intro to OoT would end with a glimpse at an in-game cutscene (the Spirit Temple), the intro to our Hero of Time Collection continues "through the log" and into yet another famous intro:
Also remastered in HD, the intro to Majora's Mask is perhaps even more ominous and foreboding than before in a hyper-realistic setting with a full orchestral score. For instance, the horrific Moon actually appears to pierce its fiery gaze into our very soul... Nevertheless, we press + and access the menu screen.
The famous "Great Fairy's Fountain" plays. There are several options on the Main Screen, but three in particular share the same title: New Game. After our selection, we name our file and select our level of difficulty:
Hylian Quest: The standard level of difficulty; a sturdy blend of challenging and easy.
Hero's Quest: The hardest level of difficulty. No recovery hearts can be found in the overworld. Enemies deal double damage. It is a given that one will achieve a "Game Over" screen at some point.
We select the Hylian Quest level of difficulty. After selection, the next screen comes up: the Prologue to our Hero of Time Collection. A black screen comes up and the following is read across the screen:
In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule... Long have I served as the guardian spirit... I am known as the Deku Tree...Our hero, Link, is seen sleeping in his dark treehouse.
The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy...Link shivers and adjusts. He dreams of Hyrule Castle Town in the midst of a dark thunderstorm. The drawbridge lowers for a horse, carrying a frightened girl and an armored woman across. The girl looks back at Link with a tragic look in her eye before she gallops out of sight. Link turns to see a horrific, sinister man from atop a black horse. He raises his hand toward a visibly frightened Link.
The dream ends.
Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither....
What the!! I'm so glad to have heard from you haha. It's been so long! Hope to hear more from you. Admittedly, I'm not around here as much anymore either, but I do what I can to keep up with the hobby.Oh my gosh, wow what a blast from the past. I don’t think I’ve read through any of these threads in YEARS. Now I’m gonna read through it all and think oh my imagineering days of old, lol. Thanks for bringing this up, MEW.
Indeed. Introduce us to Oswald Waste World, the land of Oswald’s true dreams and ambitions. Bring in the steampunk Chimera aesthetic from the concept art for the overall look of the lands. Wasteland Park’s sister park, Wasteland Adventure, would be a cool destination as well. How about we tie the game into KH; it turns out Blotlings are the incomplete materials that make up a heart, body, and soul. And then, Oswald’s a nobody, right? His Heartless would be such a metal villain. Manipulating The Mad Doctor, Xanatos, etc.A reboot or remastered of the Epic Mickey series, but in better hands?
“Desire for All That is Lost” intensifies.A better version of Epic Mickey reminds me of when Oswald was going to be the villain.
I still would like to see that. The concept art was cool.
Nope, the unmade version from 1939 by David Hall:You mean 50s Alice?
Yeah, that would be a cool design for a level. Speaking of which, wouldn’t it be cool for Mickey to be able to take different level paths depending on his actions? And access different levels? Like we could represent more attractions this way, with Mickey being able to, for instance, visit Wonderland or the clock tower? Boss battles could also be more intense, similar to games like Metal Gear Rising, Gunstar Heroes, Alien Soldier, etc.
Not sure if Marvel would work with Epic Mickey, since its mostly based around lost characters, concepts, and ideas pre-1967.Yeah, that would be a cool design for a level.

We could have the clock tower battle have another form after being initially taken down, Namor holding hostage to a submarine and starting to use it as a weapon as players hop from sub to sub, etc.
