Update! Giveaway closed! Congrats to Lucas.
Disclosure: We were invited to the Disney Infinity Hack-a-thon event and received a Disney Infinity Starter Pack for review. This post represents my unbiased opinion. Disney Interactive’s latest game Disney Infinity is set to be released, August 18, 2013. The Dancing Hotdogs family was invited to preview the game before it’s release for the Nintendo WiiU and speak with the developers of the game about the experience of working on one of Disney’s most anticipated games. Here is our video from the event: Disney Infinity combines the popular use of figurines and powerbases similar to the Skylander’s video game series with the whimsy and magic of all the Disney properties. Players are able purchase figures that when placed on the Disney Infinity base is instantly transported to the game and playable. Each figure has totally unique abilities and come from a wide variety of films including live action movie characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean all the way to many of the animated favorites from Disney/Pixar films. Straight out of the box players are able to play multiple worlds based on popular films including Pirates of the Caribbean, The Incredibles and Monsters University. In addition, various play sets will be released later on which contain worlds of their own. Already planned are a Cars play set and a Lone Ranger set. Each of these sets contains 2 figures and other game pieces necessary to play. On top of the game play, players are able to take the tools of the developers and create their own games and levels within the games sandbox. This area gives players free reign to use their imaginations as well as a treasure trove of various famous Disney props/scenes and background which are fully interactive. These then can be displayed publicly in a Disney online community. Don’t worry parents, Disney is constantly monitoring this community to ensure that all content is appropriate, and nothing can be shared unless it has Disney’s OK. On top of that special Disney profiles must be create adding an extra layer of protection for any children playing the game. Remember a child can only access the online content or post the online content if a parent allows them. In addition, to the basic game and base, Disney also plans to release new figures as well as Power Discs in the coming months. The power discs provide special power ups to each character playing. These discs are going to sold for $5 and are randomly packaged. Each of the discs can be combined in a multitude of ways resulting in an endless of possibilities.
