Epic Mickey (Walt Disney Co)

With video game budgets in the tens of millions of dollars, it’s no wonder that their musical compositions have become as polished as any Hollywood score. With Epic Mickey, a video game that’s set for release Nov. 30, the Walt Disney Co. spared no expense in hiring Jim Dooley, an Emmy Award-winning composer who has created music for “The DaVinci Code,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” and “Pushing Daisies.”

Though Dooley is not featured in the video below, his music is. And singing Dooley’s praises are a number of the game’s developers, including Warren Spector, the creative director, who called Dooley’s work “the best music I’ve ever had in a game. There’s stuff in here that will bring you to tears. I promise.”

Bring on the tissues!
