The official Twitter account for the Penny Arcade Expo has announced that this year’s PAX Prime keynote speaker will be none other than Warren Spector, creator of the classic Deus Ex and Thief games, and current driving force behind the upcoming Disney Epic Mickey. Spector’s no stranger to the keynoting game, having spoken at GDC and other conferences before. We got to talk to him back at E3 this year, and he’s right in the thick of Epic Mickey, thinking about accessible gameplay and how to build very famous and licensed characters into his game in a fun way.

Spector will also be at Comic-Con later this week, speaking at a panel with writer Peter David about bringing Mickey and his less famous friends to life in the video game medium. PAX Prime is going down the first week of September up in Seattle, WA, and tickets are still (barely) available.
