The first public viewing of Star Wars: 1313 isn’t in a room full of press waiting to see what’s next for LucasArts. It’s just me…and the team. A collaborative effort from the teams at LucasArts, Lucasfilm Animation, Industrial Light and Magic, and Skywalker Sound, 1313 is the first internally developed Star Wars project since The Force Unleashed 2. With producers, creative directors, PR and more from the project standing around me as the lights raise after the 1313 E3 demo, I found myself looking into the anxious faces of people awaiting judgment. And judge them I did — as a gamer, as a critic and as a hardcore Star Wars fan.
Star Wars: 1313 has all the potential to be the best video game the franchise has seen in years.
