So, there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out. Maybe you haven’t heard; they’ve been really quiet about it. </sarcasm>
I never understood why LucasArts didn’t do a Star Wars adventure game. If you can do an action hero like Indiana Jones in an adventure game setting, you can sure as fuck do Star Wars.
But they didn’t. Instead we got Tie Fighter (a flight sim), Dark Forces (a 3D shooter), and Rebel Assault (god knows what the fuck that’s supposed to be). And I kind of checked out after that initial barrage, but I hear there’s a new Star Wars game out that everyone loves, and it’s a multiplayer shooter again. Yeah, you have fun with that.
Thankfully, someone’s actually doing something about that. His name’s Stacey Davidson, and he’s making an adventure game in the old-school Fate of Atlantis style, but with Star Wars. It’s called Han Solo Adventures.
And it looks great. I hope it does great, too. It’s been in development for a while, but from what I can tell it’s still going strong, and I’m really looking forward to playing it. Keep up with Stacey on his Twitter profile.
