Gold members of XBox Live can download the XBox 360 version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. This is the game I worked on for two years while at LucasArts. I am quite happy with how the demo turned out, proud of my contributions as well as everyone else’s. We all had lots of challenges to overcome but the demo speaks for itself that some amazingly talented and dedicated people helped make it happen.
I didn’t expect to see the Grip Tutorial in it, but it makes sense. I contributed significantly to the gamepay scripting for that, along with another gameplay programmer, game designer, artists, voice actors, sound designers and… yeah, it’s amazing the amount of work and collaboration that goes into a tightly focused tutorial level like that.
Here’s hoping SW:TFU brings lots of joy and excitement to others when the full game comes out this September 16th, 2008.
