During the Star Wars celebration event in London, Visceral Games’ Amy Hennig took the stage to reveal some information about her upcoming Star Wars project. While she didn’t divulge a lot, she did say that her writing process will be similar to her previous work on the Uncharted franchise, which drew cheers from the crowd.
The reason [we’re collaborating with Lucasfilm so closely is] we’re writing an original Star Wars story with new characters, locations, tech, creatures, you name it. All of it has to sit authentically alongside the stuff people know now.
The process that I’ve been using is really similar to what I did with Uncharted, to be honest. If you’re trying to re-create that classic pulp action adventure experience, you need to deconstruct the films so you know how to reconstruct them in an interactive context as gameplay.
Hennig went on to say that the end goal is to give players the feeling of having played a Star Wars film. We were also treated to some concept art, which you can check out in the gallery below. “With the few images that we’re allowed to show, we did breadcrumb a lot of clues in there. So I would invite people to scrutinise them, speculate away, because we stuck some stuff in there,” she said.
