Star Wars Episode 1: Racer (LucasArts, 1999)

We have cited so much here the remarkable work of Peter Chan that we could almost associate his name with a drinking game :D

But how could one refuse to discover more? <3
For comparison, an artwork by Doug Chiang for the film.
And the Boonta race ILM production map.
I love maps so... Jon, I love you. Again, that's gold and it belongs in a museum.

Now we have the missing link <3 the movie.
The Q-tips crowd goes wild.
I'm sad that legendary modelmaker Lorne Peterson is not a LucasArts' Racer secret giant character. ^^
And here's ILM using the models to create CGI.

The scene was impressive in the movie, but what Jon Knoles' team has done in the same year was utterly fantastic. A true feat, and still impressive in 2020.

At last, the Switch is coming home.

I could try old LucasArts games I already have on PC, who knows.
What a strange feeling to start from a platform (PC) with 1800 games and end up with a console and a single game (Animal Crossing, in bundle). Reminds me of when I had the NES, in another life ^^
It’s for my son, in fact. A Nintendo for the same birthday I had the NES 🥰

If you want to advise me the best Switch games for a 8 years old, you’re welcome. Minecraft, Mario Kart, Zelda and Cities:skyline already planned, of course.

I am disappointed that I did not publish 20 pictures yesterday to reach THX 1138 😂

Thanks to everyone who followed me and liked my tweets. An unofficial adventure that will continue until the release of my book and the exhaustion of my pictures. 2 more years?
It was also a pleasure to meet so many people to whom I wanted to pay tribute.

Now, I plan to publish excerpts from my book, reworked for the web, before devoting an entire month to writing - probably with a "livemaking-of" aspect to it. It will be for November or December.

From 1982 to 2013, how many Lucasfilm Games & LucasArts logos were used? Maybe more than you think.

Thread👇 Image
The first dates back to when the Games Division of Lucasfilm Computer Division was mostly an experiment ahead of its time. It is therefore a simple alteration of the Lucasfilm logo. ImageImage
For several years, while the group was developing games for other publishers (Atari, Activision, EA...), there weren't even any Lucasfilm Games logos on the boxes. ImageImageImageImage

[After LucasArts]
Visceral Games' Project Ragtag (canceled in 2017).

To @MinnMaxShow , producer @zachulon again told this story of bad decisions made by EA (then)executives, who killed this very ambitious Star Wars game supervised by Amy Hennig (Uncharted).

A sad story.
@MinnMaxShow @zachulon "The sequence of events was like - 'hey, we have a studio with their own engine who make really high quality single-player games - the Dead Space series - and we're going to take that studio, move them to Frostbite and have them make a Battlefield game'. OK, I'm fine with that."
@MinnMaxShow @zachulon "But we had a lot of people at the studio who were experts on narrative and single-player games and those people left. And that's fine - some of them went to Crystal Dynamics and worked on the Avengers game. That kind of stuff happens."

Ragtag artwork:

There is Wedge Antilles in #StarWarsSquadrons , set after the events of Return of the Jedi.

The entire game will be playable in PSVR from beginning to end and will support crossplay across PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

It will be released on October 2, 2020.
On Pc, it will also support VR, as the game is featuring first-person starship action.

@MitchyD (Battlefront II, 2017) and @Joanna_Berry (Star Wars: The Old Republic. , 2011) wrote the campaign (which should be a few hours long).
@MitchyD @Joanna_Berry Maps confirmed: Yavin Prime, Galitan moon.

You can modify your ship and... redirect power between its different systems? As in X-Wing flight sim?! <3

5v5 online battles, and low price (not 60 dollars then).
