Obsidian Entertainment - Pitches New Star Wars Game - Interview @ RPS
Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an preview for an interview with Feargus Urquhart, the CEO for Obsidian Entertainment. In it tells RPS that:
“We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It’s the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it’s Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK. You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story.”......“We also latched onto it because it has elements people remember, but not the stories. It can just completely not involve [the movies]. It can tease them, but nothing else.”
The preview blurb for the interview with Feargus Urquhart signs off on this note:
Keep an eye out for the full interview – about the future of RPGs, the PC, and a certain post-apocalyptic series that I guess a few people like – very soon.
