Brett Rector, an Assistant Producer for LucasArts' upcoming Force Unleashed title recently updated his blog/diary after having experienced Celebration IV, which was really the team's first experience and interaction with fans regarding the much anticipated title. Here's an excerpt of what Rector had to say:
You might be wondering how Celebration IV fits into the balance of the overall production of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, or maybe how the experience is worthy of a diary entry? As mentioned above it was our chance to view first-hand the excitement that the team is generating through the creation of this game, and more importantly it was our first chance to talk to some of you at the show. Because the team lives with the game day in and day out we sometimes get mired down in the details and forget to enjoy the work that we're doing, and to see the enthusiasm of the young and old alike was inspiring to us. We wanted to say thank you to those who were able to attend Celebration IV and take part in one of the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed fan experiences. As we move ahead with production there will be many other opportunities to have this kind of interaction with you, and at every stage we will be bringing you more and more information that will hopefully continue to pique your interest. Be sure to come back next time as I begin a series of entries that discusses LucasArts' collaboration with Industrial Light and Magic.
