I am no good at keeping a secret, so it's with great relief that I can finally reveal that the project I've been working on in recent months is this:



To quote the official site:

"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed...casts players as Darth Vader's 'Secret Apprentice' and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope."

One glance at the artwork above will give you an idea of the energy the game is going to contain. Again, to quote the site:

"The Secret Apprentice won't just Force push enemies into walls - he'll Force push enemies through walls. The Secret Apprentice won't just Force grip foes to throw them aside - he'll Force grip them in midair, zap them with lightning, then drop them to the ground to explode like a bomb."

Does that sound cool or what?

Anyway, the game is out in November. The novelization I've written--one of the only places fans will get the "canon" end of the story--will be out shortly beforehand. I'm excited, and very proud to be involved in the Star Wars universe again.

Update: see here for Martin J Livings' excellent riposte. :-)

WOW! I was going to buy the game and book regardless. The game looks awesome and now I'm looking even more forward to reading the book. I assume you are writing it?

I will indeed, and I've edited my post to make that clearer. :-)

In fact, the ms has been delivered and is going through rounds of editorial feedback. It was fantastic fun to write. The game is going to be brilliant. I can't wait to play it myself!

HOLY CRAP! You're working on THAT?

This is the single most highly anticipated Star Wars game since God knows when. Have you seen the tech demos for this thing?

Both myself and a lot of the people I work with are talking about this. Very very damn cool.

I sure have, and much more. It looks absolutely amazing. You won't be disappointed!

That's fantastic Sean! I'm going to blog something at Articulate now, but I'd love to do something more comprehensive closer to the release date. Feel free to drop me a line if you don't hear from me.

Oooooooh. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

That's all I've got to say (well I suppose I should throw in a woo hoo too).

Thanks! I feel like we're standing together at a fireworks display :-)

Goddammit, you're tempting me into buying a novelisation of a video game.

Oh, fun! :) I've always enjoyed your SW novelizations. :)

By the way, do you know what game systems this will be available for? My blasted computer at work won't load the offical site. :-/

It's a next-generation game, but it'll be on lots of different formats, including, I think, PS2. I'm not sure which ones I've heard are locked-down tight or just rumours, so I'd better not say too much...
