Google Makes A Star Wars Game – Turns You Into A Jedi
If you’re really, really excited about the imminent release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and just can’t wait for the movie to be released, Google has a new interactive web game you might enjoy. It’s called Lightsaber Escape, and allows you to fulfill your lightsaber fantasies to your heart’s desire (well, some of your fantasies). The experience is a collaborative project between Google, Disney, Lucasfilm, and Industrial Light & Magic.
Players must first go to the Lightsaber Escape website on a desktop, where they’ll be given a link to visit on mobile. To set up, you’ll be told to “calibrate your phone,” which basically involves holding it vertically, like a lightsaber. Then, your desktop screen will show you standing in a Star Destroyer, ready to fight off a rowdy group of stormtroopers. As you move your phone, the lightsaber will move as well. The only way to escape is by waving your phone wildly at your computer. Ah, the future.
