Star Wars 1313’s Violence “Is For Adults, Not Psychopaths”

Posted By | On 07th, Aug. 2012


In conversation with Official XBox Magazine, Star Wars 1313 creative director Dominic Robilliard offered his view on this violent video game trailer at E3 2012:

It was interesting seeing all of the ultra-violence at this year’s E3. I feel that responsibility escalates with the fidelity. When you can render characters that look like the ones in our game – and other games – you get to this realism level where you really don’t want to encourage that kind of thing. Seeing that kind of reaction from gamers… It may well be human nature, but you don’t want to put content out there that pushes those buttons.

Which fits very much in tone with a remark Sid Meier made many years ago about how violence in video games can only go so far beyond shock value.

But what is Star Wars 1313 if not a more violent, mature Star Wars game? VFX supervisor Kim Libreri stated.

It’s for adults, not for psychopaths.

Which, speaking as a psychopath, is disappointing.
