We all know DICE is making the new Battlefront and it has provided for a lot of discussion in our team. We will think they will create a good game. But our team's consent is that they won't deliver the core Battlefront experience. Which we aim to do. For that very reason we have decided to push BattleCry in a direction which will produce a game more closely resembling the Battlefronts we loved.
We're going 2D pixel art isometric rouge like procedural generated real time but with turn based elements become-a-Jedi-via-Midichlorian-injection simulation RPG hybrid.

You will be playing the most-loved, well designed and interestingly written character in the whole Star Wars universe, Jar Jar Binks.

We will utilize the full power Unity's 2D web plugin (always online is the future) renderer to bring alive the procedurally generated universe you always wanted to collect random taxes in, listen to Level 14 political discussions and experience first-hand bureaucracy puzzles on your way to becoming the first Gungan Jedi. Progress can be sped up by totally not pay-to-win in-game real money transactions. We will also be incorporating Facebook friends so everyone can see how good you are at controlling the power of a true Gungan!

On this journey you will of course encounter many different original and evil dangers including Ewoks, Ewoks, more Ewoks and Nazi Zombies. Boring enemies like the Empire, Sith, Rancors are not being included for obvious reasons.

To add some more depth we chose to add survival elements and progress the time a few hundred years until after the universe-wide apocalypse. Again, our single most important goal is to make a game like no-one else has ever seen.

Also, the character you're playing is actually a clone, part of an army Watto ordered to be able to sue every one of them for money because they destroyed stuff in his shop.


I know this is a lot of text. But it is very important for us to make our ambitions clear to you, our precious fans. For anyone getting past reading this (and I hope taking it seriously and trying to understand it's deep core of emotions and Kappa) we have a special treat. Something entirely new to the world. Something which will change humanity as we know it. Something playable.


Cherish your moment of anticipation. This will be your last thought on your death bed.

Sadly, odds are if we attempted to use a signature name like that, we would receive a very warm letter from Disney saying "Nice work! Now cease and desist." The same would likely happen if we popped in Luke or the Force. Courtesy of copyrights, good old Jar Jar probably wont make it in, but Gungans themselves are a possibility! This is another thing that really comes down to what the team has made, and plans to make. So this means we have to sit back and wait to see what gets done and when! As always, I'll see YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!

First person is like what would make it good. 3rd person in the other battlefronts is why it got boring so much

There will be a first person, don't worry, but there will also be a third person view available just like in Battlefront II. You, the player, will have the choice to use either one. As Always, I'll see YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!

Third-person component*
Could just be third-person view for vehicles like in Battlefield 3.
