can't believe it's finally happening

Like many of us when we were kids we wanted to be like Luke skywalker or obi one kinobi, but like all of us, we do not live in a galaxy far far away. There might be another way though. With all the open world RPGs out there how is there not a good one for Star Wars? I have decided to take matters into my own hands and write a story in the star wars universe that will fit inside a RPG video game. I am currently looking into talking with Disney if I am able to do this. If not then there might have to be a compromise on the name or some other parts. I need your help. I am not a very good programmer, and I'm an even worst artist. I want to put this project into the hands of professionals, but in order to do that I need money to hire them. This was my dream as a kid I hope you can share my same compassion, thank you.

There are many people out there that have the wrong image when they think about this game so I will go into deep detail as much as i can to get people more excited about this. As I know there are other "very good" games over Star Wars, but within the bounds of good taste, I believe that these RPG's over Star Wars have not reached their full potential. I do not feel immersed in these games. I am not talking about a 1995/2005 game that could be created in a month or two. I am talking about a Star Wars RPG that will completely blow people away; like "Fallout 4", or "The Witcher 3" did. These RPG's set the benchmark of how the future of RPG's should look, and they are a good blueprint to go on. I want to make something that is like this in some respects, but goes even further. It will have the graphics of "Battlefront" or better with the feel of "The Witcher 3".

The game and story will also have a lot of choice. You will be able to choose which side you would like to be on. You can be evil and reside on the Darkside and rule the galaxy as you wish, or you could also bring peace about the galaxy. Both in their own respects have their perks. Speaking of perks: Like "Fallout 4" there might or might not be perks in the game. At least not the same as they are in "Fallout". I do not want to give away much about the story, but I will give away that you do not start out as a Jedi, but later become one. As you progress your skills get better as your ability to use the force. It is very exciting that I have already gotten backers. I will be providing updates every couple of days, and answering any questions that you might have. I am still answering others so please be patient.

Also no promises, but the backers that give for the $60 reward will get the game a day or two before original release.

- Thank you, Devin Tripp

So some random 20-year old guy is going to make a game using the hottest IP right now?

I'm a big proponent of fan games but trying to secure funding to create a fangame is the fastest way to get your project shut down. Sounds like a joke, really, but I haven't read the proposal.

11 Backers, $406, average of $36.91 per backer. Those are some pretty good numbers. I'm calling it now: this baby's getting funded.

I think I'll hang on to my money, thanks.

Yeah this isn't happening in any shape or form.

Although a modern Star Wars RPG in the vein of the Witcher or Fallout would be glorious.

All of my lols to this dude...

I'm baffled that he even has $400 and I can only assume (hope?) that this is a very intentional joke.

Sounds promising.
