That bonkers unofficial open world Star Wars Kickstarter has been canceled

A passionate fan or an elaborate troll

A few days ago, on a PC far far away, someone wanted to create an open world Star Wars game. Note that this is a completely unofficial project that would have instantly been swallowed by Disney once it got wind of it. It was an insane notion for sure, but it managed to garner over $18,000 in tributes (which reminds me of that potato salad thing that I hope no one brings up again). Now, three days later, it’s cancelled — ironically, not by the hand of Disney.

You can read the entire meltdown/cancellation notice below, and Game Informer even had a neat interview with him. Godspeed, “Devin.”

Very selfish, and very ironic. Disney was created because Walt Disney had a dream, was it not? I find it ironic because on a lot of the news and the forums there was a quote from something I said. It read ‘I have talked to Disney, and they have informed me to contact Lucas arts. I believe most of you said quote that’s like a father telling the kid to go ask their mother because they do not want to deal with them.

Yet I received emails from random people basically telling their dad to send me to timeout because they don’t like me. Secondly, I am taking this kick starter down myself. Disney has not contacted me to tell me to shut it down for those of you who think you own Disney. I am taking this kick starter down, because I very much respect Disney, and I do not want this to get to big. I love all their pirates of the Caribbean movies. I always wanted to be captain jack, but I think Mr. Depp is to good to be replaced. I have faith that somewhere in the future, a game like the one I described, will be made by Disney/EA/LucasFilms/Bioware or whoever is going to do it.

Thirdly I know my spelling and grammar sucks, but all you need is the force and you will do ok in life. I wrote the entire thing on my phone while in Childress Texas with a JUAN bar. So I did not care for spelling mistakes, because of that and I really didn’t think I’d actually be doing this. As many of you pointed out I am highly unqualified. The point of this whole Kickstarter is to not let your dreams be dreams. Don’t say tomorrow just do it.
