Lucas Arts :: Star Wars Galaxies - Jump To Light Speed


Man, this was one of the fastest most complex sites yet.  3 weeks/3 weekends of 20hr days straight.  This site took everything I had to get it done on time. 

The site:

The images:
Star Wars Galaxies screenshots and comps

But the payoff was well worth it!  There are some outstanding features we came up with for this 2nd version (we did the first version as well).  Lucas Arts wanted to stream line this new version to be 56k friendly and FAST.  And with good reason.  They had TONS of images/information they wanted to get out on the site. 

Along with this we found out they were launching the new game update "Jump to Light Speed"!  WHOOO HOOO!  bout' time we be flyin' in such a game as this.  Now, I'm not an MMO player, I'm strictly first person/shooter/action and only have an hour at a time to play.  But after seeing all the screens and video from JTLS, I was nearly begging for a copy.  It looked KILLLLLLER.

Tech stuff:

  • Bandwidth profiled.  Music, images - you name it.
  • Hundreds of dynamically loaded content
  • Authentic John Williams SW scores to support each scene
  • Completely managed by Lucasarts (images/video/content)
  • Relevent Links for all images in Gallery.
  • All content is deeplinkable

I'm digging up some of the comp artwork for the site and putting out some of the working files we pulled ideas from that weren't released with the site.  Hope you enjoy!
