Actually, he never wanted to give up his silence on behind-the-scenes reports, but sometimes one must break traditions:

"Maybe my personal life experience that I've previously not publicly shared, illuminate life in game development a bit more. I was not in the office when Disney acquired Lucas October 30, 2012th I got a text message, as I sat in the hospital waiting for my wife. I was deep in the SW1313-pre-production, we were there for a routine ultrasound early to our second baby. The Disney thing caused us wrinkles. Especially when a little later the ultrasound showed not only the heartbeat of the baby, but of twins. It feels a bit like as if you are drowning, and someone hands you a baby.

Where do you see a very cool Star Wars game that was canceled tragically, my memories are more involved in it and my thoughts about the last months of SW1313 development not only memories of a game that it could have been. "

Each game developers have such personal stories, but Worch wants to make clear that the players next time might think of those whose lives have dedicated themselves to the game:

natural "This applies to 100% for non-game developers. Life experiences shape our memories. "
