This talk will take attendees through the process of creating a modern metroidvania in a galaxy far far away. Lead Level Designer Jeff Magers will walk attendees through how the designers at Respawn approached the most storied entertainment IP in the world using a gameplay-first methodology. From determining the lock and key abilities to mapping out player progression; from initial paper planning to last minute layout overhauls, Magers will speak to the challenges, successes, and lessons learned by the Jedi: Fallen Order team as they developed a new game IP and built up a 3rd person action adventure team from scratch, all while working with the Lucas Group at Disney to add an authentic story into the well established Star Wars Universe.
