This project began as a simple curiosity back around March, 2011. When it began, it was little more than Jotaf's tutorial. Basically the player could walk around, kill rats, and loot potions. While @Star Wars will always have its roots planted in Jotaf's tutorial, the game has ballooned far beyond those simpler days. It now features a complete equipment system, saving & loading, special enemy properties, and, is of course, set in the Star Wars universe instead of a generic fantasy one.
The primary influences towards @Star Wars include: Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, due to the developers' ability to seemingly master mechanics; UnAngband, because Andrew Doull is a very interesting person and is the primary reason I decided to start a blog; Cataclysm, because not only is Whales a great developer, he's fantastic when it comes to interacting with players; Star Wars D6 (by West End Games), for inspiring me to implement the D6 system and for generally creating a good game; Jeff Vogel, the other reason I decided to start a blog; David Ploog, he may not be a programmer or artist, but he has a fantastic design sense. There's probably many other influences, but these are the few I can think of off the top of my head and without getting overly cheesy.
