In the vast universe of Star Wars fandom, a recent phenomenon has taken the internet by storm. A fan mock-up of a video game based on the hit series “The Mandalorian” has fans on the edge of their seats, yearning for a game that, for now, exists only in the realm of imagination. This tantalizing concept, born from the creative mind of Twitter user and EA DICE UI technical designer GavMakesGames, has sparked a wildfire of excitement and longing that’s spreading faster than the Millennium Falcon in hyperdrive.
A Dream in Pixels
GavMakesGames has been “back at it again,” creating mock-ups for games that don’t exist as part of his UX/UI art and design practice. His latest creation? An animated title screen and a series of fictitious screenshots for a game he’s dubbed “The Mandalorian: Way of the Warrior.” In this imagined third-person adventure game, players would step into the boots of The Mandalorian himself, Din Djarin.
A Closer Look at the Mock-Up
The mock-up isn’t just a title screen. It’s a tantalizing glimpse into a game that fans are already desperate to play:
- Character customization menus
- The Mandalorian standing on a brightly lit alien planet
- A menu screen set on the Ewok’s forest moon of Endor
The concept went viral in the blink of an eye, racking up thousands of likes and retweets and sparking conversations across the internet. As Reddit user cdawg_66 put it, “I’d give anything for a game like this.” Another user, SeiTyger, added, “This hurt to look at, not because I don’t like it, but because I like it so much.”
Hope on the Horizon?
While “The Mandalorian: Way of the Warrior” may remain a dream, Star Wars fans aren’t entirely out of luck. Ubisoft is currently developing “Star Wars: Outlaws,” an open-world game set between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” Players will take on the role of a scoundrel, navigating the galaxy during one of its most tumultuous periods.
In addition, a more mysterious game is in the works from Amy Hennig and Dominic Robilliard, the director of the infamously cancelled “Star Wars 1313.” While details are scarce, it’s known that the game followed the adventures of Boba Fett, a character with ties to the Mandalorian culture, as he undertook bounty hunting missions on Coruscant.
