Turn Your Phone Into a Lightsaber and Try to Escape a Star Destroyer in This New Game From Google

lightsaber escape game from google turns your phone into a lightsaber

I hope you didn’t need to get anything done for the rest of the day, because you’re about to be too busy fighting Stormtroopers.

Lightsaber Escape is a new game/experience built by Google that turns your smartphone, in combination with Chrome on your computer, into a lightsaber. Once you pair and calibrate your device, you’re off on a quest to escape a Star Destroyer filled with Stormtroopers. They’re surprisingly good shots.

Can you make it out in one piece?




Someone Re-Cut the Star Wars VII Trailers Into What May be Their Chronological Order

This is just Mike V‘s speculation, but it’s a pretty compelling timeline for the film. If you’re avoiding potential spoilers turn away, but for those who like to speculate, here’s Mikes theory:

– Poe Dameron (with BB-8) is sent by Leia to Jakku to find Rey.

– Kylo Ren and The First Order arrive on Jakku. They attack a village and Poe is captured. BB-8 escapes.

– Poe is brought to the Star Destroyer, Finalizer, that is in orbit of Jakku.

– Kylo Ren tortures Poe and uses the Force to extract information from him.

– Finn witnesses Poe being tortured. Having a crisis of conscience, Finn decides to help free Poe (Poe’s blood is on Finn’s helmet). Finn ends up with Poe’s jacket.

– Finn and Poe both flee in separate TIE fighters, but Finn’s TIE Fighter takes damage and crash lands on Jakku.

– Rey is going about her day, scavenging from the remains of the Star Destroyer, Inflictor. She encounters BB-8.

– Kylo Ren regroups with the rest of the First Order to witness the test fire of their new superweapon, Star Killer Base.

– Rey and BB-8 eventually encounter Finn.

– The First Order attack the trio and they then are aided by Han Solo and Chewbacca.

– The group uses the Millennium Falcon to escape Jakku.

– The group formally meet each other and then go to Takodana to meet Maz Kanata in her castle.

– Maz Kanata senses that Rey is Force sensitive and discusses this with her.

– The First Order is made aware of the groups location and attacks Maz Kanata’s castle, leaving it in ruins. Kylo Ren looks for Rey and captures her.

– Poe and the Resistance lead a rescue party, which starts the Battle of Takodana. All are rescued except for Rey, who is taken to Starkiller Base.

– The Resistance Regroups. Maz Kanata gives Anakin/Luke’s lightsaber to Leia.

– The Resistance plans a rescue of Rey as well as an attack on Star Killer Base.

– The Battle of Star Killer Base ensues.

– Kylo Ren faces Finn in lightsaber combat and emerges victorious (whether Finn survives remains to be seen).

– Rey finally accepts her Force abilities and faces Kylo Ren.

– Luke senses the “Awakening” of the Force in Rey. (Not really sure this clip goes here but it makes the most sense to me).
