Yeah, That Cancelled Star Wars Game Looked Pretty Cool

Brazilian artist Bruno Werneck works at Filmpaint studio, where he's been able to contribute to some of the world's biggest video game and movie projects.

I'm not kidding around when I say biggest, either. In games, he's worked on Titanfall and the Mass Effect series, while in Hollywood his stuff has been used in Star Trek: Into Darkness and Thor.

Filmpaint also worked on Lucasarts' cancelled 1313; you can see some images of that below, showing everything from a very Blade Runner take on Coruscant to a...Hoth train station.

You can see more of Bruno's work at his personal site and ArtStation page.

    Coruscant looks gorgeous! Actually all the art does but that city planet especially, captures just how I'd imagine it feels to live down in the higher lower levels

    Well we can all thank George Lucas' meddling for this one being cancelled. And for Lucasarts itself going down the tube.

    Nice work George. You haven't lost your touch at all. Said noone ever in the last 20 years.

      Don't blame George. April 3, 2013, it was announced that The Walt Disney Company had closed down LucasArts and ceased internal development of all their projects, including Star Wars 1313. It was Disneys decision. Not George Lucas or Lucas Arts decision.

        And it wasn't a bad one. Lucas Arts has been consistently dropping the ball for over a decade. The game looked fantastic and this concept art is awesome, but so far we've only seen Star Wars locations with (then) next-gen graphical power and hand drawn concept art. It'd be hard to make either of those things look bad.
        If past projects are anything to go by 1313 would have looked great in photos but felt relatively uninspired on a design level. I definitely would have brought it and wish Disney had of kept going with it, but I certainly don't blame them for shutting down Lucas Arts.

        I mean I loved Lucas Arts but right now it'd be like complaining if Microsoft shutdown Rare. The studios I think of when people say Lucas Arts and Rare haven't existed for a long, long time.

        When Lucasarts first shut down, there was a lot of info about how they ran. I don't have a link to the specific article, but I recall clearly that when Lucas visited the studio, he would make comments about the direction the game was going in, and they would have to action those changes.

        Even if it meant complete rewrites and starting again. Have a google around if you're curious. He had a finger in every pie. The studio went down because of his influence and inability to sit back and let people do their job.

          I've posted a direct link and there are other articles stating that this decision was 100% unequivocally Walt Disney's. Have zero to do with George Lucas other than his decision to sell his IP. That is the beginning and end of his involvement of the cancelling of 1313.

            If you say so. But from what I've read, I don't agree.

              What have you read and where? I'm not trying to get in your face but you're saying one thing and not providing a single shred of evidence rather just opinion and conjecture. If I'm wrong, link me to the article where it supports your side and I'll read it so that we both have informed educated opinions on the subject.

                Sorry, I don't care enough to do that. You'll just have to live with not changing my mind :P

                Have a google around if you're curious. I think it was an article by wired. It was quite interesting.

                  It's not about changing minds or opinions. You're wrongfully blaming someone. It comes down to integrity of yourself. I don't blame people if they're not involved and I don't blame someone unless I have facts/evidence to support that statement. If I'm proven wrong, great! Then I have learnt something I didn't know before.

                  Also: http://www.wired.com/2013/04/lucasarts-disney/

                  Again, Walt Disney shut 1313 down. Please do not wrongfully accuse people of actions even if said actions are minor, petty or irrelevant. But this is just advice and I have no authority anyway.

                Integrity? Really? It's the internet dude. It's not like you were there either, you're just linking to articles written by someone else. How does me doing the same prove anything? It's still conjecture, albeit slightly educated conjecture and we'll never know the absolute truth.

                So I'm sorry but all I can say again is according to what I've read, I don't agree with you. And no I don't have the link because I think it's pointless to produce one. They're all just opinions when you get down to it.

                I hope that's not a problem. We can disagree about stuff and still get along.

                But, think about it this way. Why did Disney shut the studio down? Because it was a bad investment. Why was it a bad investment? Because it was run poorly, unprofitable and they made bad decisions. Who was in charge of the decision making process? You can see where I'm going with this.

    To be fair, The Force Unleashed 1 and 2 had some amazing art too guys, the gameplay though is what counts... a game can look as amazing as it wants, if there's a lack of controls and fun (historically this has been the case in most SW games) then there's no real loss.

    A moment of silence for the ridiculous amount of work that would have been thrown in the bin thanks to Disney "re-evaluating existing projects in order to prioritise the new IP direction".
