A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan rekindled the magic that made the first three films so special and, in the process, sets the table for an exhilarating adventure aimed at both young and old.
“My name is James B. Jones
Writer, Narrative Designer, and Teller of Tall Tales”
I discovered my life calling fairly early on, when my third grade teacher asked me to write a short story about what I wanted to be when I grew up. Naturally, my answer was "2nd Baseman for the Detroit Tigers." That didn't exactly pan out the way that eight-year-old James had hoped, but it did light a creative fire in me which burns to this day.
In many ways, video games are the wild west of storytelling. We've only scratched the surface of what this medium can do, and already we've seen games elicit emotions from people in ways that no other art form can. I love this medium, and am proud to have worked with countless brilliant men and women to bring countless stories and worlds to life.
I am, at heart, a slinger of words and a teller of tales. I've spent my entire adult life building worlds and crafting narratives to tell stories both new and familiar. This is what I live to do, and I remain thankful for each and every day that I can continue to do it. Plus it gives the voices in my head a place to play - which is nice.
