Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Features A Very Sweet Tribute To A Dev’s Late Father

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out now, and Star Wars fans have plenty of reason to be excited about it. The new game has earned strong reviews, and is being regarded as the best Star Wars game in a long time. Now, as players dig into the game, it’s worth being on the lookout for Easter eggs–although you’d be hard pressed to find one sweeter than this.

Level designer Nicholas G. Cameron worked on the game at Respawn, and was responsible for designing a certain “iconic snowy planet.” Now, in a series of tweets, he has shared some details about one of the planet’s echoes, and what it really means. Echoes are little pieces of scattered lore that you can find throughout the game, which give you some insight into what has happened previously in the areas you’re exploring.

The echo in question pays tribute to Master Mar Ti Kam’Ron, and reads, “A memorial placed at a meditation site used by the venerable Jedi Master Mar Ti “Bucky” Kam’Ron. He returned here many times over the course of his life to reflect on his adventures and achievements.” As Cameron explains in the tweets below, this is a tribute to his late father, Martin Cameron, who passed away in early 2018. Martin worked on Star Wars games himself, with his name appearing in the credits for X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, which he served as an artist on.

The official Twitter account for Respawn Entertainment issued a touching reply as well.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is “canon” within the wider world of Star Wars, which technically makes Mar Ti Kam’Ron a character that officially exists within that world.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you’re not far in yet, be sure to check out our beginner’s tips, and if you haven’t picked the game up for yourself yet, look out for Black Friday deals that will net you a cheaper copy.
