Are you stuck at home, school or the office NOT watching Star Wars because it isn’t out yet?
Do you have a laptop or desktop and a smartphone all running Google Chrome browser?
Would you rather be destroying Stormtroopers with a lightsaber right now?
I think it’s safe to say that the fine folk at Google are almost as excited for Star Wars: The Force Awakens as you are, and they’ve released an awesome new FREE Chrome Experiment called Lightsaber Escape.
To play, simply visit the Lightsaber Escape site on your PC, where you will be given a custom url to visit on your phone’s Chrome browser. No software needed! After syncing up your phone and your PC, you flick on your lightsaber with a button on your smartphone, wave the phone like a lightsaber, and deflect blaster shots from Stormtroopers on the PC screen.
The game is fun, and easy to play. It reminds me a lot of playing the Wii, except with awesome lightsabers instead of tennis racquets. I won’t spoil the experience for you, but know that it’s short, and you can easily experience it in a coffee break.
Just tell your boss the galaxy is at stake.
