The Occupation (on all platforms)

This game looks very interesting. If you were ever into L.A.Noire, this is an investigative game like it with added stealth, heard footsteps, eavesdropping, and much more. Just saw this trailer gameplay last night. Comes out March 5th. It also plays in real time so one hour in real life is one hour in game. Not sure how that plays out with actual gameplay though but that also sounds very interesting. Not many games use actual real time.

10 minute gameplay trailer.

I think anyone that is a member of this forum would likely be interested in this game. I know that I am.

Yeah, I saw the same clip last night as well!
Looks really interesting, but I don’t think it’s something I’d play. Seems like it’d be a bit time consuming and confusing with all the story threads there might be to follow.

I’ll pass on it for now and wait until it’s cheap as I’m not really into first person games but if you get it and would stream it, let me know. I’ll definitely come watch.

Gotta update my article. The game and press page did not mention Steam at all. Thanks @Hatch

I’ll probably check it out if it gets decent reviews/buzz. I feel like mystery games need to walk a difficult line. I want a lot of freedom to investigate and solve the crime without being guided too much, but I also don’t want to be frustrated and they can’t let me solve the crime too early. Are there any games that do this well? I’m wondering if it’s possible to get through the scene/sequence shown in this preview without learning anything of value, if I were an idiot… or is the outcome fairly pre-determined? Do I get to decide what to do next?

@immadummee47, thanks for the heads up on this. I contacted White Paper Games and they gave me a copy for review. I will try to have the review out in the next few days.
