The Occupation occupies a very niche genre. Its developer, White Papers Games, describes it as a fixed-time investigative thriller, a genre so exclusive that it marks The Occupation as an intriguingly unique video game prospect. How best then to inform the player of what to expect? Why, a ten minute gameplay trailer would do just the trick, and as if by luck here it is:
The player takes on the role of a journalist with the challenging task of investigating a controversial and sinister political act, one that threatens to erode the civil liberties of the population. You’ll have to question and interrogate those involved and gather evidence in order to uncover the truth, but with events proceeding in real-time – 24 style – every decision you make will count.
Consider me intrigued.
The Occupation is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 5th, 2019.
