WarCo: The War Correspondent Game

#Games

Mon, Sep 26th, 2011 20:00 by capnasty NEWS

Warco is an unusual first-person shooter game, where the player, rather than holding a gun, shoots with a video camera. The player, in the role of a war news correspondent, films troubled spots around the world first, then edits the video later.

Record dramatic images of war, save them in-game, then edit the results into a compelling frontline TV news story. Beam the results to global audiences on the web. No two WARCO stories will ever be alike. It's an edge-of-seat gaming experience -- and a powerful entry-level training tool for future combat reporters. WARCO is perfectly timed to take advantage of the convergence of games and movies, journalism and online communities, in a world undergoing massive social, geo-political and technological change.

The game is being developed by Defiant Development together with filmmaker Robert Connolly and journalist Tony Maniaty. No due date has been announced.
