Though Ultimate Games S.A. have been releasing lots of simulator games – from across the tonal spectrum, ranging from outrageously daft to serious recreations of actual, real world activities – they’ve just announced the release of a city surveillance
simulator on the PC which looks very different to any they’ve previously published.
We live in a vastly monitored world, our movements increasingly recorded and scrutinised, usually with the justification that it’s for our own safety. In City Eye, the players will take on the role of a CCTV operator responsible for ensuring citizens’ safety – and there’s no suggestion that there’ll be any nefarious undertones to the surveillance you’ll be in charge of. It’s an intriguing, somewhat original premise – and according to the press release, ‘the developers are preparing a diverse gameplay experience, full of unique solutions’.
Judging by the game’s trailer, taking control of cameras to observe and deal with crimes looks like it’s going to be a unique gameplay experience, despite the potentially dark subject matter.
A free prologue of the game is now available on Steam. City Eye is to be released in the second half of 2020, with a potential console release to follow later.
The free prologue can be downloaded from Steam here.
