ABOUT SYSTEM UNDER SURVEILLANCE:

System Under Surveillance (SUS) is an upcoming stealth indie game with adventure and puzzle elements similar to known classics from the 80s and 90s. The game's visuals are also inspired by classic top-down retro games, but in an isometric perspective. In SUS, you will also explore the story trough an interactive pixel art comic book!



STORY SUMMARY:

After a suspicious car chase involving his adoptive mother, Adam finds himself alone in the middle of a dystopian city. He soon discovers that a mysterious governmental organization is after him, without knowing why.

While struggling to escape and survive, Adam finds a quirky cleaning robot labeled TURBO. Despite the name, TURBO is pretty clumsy and slow. Yet, with its big digital heart, the clumsy robot will accompany Adam in his journey, helping him discover the dark truth surrounding the accident.

COMIC-STYLE STORYTELLING:

After a suspicious car chase involving his adoptive mother, Adam finds himself alone in the middle of a dystopian city. He soon discovers that a mysterious governmental organization is after him, without knowing why.

While struggling to escape and survive, Adam finds a quirky cleaning robot labeled TURBO. Despite the name, TURBO is pretty clumsy and slow. Yet, with its big digital heart, the clumsy robot will accompany Adam in his journey, helping him discover the dark truth surrounding the accident.


PREPARE YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITIES:

In SUS you play as Adam and Turbo. You have no power over the enemies, making you completely vulnerable in this environment. Without a combat system, your only chance of surviving is through the stealth mechanics. Be aware of your surroundings, and use the game world and unique abilities of the two characters to evade; trick the enemies, sneak past them, and hide from them. You will go through each level with the goal of finding the truth behind the secret organization chasing you.

SWITCH ANYTIME BETWEEN TWO UNIQUE CHARACTERS:


TURBO, an old and quirky robot, who can:

  • hover above holes and reach new areas;
  • transform into a metallic ball, and travel through tight spaces and pipes to to trick enemies
  • create a powerful electric current by spinning in place, temporarily disabling nearby terminals

Adam, an ordinary yet highly intelligent and resourceful boy, who can:

  • take control of enemies, open doors, disable security systems;
  • use ordinary items to distract enemies;
  • gain power ups and use gadgets to solve minigames and puzzles ;
  • and more...

NO ORDINARY HEALTH SYSTEM:

System Under Surveillance replaces the ordinary health system with a threat level. This system will immerse you in the story, making you feel just like an ordinary boy who can succeed only outsmarting the enemies. Stay undetected to keep the threat level low, or get detected to make enemies follow you, and trick them to reach restricted areas. The threat level will decrease if you hide and escape. But don't get caught!


The game is being developed part-time by a small team using the open source Godot Engine. We started the project with no prior experience as game developers or game designers, but we have learned a lot in the process and are striving to create a unique gaming experience


The game is still in development and will be released in 2021.

Soon we will start running playtest sessions through Steam. Follow our Steam community page to be notified about the next session. We believe that together with your feedback, we can create a great gaming experience
