Me and Eddie Cameron did a game based on Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Conversation.” I did art / design, and Eddie did code / design.

We got done with about 80% of it. We have a pretty good skeleton, but the gameplay needs some serious tuning and I still want to add character animations.

It’s a single player, multi-character FPS in Unity3D.

Basically, you have to eavesdrop / record a couple’s conversation as they walk around a crowded plaza — without them noticing. To do that, you have 2 long range “sniper” mics watching them… and a guy on the ground following them with an “aura” mic in a briefcase. Keep track of them and don’t lose them in the crowd!

Important stuff to know before playing:

*** A yellow arrow hovers above your target for 30 seconds as an aid at the beginning of the game.  After that, you’re on your own.***

*** Also, keep your briefcase guy out of the couple’s LoS, or else you’ll lose! They have really long LoS! ***

*** Oh, and there’s one huge exploit. See if you can figure it out! ***
