Private Eye

Hi Rifters!



This is Jake from Private Eye, our little team from the UK have been working on this title for a little over 3 months and we are nearly ready to show you guys. It's going to be a noir thriller set in 1950s New York with the core gameplay mechanic revolving around exploring your environment with a pair of binoculars. The player will take control of a wheelchair bound protagonist and movement will be very limited with exploration focused primarily on looking. A serial killer is active and to solve you will need to explore both the view outside your window and memories from your past.
We hope that sounds interesting!?



We are looking to launch a Kickstarter campaign in approximately 3 weeks - going to record the promo video this weekend - slightly nervous!

Does anyone have any advice on how best to give the project its best shot? We were perhaps thinking of releasing a small demo for the initial pledge. What do you guys think?

Thanks for checking us out, Jake and the Private Eye team

Good luck Jake, loved the demo at VR Brighton, will defo be backing when you do launch.

Know how you feel, we're launching our Kickstarter for Radial-G next week and it's a lot of effort!

Thanks dude, likewise. We've been trying to launch for about 5months now. As an indie you only got one shot so you got to make it count. Best of luck dude really hope you make it, I'll do my bit to help 🙂

Looking great!! I'll definitely back a copy on your kickstarter. I agree though that I wouldn't try any demos -- I don't want to spoil any surprises for later 😉
