The shooter Unrecord released its first gameplay trailer this week. The video – which you can watch above – has led to a lot of speculation on social media, with many believing that the game looked more like footage from the real world.
The discussion grew so big that developer Drama finally had to step out to say that this is actually a game.
– Unrecord is real
Unrecord is a tactical shooter where you take on the role of a police officer who must solve a difficult case. You follow the events through the main character’s “body cam”, a camera apparently mounted on the policeman’s helmet.
The article continues below the Twitter message.
The game uses photorealistic graphics, which contributed to the many questions about whether Unrecord is actually developed in a game engine or just consists of video footage. In its explanation on Steam, Drama took the discussion as a compliment, but confirmed that the game is being developed in Unreal Engine 5.
– There have been many doubts about the authenticity of the game video. The game is developed in Unreal Engine 5, and the video is recorded in a program and played with mouse and keyboard. It’s not a VR game.
The French developer further points out that the game must not be interpreted as a socio-political commentary. Without revealing what the plot is about, Drama writes that Unrecord’s message is neither for nor against the police, and that it is up to each individual player what they get out of the experience.
Unrecord currently has no release date. It’s only confirmed for PC, but the developer says the game runs fine with controllers and could therefore find its way to consoles sometime in the future.
