Unrecord, a new state-of-the-art video game, features players experiencing the game through the protagonist’s bodycam perspective. The recent trailer has many wondering if it’s an actual video game or genuine bodycam footage.
Gaming developers have consistently pushed the limits of existing hardware and software, particularly when it comes to achieving realism. Virtual reality gaming has enabled players to immerse themselves fully in the digital world, albeit with some limitations. For example, playing Resident Evil Village in VR is terrifying but not exactly photorealistic.
Amazing Attention To Detail
However, that might change soon. A few days ago, the trailer for a new title called Unrecord was released, and it has stirred up the gaming community due to its seemingly non-game-like appearance.
In Unrecord, a first-person shooter, players control a police officer investigating a “complex case” requiring both “tactical and detective skills” for success. The entire experience unfolds from the officer’s bodycam perspective, giving the impression of rewatching recorded footage.
Despite the bodycam angle, the game initially appears like any other standard FPS title. However, the gameplay footage has astounded viewers with its photorealism. The video’s realism led some to question its authenticity, with a few suspecting the trailer was merely actual bodycam footage pieced together.
Last year, Alexandre Spindler, the game’s developer, created a buzz when he tweeted an early concept video of the project. People debated whether it was gameplay or real footage, prompting Spindler to tweet some video footage of him playing it in developer mode to silence skeptics.
The recently released trailer showcases a more refined appearance for the FPS, featuring a glimpse of its minimal UI and providing a preview of the enemy encounters.
