Another indie team has turned to crowdfunding in hopes of returning to a mothballed classic, with Sierra veterans Jim Walls and Robert Lindsay pitching Precinct, a hopeful spiritual successor to the Police Quest games that they worked on back in the 1980s.
Playing in the first person perspective, Precinct's real-time 3D environments and gameplay deliver significant realism to the classic police adventure style Jim is famous for creating. Along with staple elements such as adventure and puzzles, players also encounter intense fast action gameplay sequences that include shootouts, high speed car chases, investigations, foot pursuits, hand-to-hand combat, and more.
Jim is leading an effort to successfully combine original Sierra-style adventure with modern video game technology. The Precinct team is poised to redefine the cop-game genre by making a game that both classic and modern gamers can enjoy.
The project has an initial goal of US$500,000, with an expected delivery of a PC game in June 2014, and aspirations for other platforms as stretch goals.
