Photorealistic video game ‘Unrecord’ shock gamers

Published on:

A recently released video game footage of a Photorealistic bodycam FPS themed game is floating across various social media platforms. The developer of the game, Alexandre Spindler, first released the gameplay on Twitter that has garnered close to 20 million views and over 45,000 retweets.

The gameplay footage is from their Indie title currently under development called ‘Unrecord’. The game features a tactical shooter mechanics with a twist of player view though a body cam instead of your regular first-person shooter view.

Gameplay wise, the movement and animation with unique camera view make the gameplay feel alive, but the most important aspect here is the incredible lighting inside the game that sets the intense mood of the game.

According to the official Steam page, “Unrecord is a single-player FPS that tells the story of a tactical police officer from the perspective of his body camera. As you work to solve a complex case, you’ll need to use your tactical and detective skills to succeed.”

The game is currently in early development using the new Unreal Engine 5. Like the very nature of humans, many started to claim that the gameplay was fake and actually an edited video. The developer then released the development gameplay inside Unreal while freely roaming and firing the pistol inside the game to prove that it was actually a game. Even professional gamers were left in splits after they found about the same.

Release of the game not yet confirmed

While not completely impossible to spot that the video is from a game, one will have to look really hard and multiple times. The studio has also released some common FAQs regarding the game after they first release the gameplay video, which can be found here.

The gameplay and photorealistic graphics does give a jaw dropping reaction to gamers, but it does not necessarily mean that all PCs will be able to run it. The game is in early development with no release window.

It might be a possibility that the devs may add mode features and polish the graphics that may get real heavy on older generation of graphics card even with a lot of optimization. At the moment, one can only hope that their PC holds out till the game releases.
