Eye Spy: Signal Ops Out Now

By Adam Smith on April 5th, 2013.

Signal Ops, which Jim first noticed in 2011: A Lack Of Space Odyssey, is now available on GoG.com, which took me by surprise because I’d completely forgotten that the game existed. It’s not an easy thing to forget, as the trailer below handily proves, being a squad-based first-person espionage game, in which every team member’s viewpoint is displayed simultaneously on the screen. The initial reveal brought back memories of Hired Guns but the nerve-shredding atmosphere of that game is nowhere to be seen here – Signal Ops looks like it could have been visiting the house that Blendo built while wearing a hat borrowed from No One Lives Forever.

Signal Ops Trailer Is Charming, Exciting

By Jim Rossignol on September 28th, 2011.

Intriguingly intrigued.
Blimey, I just thought I’d have an idle gander at the Signal Ops announcement trailer (below), and I was quite taken aback. You see, well, if any of you remember Hired Guns (primitive FPS with four screens simultaneously), it’s a bit like that but with real-time stealth espionage. There’s shades of a bunch of stuff in there, actually, like a caricatured take on the old squad-infiltration games. The indie team behind the game, who are trying to raise funds for its development, have said: “Signal Ops draws inspiration from classic games such as Commandos, Syndicate, and Deus Ex. We like to call it a multi-perspective shooter. While playing you are able to simultaneously see what your entire squad of agents see.” The game is all about sabotage and suchlike, therefore demanding planning and cunning, and all those other things that we are all the hell over.

Really, this looks promising. I mean it. Go watch the trailer. Fascinating stuff.
