Avant-Garde Stealth Game Tangiers Hits Troubles

There aren't many in-development games that have me more excited than Tangiers [official site]. A surreal stealth sim that draws from the writing of Burroughs and Ballard, it doesn't look quite like anything else I've ever seen - equal parts Silent Hill and Surveillance State - and I urgently need to see more. Sadly, development has hit some obstacles. A recent update on the Kickstarter…

Words Have Power: Immersive Sim Tangiers Due November

A sandbox stealthy immersive sim in a surreal, horror-y world inspired by writers like Burroughs and Ballard is the kind of game description you might get if you wrote RPS's favourite things on scraps of paper, folded them up, put them in a hat, gave it a good shake, grabbed a handful and lined them up. It is also a description of an actual real…

Down In The Burroughs: Tangiers

If Tangiers were an art project, a slice of multimedia world-building rather than a game, it would have my full attention. For some time now, I've been constructing collages in my mind based on the sinister screenshots that have been released but today sees the release of a new video, the first since the successful close of last year's Kickstarter. Drawing inspiration from the 20th…

Pictures Of Stealth: Tangiers

I haven't played enough of new Thief to judge it fully one way or the other, but I can't imagine many people disagreeing with the sentiment that The City has seen better days. With the creative guidance of Looking Glass, The City was one of the weirdest and most distinct environments in fiction, embroidered with lore that gave it spiritual, social and political character. The…

Wealthy Shadows: Tangiers A-Thieves KS Success

It is a very good day. The week is half-over, birds are chirping delightful sunshine songs, and a broken world of shadow, chaos, and deceit has successfully sloughed its way out of Kickstarter's collective womb. These facts are joyously skipping hand-in-hand - as you'd expect - but the third is especially thrilling. Tangiers, whose principle influences include Thief (far more so than the new Thief,…

Tangiers Would Like To Burroughs Some Money

It's not often we're presented with a game that doesn't just rip off Aliens, though I do enjoy a good bughunt, so I am not surprised to see the William Burroughs inspired Tangiers struggle a little as its Kickstarter ends. It's so close but it could be closer! The surrealist stealth game's odd world doesn't have many hooks for anyone not into “a little chain…

Tangiers Mixes With The Kickstarter Crowd

Of all the weird outliers gaming is set to produce in 2013, Tangiers has to be the one I am most excited about: a surreal stealth game set in a world cut from the uneasy modernist fringes of the 20th century. I previously had a chat with it creator, Alex Harvey, and that revealed a dark and ambitious project of stealth, shadow, Thief-like game mechanics,…

The Composite City: Tangiers

Odd story: it was the response to my suggestion that someone should make a game with elements of the literature of William Burroughs that got me into commercial game development back in 2010. It resulted in both Fallen City and Sir. It's with some pleasure, then, that I see that Bristol-based Alex Harvey and Michael Wright, calling themselves Andalusian, have done precisely that with Tangiers,…
