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…

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.

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,…

Modernish Modernist: Tangiers

When I saw the first video of Tangiers, a stealth game set in a bizarre world lifted from the vision of modernist writers such as William Burroughs, I felt a sudden flash of synchronicity. I too had wanted a game that took something from these kinds of fictions, and it was actually this idle blog post that first launched me into making videogames rather than…
