Still in development, Warco is a video game that wants to put you in the shoes of a conflict photojournalist rather than an army grunt
The video game genre of first person shooters — better known as FPS — is one generally that casts you as a foot-soldier in a battle, be it realistic or fantastic. You have guns, you shoot the bad guys, and any sort of character development or moral grayness is often ignored. Warco, a game currently in development by Brisbane-based studio Defiant Development is hoping to change all of that. Rather than giving you a shotgun, they give you a video camera, and cast you in the role of a photojournalist.
