Umrangi Generation Special Edition Overview
Don’t miss a photo opportunity in the world where the end is approaching
This is a first-person photography action game where you can live as a photographer in a retro-futuristic world that is about to end. Player = The main character spends imminent days while working as a photographer and delivery person at Tauranga Transport in Tauranga, New Zealand. Fighters fly overhead, enemies invade everyday life, gunshots fly, soldiers get hurt, giant robots are dispatched, humanity repeats useless resistance … In the days when the end is approaching, the hero shoots each stage Complete the mission “Photo Bounty” and deliver it to the designated place to earn a reward and live normally.
In “Photo Bounty”, shooting targets such as birds and signboards, pictures of landscapes and friends, shooting targets and corpse bags are specified for each stage, and you can proceed by clearing them. As a reward for work, various lenses and optional functions for photo development will be gradually added, and eventually you will be able to run around the stage with roller blades and take acrobatic photographs in the air. You can also take cute selfies and create illustrations with a spray. Immerse yourself in the world of cyberpunk, shoot and collect your favorite subjects with your favorite processing.
The creative expression of the player is infinite
Naphtali Faulkner, who developed this work, said, “The moment the game decides what kind of photo is “good” and what is “bad”, it becomes a task. What is creative? I don’t think that’s the case, so in this game there are endless ways to reach mission goals, in a way I haven’t imagined as far as I’ve seen play so far. He has achieved it. “In other words, he said that he set the creativity as the core design of the game.
The theme of this work is also influenced by the forest fire that Mr. Naphtali, who lives in Australia, actually experienced. “Red sky” is one of the key themes of the game, as the red flames that burn the sky felt like a symbol of the Earth suffering from the destruction of nature and a sign of dystopia that shows the political unrest felt by the people living there. It became one.
Inspired by the masterpieces “Jet Set Radio” and “Pokemon Snap”, it is a spice of detailed photography and the now-retro art style of the PS2 era. Also, the music that colors the game is by his Thor High Heels, who was also influenced by Hideki Naganuma, who was in charge of the music for “Jet Set Radio”.
Globally acclaimed work selected for numerous awards
This work has been nominated and won numerous awards for its outstanding design sense, world view, and message. Awards – Excellence in Visual Art Japan Media Arts Festival Winner of the 24th Entertainment Division New Face Award ・ 2021 Indie Play – Best Overseas Game Nomination
