Open World Exploratory Game Copoka Hits Steam Greenlight
Yesterday, Inaccurate Interactive launched its open-world exploratory game, Copoka, on Steam Greenlight.
As you may know, Copoka, first arrived on the scene in July’s Humble Monthly, where it was a Humble Original title. However, now the Swedish based team is taking the game, which originally started out as a school project, to Steam Greenlight, in an attempt to get to the game in people’s hand who may have not had the chance to pick up the Humble Bundle back in July.
So, what is Copoka? Well, it’s an open-world exploratory game where you play as a bird trying to build a nest in the totalitarian city-state of Copoka. As you freely fly above and around the city, you will collect twigs to grow your nest. As your nest grows, a story of “intrigue and politics unfolds.” Further, as you fly around you can also eavesdrop on conversations, that will in turn provide more details and tidbits to flesh out the game’s whole story.
The following story overview is provided on the game’s Steam Greenlight page:
Copoka is a city in distress. Speakers all around the city announce that the Great Leader will bring the state its salvation, while people lament in the streets about starvation and dissatisfaction. Something is brewing in the back alleys of the slums. Whispers in the wind tell about a coming revolution, the culmination of the distraught amongst Copoka’s citizens.
The perks of being a bird is that one can undertake the role as a silent observer. By listening to different people a nuanced picture of the conflict brewing in the city is revealed; a conflict concerning clashing ideologies regardless of social standing or allegiance.
As of right now, the game has no concrete release date. However, the developer did reveal to us that if everything goes well with the game on Steam Greenlight, the game could ship sometime in early 2017. As of right now, there are no plans for a release on other platforms.
Below, you can check out the game’s newest trailer, which not only showcases the game’s beautiful enviroments, but its excellent musical score, as well as some new screenshots:
