Nikitova Games, who works on licensed games such as Casper Scare School
, has announced two original projects for the DS and Wii. One is Mind Games
, which is ... some training
thing. But the other
, sounds pretty neat!
The game seems to involve watching security footage and picking out perpetrators from a crowd, as well as X-raying luggage in an airport. The game's description hints at more tasks: "... this fast paced game of observation, identification & interrogation." Success gets you promoted from mall security up to "international head of security".
We're glad to see an original game idea, and we're always happy when a developer of licensed games moves on to something more ambitious -- even if it's a more ambitious licensed game. We're also thrilled to see a game based on watching security cameras, if only because it reminds us of Night Trap.
Maybe with the security camera gimmick used for something other
than delivering FMV, a good game can come from the idea!
