Announcing Precinct - by the Creator of Police Quest - 07/16/13 09:54 AM

Precinct is a new police adventure video game from Jim Walls, creator of the classic Sierra series “Police Quest”.

Note: It may have some action that requires quick reflexes which you can't skip or get through alternately which I am trying to confirm.

Update: KIckstarter was cancelled - the new funding can be accessed here.

Quote:
ABOUT THE GAME Precinct takes players on a police adventure as officer Maxwell Jones in the corrupt town of Fraser Canyon, CA. Starting out as a rookie and then moving up the ranks, players face adrenaline charged scenarios and conduct real police procedures while solving crimes and arresting perpetrators.

Written by Jim Walls and some of today's brightest Hollywood talent, Precinct features a gripping crime story based on true accounts of real police cases. As players clean up the crime ridden streets, the plot thickens with corrupt cops, greedy public officials, and a deadly struggle for control of Fraser Canyon's criminal underground.

Playing in the first person perspective, Precinct's real-time 3D environments and gameplay deliver significant realism to the classic police adventure style Jim is famous for creating. Along with staple elements such as adventure and puzzles, players also encounter intense fast action gameplay sequences that include shootouts, high speed car chases, investigations, foot pursuits, hand-to-hand combat, and more.



Happy Gaming!

I've played a LOT of Sierra games, some King's Quests, 2 Space Quests (loved those) and definitely Gabriel Knight and Lighthouse, but never a Police Quest. Watching the video (even with my 90+lbs German Shepherd dragging my chair AWAY from my PC monitor, I saw some nostalgia that just pulled me in and made me grin. You guys GO because you already rock!

I am a big fan of all the Sierra On Line games and remember all the Police Quest games and played them all right up to swat. When they moved to Swat, they lost me. Too much action at the time.

Although I am nostalgic for any of the old Sierra quest games, after reading the info about car chases and shootouts I'm hesitant to jump into the game. I'm wondering just how much adventure and how much action this game is.
