A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

The game

Espial: the Eye from Above is a 3D action game where you follow a briefcase while taking photos of the spies that exchange it and become lost in the crowd. Explore a train station during the Cold War as a spy, from a different and higher point of view; shoot "high quality photos", but be thrifty: you have only one film roll! Don't lose your target or you will lose the opportunity to take the perfect shot!

The team

Team UnderCover is a group formed in February 2017 by five MSc. Game Design and Technology students at IT University of Copenhagen. The team's first project is Espial: The Eye from Above and was developed as a project within the university; as inspiration, the following games were used: Mirror's Edge and Assassin's Creed as well as the early James Bond films.

Pretty good game but if you lose the target ones its almost game over since you really have to memorize him. A compas or Runners Vision on request would have been awesome. Nevertheless art and the idea is neat

thanks for your comment! It was our first small project and we are glad to know that players appreciate the visuals and the gameplay even though is missing some elements. We tried to make it as playable as possible within our scope...and take care of small details instead of introducing new mechanics. And yes, mirror s edge was a big inspiration for it !

It's a really interesting game, the art it's nice, I had a lot of fun playing it. Good luck with the development!
