SMAC Games' 'Tokyo 42' Combines Action And Stealth In An Isometric, Open-World Indie Game

SMAC Games' debut title is an indie game called Tokyo 42, which the development team called a "lovechild of Syndicate and GTA 1." Players take on the role of an assassin who eventually sets out to uncover a mysterious conspiracy taking place throughout the city.

As an assassin, you can take the aggressive approach on a target by unleashing a fury of bullets, or you can also sneak around to get past suspicious guards and civilians. In addition to the main single-player experience, there's also some multiplayer elements, so you can have a shootout with friends across multiple areas.

The announcement trailer showed some pre-alpha footage of the game, which seems to use an isometric camera to view an area. The isometric view isn't limited to one angle, you can spin the camera around the level to view it from different viewpoints. The entire city is open-world so you can instantly move between the many levels of the city.

There's still not much that we know about the game's story and mechanics, but the short trailer provided a small glimpse as to what's in store for the final version. The game is scheduled to come out sometime in 2017.
