Embedded is a VR photography game about journalistic choice. Play as Henry Moris, a retired war time photojournalist, as he looks back on his work during the Vietnam War.
Embedded is a period VR photography game about how the media shapes public perception. In Embedded, the player takes the role of an embedded photojournalist covering American involvement in the Vietnam War. As the player, you ride along with a team of soldiers as they carry out missions and drive from town to town, while you document what you see with your camera. Sometimes you witness refugees fleeing their homes and other times you witness soldiers performing heroic acts. When it’s time to report back to your editor, you choose which photos to submit for publication. This choice creates different tones of articles that reflect different attitudes on the war depending on the sentiment of your photographs. Additionally, the prestige of the newspaper your article is published in reflects the technical merit of your photographs. Embedded gives you the power to change how the narrative of the war is presented in the media. The game expresses what it is like to generate and publish news and make choices that ultimately decide how the public will feel: whether they see the war as a necessary and patriotic action or a haphazard and cruel one.
Use your camera to shoot photos and witness history.
Embedded will be available on PC in Summer 2018.
