Schrodinger’s Cop Shooter:

Unrecord Is an Undecided Game

Games these days are even dancing the line between reality and fallacy, and one of those games is the recently revealed Unrecord.

For those who haven’t seen it or heard of it, Unrecord is a first-person shooter (FPS) developed by the French studio DRAMA.

This time, the players are thrust into the role of a police officer.

Unrecord is a bodycam FPS that appears to be story-driven, where the players controlling the police officer must “solve a complex criminal case.”

What is Unrecord, exactly?

The developers have picked an inherently political medium, yet they want their art form to stay distant from its source material’s politics.

Is Unrecord copaganda?

Based on their response, they didn’t want the smoke and the smell from the fire– just the flames, which to the privileged, probably looked pretty from afar.

So it’s a sanitized cop story?

For those who found themselves on the less safe end of a police gun, it’s a commercialization of a nightmare, especially without the political stance.

The Implications of Neutrality

What Unrecord will be, could depend on how it’s viewed and its story upon release. For now, Unrecord is still Schrodinger’s cop shooter.
