It's a project I currently do at my university. It is a 2 vs 2 cooperative network game. Two thieves, two guards. The guards use that first person view, you see in the video and have to catch the thief (one of them also uses the first person view). The thief has to steal some valuable objects (I.e. paintings) from the building and escape. The other thief has a top down overview of the building and can assist the player by tagging positions, placing objects to block the guards, open doors etc.

What was the inspiration? First person controls on tablets frustrating?

I think there was a 2v2 spies vs mercenaries type thing in Splinter Cell a while ago that looked cool but I never played it.

Well, I made a role a ball type of game first, with a top view. Then my teammates wanted to try first person, as it promised to be a more immersive experience for the player. I was against it at first, as my opinion was, that first person controllers only work well on PC, but coming up with that modification of ommiting the x axis to look up or down really made me change my mind.

Ahhh so you have more control because your fingers can't accidentally move the view up or down! Clever.

Keep us updated on how it develops :D
