New Character, Environment Art Transforms SpyParty
Like a secret agent blending into a crowd, I’d completely lost track of Chris Hecker’s promising indie espionage soiree, SpyParty.
But look, over there, the beauty headed this way is that… nah. Wait a second, it is SpyParty, and thanks to the addition of character and environment art, it looks like a completely different game. And a pretty one, at that.
Hecker has added the spiffy new art to the SpyParty open beta and it makes a huge difference. See how far it has come in the video above, and here’s a good still that puts a punctuation mark on the transformation:
Want in on the early access open beta? Your ticket in costs $15 and can be picked up at the official SpyParty site.
As for when SpyParty will be ready for the masses, well, your guess is as good as mine. I’ve been waiting on this one since Hecker first unveiled it two years ago, and he originally thought a spring 2013 release was doable. Hopefully the addition of art is an indication the end of development is approaching.
Whenever it gets here, SpyParty won’t sneak up on me. Not this time. Not when it’s looking this good.
