System Under Surveillance (SUS) is an upcoming stealth indie game with adventure elements and puzzle elements similar to The Legend of Zelda series. The game's visuals are inspired by classic retro games, but in an isometric perspective.
In SUS, there is not combat system: you'll have to use your own problem solving abilities and understanding of the cyberpunk environment to succeed.
In System Under Surveillance, you control two character with vastly different abilities.
Adam is an ordinary boy with no apparent super power, yet highly intelligent and resourceful. His abilities to hack into IT systems and effectively use the environment allow him to evade enemies with ease.
TURBO is an old and quirky cleaning robot, and Adam's trusted companion. TURBO can hover over small distances, and transform into a metallic ball, giving him the ability to fit into tight spaces and pipes.
You, as the player, will need to combine each character's unique abilities to overcome the challenges, avoid and trick the enemies, and solve clever puzzles to progress in the game.
After a suspicious car chase involving his adoptive mother, Adam finds himself stranded alone in the middle of a dangerous dystopian city. He soon finds out that the authorities are after him, without knowing why.
While struggling to escape and survive, he finds a quirky cleaning robot labeled "Teleautonomous Unit Responsible for Bleaching Operations" , or TURBO for short.
Despite the name, TURBO is pretty clumsy and slow, but with its big digital heart, it will accompany Adam in his journey, helping him discover the dark truth surrounding the accident.
