Whore of the Orient gameplay video leaks

Leaked video has surfaced online of Whore of the Orient, the next project from the team behind L.A. Noire. Videogamer is hosting the footage of the work-in-progress game, which affords the first look at its main character, some early gameplay, and its take on Shanghai.


Keep in mind that the choppy frame rate, off-kilter animations, and (hopefully) that awful music are all symptoms of a project not yet ready to meet public eyes. However, the crowded streets, chases, fisticuffs and cover-based gunplay are telling even in an unpolished state. It looks a lot like L.A. Noire in Shanghai, so far.

Former developer Team Bondi folded in 2011, but several developers and the rights to Whore of the Orient were brought on by Australian media group KMM. It reportedly ceased production on the game in April, but received $200,000 from an Australian investor in June to continue development.

    Seems to be in Alpha at best. The ai seems to be far from finished alongside the as the incomplete animations and foley.

    It's obviously not ready to show to the public. Get over it, haters. Geez! I think I was one of the few people who loved LA Noire so I hope this does get made. But after Team Bondi's troubles (and if the reports are true - being a terrible team to work for), I can see this going the way of Duke Nukem Forever. If nothing else I'd hate the thought of that cool facial animation tech never being used again.

    I feel like this game would scratch the itch I got from playing games like Sleeping Dogs or the Yakuza series. And this is a very good thing.

    Lucas must be boycotting it since there's no Freaky video this week.

    Its called a leak. As in this wasn't meant to be shown off to the public. Its not meant to be a trailer, why the criticism in the comments like it was?
