SpyParty slips into something a little more comfortable
How long has it been now? Three? Four years? It seems like SpyParty's development cycle has been so drawn out that I might actually miss the anticipation when it finally gets released.
For now, though, the excitement lives on as Chris Hecker's brilliant one-on-one espionage game receives a much-needed graphical update. Sporting a slick, cartoon-like visual style, the new models remind me a lot of Outerlight's similarly themed, and also fantastic, The Ship.
The official website has also received a matching makeover, and the whole thing is almost, almost starting to feel like it's getting close to being released. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
