Police Quest Creator's Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter campaign is attempting to raise a half-million dollars to develop a police game called Precinct, proposed by Jim Walls, the former police officer who helped develop the Police Quest series for Sierra On-Line back in the day (thanks nin). This is to use modern 3D graphics and play from a first-person perspective, in a project they say is "an effort to successfully combine original Sierra-style adventure with modern video game technology." Here's word on the game:

Precinct takes players on a police adventure as officer Maxwell Jones in the corrupt town of Fraser Canyon, CA. Starting out as a rookie and then moving up the ranks, players face adrenaline charged scenarios and conduct real police procedures while solving crimes and arresting perpetrators.

Written by Jim Walls and some of today's brightest Hollywood talent, Precinct features a gripping crime story based on true accounts of real police cases. As players clean up the crime ridden streets, the plot thickens with corrupt cops, greedy public officials, and a deadly struggle for control of Fraser Canyon's criminal underground.

The police procedures today consist of shoot first and ask questions later, I doubt I could bring myself to play a game where you play a cop where you don't get to deploy your taser for no good reason or beat up some guy for taking a picture with a smartphone.

I don't need to pay $50 to play that game, I just need to step outside.

This looks less like a classic sierra game and more like a telltale one, which I personally put in the barely a game category.
