L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi, reborn after a timely buyout, has announced that its next game – Whore of the Orient – is being developed for the next-generation of home consoles and PC.
The developer’s website has now gone live, revealing some new details about the game. The site contains a single image depicting a scene from a Chinese apartment and a man sweeping up in the background. And it’s clear from the mood-setting snippet of prose posted on the site that the city of Shanghai will play a strong role in the game. The text reads:
"Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace."
Team Bondi is actively recruiting for the project which will be published by Warner Bros, with the site advertising several roles in the programming, animation, art, and design departments.
Team Bondi went into liquidation late last year, with many of the company’s assets and staff being acquired by Academy award winning production team of Kennedy Miller Mitchell, responsible for the Mad Max and Happy Feet films.
