Controller Support, Couch Co-op, Mac, And More

Hey, officers!

For the last several weeks we’ve been transferring the project to GameMaker Studio 2. Finishing this part of the development process allowed us to proceed to implementing some of the features we had planned for quite a while. As you can see on the gif, Police Stories is now both working on Mac and has a controller support!

For now the Right Stick is responsible for aiming, which isn’t very convenient. We’re going to upgrade it with a more classic twin-stick approach, plus a special button combination to command your partner. Luckily, the menu is optimized for the controller since the very beginning, so most of the work is already done.

Adding a controller support required us to upgrade the whole input system. It turned out to be a good thing, as now we’re able to implement changing control keys more easily.

After finishing this part of the development, we’re moving to widely anticipated Couch Co-op. Aside from the tech side, it also includes update of the HUD.

Here is a small list of features we’re doing next:
  • Suspect’s AI improvement – Escaping from the room or the level
  • Destructible walls (not every wall will be destructible)
  • Difficulty Settings for each mission
  • Tutorial tooltips
  • Enhanced smoke/gas grenade mechanics

And don’t forget about the Storyline. We have some progress there as well! Even though mentioned features will take quite a time in implementation, we believe that they are necessary to make a game lots of people will enjoy.

We really appreciate your support. Thank you!

This is the final update for our Open Alpha before the game release. Keep in mind that this is the Alpha version of the game, so it might contain bugs. We encourage you to report all the bugs and other problems you might encounter during your playtime.

This version of Police Stories has 3 levels and 3 kinds of enemies. Each type of enemy has different weaponry and difficulty. We also made sure to add some new equipment to play with. Including brand new Heavy Ammo that pierces through doors.

Full version of the game will have lots of equipment to choose from, an online co-op and a story mode on release.

Thank you for playing our Open Alpha! Don’t forget to add the game to your Steam Wishlist so you wouldn’t miss the full release.

“It’s a cop game that looks and plays like Hotline Miami but has more in common with the slower, more tactical first-person SWAT series in practice.”
PC Gamer

“This sliver of game has occupied me all afternoon, despite being only two levels, and I really enjoy how it feels. I especially love how one wrong move blows an entire mission.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“If you’re a lover of Police Quest or Door Kickers then Police Stories absolutely needs to be on your radar.”

About This Game

Unforgiving and tense, each mission tells a story of two police operatives - John Rimes and Rick Jones, filled with infiltrating gang hideouts, rescuing hostages, making arrests and other life-threatening situations.

  • The Surrender System allows you to apprehend the suspects without resorting to violence. Fire a warning shot near them or engage them in melee combat - those are just some of the ways you can make them submit.
  • Issue commands to your fellow cop Rick Jones. Make sure to use him wisely - and who knows, he might save your life in return.
  • Randomly placed criminals, hostages and evidence make every level run unique. The placement changes every time you restart, leading to new interesting situations and opportunities.
  • As a law enforcement officer, you will have access to end-of-the-line police equipment, such as under-the-door cameras, door blast charges and many others.
  • Various types of lawbreakers, from small petty criminals to well organised gangs and terrorists. Each type has not only unique weapons, but different behaviour and shooting skill.
  • Complex Tactical Gameplay: Try not to get spotted, don't waste bullets, regularly check your surroundings and make sure to take criminals down quietly.
  • All your actions are scored in real time. Playing aggressively won't get you a high enough result to start the next mission - so keep that in mind!
  • Online Co-op. Complete missions in multiplayer for better scores and more fun!
