Title (Provisional):  Agent9
Narrative (1st Draft) 
You are a freedom fighter, part of a global resistance movement whose goal it is to free the people of the world from an oppressive state, ruled by an evil overlord and his cronies.

Your covert mission is to move around your location, tracking down CCTV cameras to ascertain whether they are being used for or against the will of the people. 

You will examine each camera you find. You will choose to disable, fix or leave CCTV cameras depending on your findings. Mostly you can so this by yourself but sometimes you may need to join with other members of the resistance. 

If you choose correctly, you will receive information in the form of ‘information ink’ which when added to an invisible map, will reveal further locations in your area. In completing your mission effectively you will be rewarded by moving up the ranks. 

But, you should remain vigilant, as the state is constantly checking the surveillance cameras and should you make the wrong choice, you will be detected by the state and tracked, captured and imprisoned.

Free the people from an oppressive world state
and protect the innocent 
…One Camera at a time.

Who is Watching you (BBC) 2009

All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace
I like to think (and the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.

Game Mechanics 
1 The Player downloads the app from Apple/Google Play Mobile App Store onto their mobile phone/ipad. 
2 The player receives a simple narrative in the form of a short film.   
3 No Written Instructions are given as the player will receive instructions as they play.
4 When the Player enters a real life location, their phone will vibrate indicating they are close to a CCTV camera. 
5 The Resistance Logo flashes on their device…
6 This is followed by simple instructions which say “look for CCTV Camera”
7 The device can then be used to sweep the room to locate an Augmented Reality (AR) CCTV Camera nearby. 
8 Instructions prompt the player to examine the CCTV camera. 
9 Is the camera working for or against the people? The operative must decide. 
10 If the camera is working – The player can choose to watch the camera footage… The player then can flick to disable or leave the camera running. 
11 If the camera is broken – The player can choose to fix the camera or leave it broken. 
12 Their phone will buzz again indicating that the state are close by.  
13 The player chooses…  
14 If they have chosen correctly they will receive information that will lead to the next location. 
15 If they have chosen incorrectly they will be detected by the state, captured and imprisioned (they will be inactive for 30 minutes). 
16 As players progress around their neighbourhood, they will go up and down the resistance ranking. When they reach a certain level they can start to explore other locations further afield such as USA, China, India, Japan, Russia etc.  
17 Cameras in worldwide GPS locations will represent the region in which they are located.

Concept Development & Pitch
I’m researching cinematic VR Examples at the moment ad it struck me that this would be really useful for the pitch videos.

This Example ‘Hunt’ uses Unity 2018 to showcase unities capacity for realities film making.

There’s also plenty of reviews which examine the assets created (and now available to purchase) on the unity asset store for €125.00 for 300+ models.

This should be something to consider and factored into the monetisation plan for the project.

Finally.. Unity’s fabulousness aside, there’s the game pitch. 
This really made me chuckle in a most informative way.
