Well, this sure sounds fascinating. Ether One developer White Paper Games has announced its next project The Occupation, and it's set in the North-West of England during the late 80s – a testing time in British history due to Margaret Thatcher's spell as Prime Minister. The title will see you play as a whistleblowing journalist, and your decisions in the aftermath of a terrorist attack will shape the future of the nation.

"Events happen in real-time and you must make decisions based on the evidence surrounding you," the blurb explains. "Is the cost of an extreme action outweighed by the cause of the greater good? You are the reporter. You decide the narrative." Blimey.

There are no platforms attached to the game just yet, but it's probably safe to assume that it will wind up on the PlayStation 4 just like Ether One before it. Hopefully it launches in a more polished state than that game, because the mental health adventure also had an interesting premise but was plagued by bugs at launch.
