Yell at scientists to get them to safety

You’d think a stealth game that relies on you making a lot of noise would be pretty counter-intuitive, but that’s exactly what Valentina Chrysostomou is doing with her upcoming free game, Plan Be.

Plan Be is controlled predominantly using a microphone and voice recognition. Playing as someone in the control room of an underground facility, you’ll need to tell a trapped scientist when and where to move to get them to safety, as well as when to use items or environmental traps such as distracting loudspeakers.

Cutscenes are also controlled with your microphone, as talking to NPCs will be an important part of the game. Chrysostomou emphasises that while there are pre-set dialogue trees, there are also plenty of hidden optional routes too, assuming you find the right voice commands.

I’m really looking forward to trying out Plan Be. It’s looking like it could be a pretty damn solid game, assuming the voice controls work properly. We’ll know for sure soon, as the game is currently set for release in December through GameJolt, Itch.io and IndieGameStand. For now though, there are plenty of videos and screenshots to look through.

This could be something very interesting indeed.
