Camouflaj Pulls Back the Curtain on the Making of République With a New Documentary
IGN can exclusively show a new mini-documentary from Camouflaj that dives behind the scenes of developing the 2013 stealth adventure game République. The documentary includes stories and testimonials from the developers at Camouflaj about the years leading up to the release of République, with a focus on their struggles in their small studio in Bellevue.
It then details the initial launch of the first episode of the République, subsequent episode releases, the many problems with mo-cap handling and bug fixes, and the success that eventually led to future re-releases and remasters.
Camouflaj’s documentary today coincides with the release of République: Anniversary Edition on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PSVR – almost nine years after iOS’s original launch. The studio also recently announced that it would open a new studio in Kamakura, Japan, run by studio founder Ryan Payton and Devil May Cry 5 producer Matt Walker.
IGN reviewed the first episode of République when it first launched in 2013 and praised its “gorgeous, deep world” full of mystery and exciting plot twists, with “refreshing dynamics.” Camouflaj has since become the creator of Iron Man VR.
