The Occupation is a comprehensive first-person simulation and real-time investigative thriller set in the northwest of England on October 24, 1987. You slip into the role of a journalist in a detailed, system-driven world, whose inhabitants react to your actions and where time is your greatest enemy. An explosion led to the enactment of a controversial ordinance that threatens to undermine the civil rights of the population.
You must sneak, hack and investigate while questioning people about a turbulent night that has cost many lives. Each person has a different explanation for the events of that night and you must use the means at your disposal to advance your investigation.
Will you choose the direct path and risk getting caught, or plan your approach carefully as precious time passes? Events happen in real time and you have to make decisions based on evidence.
