The Red Stare is a room-scale VR game about spying on communist spies from your apartment window.
In The Red Stare you act as an american agent in the 1950s on a stake out. Gathering evidence on your neighbours, figuring out what role they play with the goal of eventually identifying which one of them is a communist spy. You do all of this from within your apartment, receiving information from your phone and fax machine, using intel from files on your desk, and taking pictures which you can fax to your handler to prove suspicions. You’ll have to use a number of different ways to identify people ranging from descriptions of their appearance, to items that can be found in their rooms, to behaviour only specific members of the communists’ ranks follow.
