Modern Dream is a small group of game developers passionate about games, art and music. from The Button Affair to The Cat That Got the Milk to their latest title, LA Cops, their style and vision is recognizable and distinctly beautiful.


LA Cops
A shootout game with a hint of strategy and gameplay inspired by Syndicate (The Bullfrog Classic) and modern top down shooters, it’s bold, vibrant and un-apologetically filled with gun action. LA Cops takes the art style of previous Modern Dream title, The Button Affair, and combines it with a 70’s Cops set in LA. In making this game they’ve been inspired by David Hockneys "A bigger splash" painting, Edwards Ruscha's "Standard" painting and by the great state of California itself.

Mini Q&A
Answers by Oliver Clark, Director
Why do you make games?
For the love of it. I've loved playing games since my dad brought home a Commodore Vic20 many years ago and from then on making games was the only thing I ever would and could do.

Why should people play LA Cops?
To escape into another involving world for a few hours. Its an action game designed to be beautiful to look at whilst involving and challenging to play.

As our new game it's our latest step into producing games that poke the eyes and grab attention.

What element of game design do you hold above all others?
That "just one more go!" feeling. This is the most important feeling to capture.

Feature wise we're proud of the cop buddy system which allows the Cops to cover each other as the player leap frogs them up through the level.

'That "just one more go!" feeling.'

I get the feeling this game is going to be quite challenging. I say go for it! Games are quite easy in comparison to several generations ago.

Here's video of the gameplay and the developer goes into more detail on the game. Game seems fun, and it seems like it's one hit and your dead, that seems really frustrating for noobs like me. second video shows more gameplay of it

coolbeans  +   505d ago
Those paintings are two very good references.

The Button Affair by them looks pretty good too.
TheOnlyMastrx  +   505d ago
Sounds to be somewhat of a challenge, but not so much that it makes you want to rage quit. Sounds good to me.
randomass171  +   505d ago
Games that make you rethink strategies are often the ones with more replayability and staying power. Hopefully this game is like those. :)

A lot of these idie devs started out with PCs really early in their lives. It seems like getting a commodore is the first step in mot of these devs path.

The buddy cup thing sounds really cool
