This game was inspired by games like Radio Jet Set and Pokemon Snap. It’s also especially made with people who love photography, or early 2000s retro style art. This themed title also features great music, letting you settle into the world and immerse yourself in life. of the Umurangi generation.
the Umurangi Generation theme came from developers experience of bushfires in Australia. The roaring fires that painted the skies red were seen as a dystopian harbinger of the destruction Earth was undergoing, juxtaposed by news and politicians calling the situation a “new normal”.

From fighter jets beaming overhead, from the sound of constant gunfire and wounded soldiers to in-game billboards, everything you see provides more context to the daily lives of the people of Tauranga. Despite all this, life goes on… People go to work, party to escape reality, complain about the government and the inequalities between the poor and the rich… As a Tauranga Express courier, you travel through Tauranga by taking pictures and documenting the world and its reality through the lenses of your camera.
