DescriptionAs the title implies, the game's story is set in Africa. Animal and plant life in Africa are made as real as possible as in real life, from habits to life cycle.
The player assumes the role of a photojournalist (no character editor, just male/female character selection) whose main source of income is of taking various animal shots and sending the pictures to the clients. You will be receiving a plethora or orders via e-mail on your laptop, which will require you to take a photo of a certain animals. You can sneak up to take the best possible photo of a given situation, as your presence may scare or irritate certain animals. To speed up your trip, you'll have a jeep that comes with a native guide allowing you to use your camera as you move.
Being simulation and adventure in one, aside from having a goal to follow, the setting and authentic African continent provide you with more than just eye-candy. Remember all those documentaries you liked to watch as a kid... now you can live one of your own.
