Well I guess this is in the very early stages which is why it looks so rough.

Gameplay footage from Whore of the Orient, the next project from L.A. Noire creator Brendan McNamara, has leaked online.

The footage, obtained by VideoGamer.com, shows off the game's open world, main character and combat mechanics.

The auto-aiming gun mechanics are straight of L.A. Noire, while the free-running and fighting is more reminiscent of the modern day Hong Kong-set Sleeping Dogs.

***** of the Orient was announced by McNamara in late 2011, and was being worked on by the remnants of his Team Bondi studio, now owned by Australian production company KMM.

Concept artwork from 2012 revealed that Warner Bros. had signed on as the game's publisher, but the company later parted ways with project just before last Christmas.

KMM was thought to have been searching for a replacement publisher, but development on the game was officially put on hold in April after a round of staff cuts.

McNamara's last project, the Rockstar-published L.A. Noire, was a financial and critical success, but its development was marred by controversy surrounding working conditions. The studio's relationship with Rockstar also reportedly soured.

Team Bondi, same folks that did LA Noire, were working on this. They went belly-up and their remains got purchased by KMM, which are the folks behind the new Mad Max Fury Road movie.

Must still be shopping for a publisher but I'm not sure if I want them to get one. LA Noire had some cool things but ended up being one of the most boring games I've ever played.

Never played LA Noir as it looks really boring.

I agree that they should change the name.

Actually, it's really awesome. I thought it looked boring too, then I got a good deal on LA Noire, so I gave it a shot. Screenshots don't do it justice... and it requires the kind of smarts that most other games don't ask of you. It's just an incredible game.
