2K Marin the developing house behind The Bureau: XCOM Declassified has rolled out a spoof game based on the actual gameplay of The Bureau. HungoverX, as it is titled is an online game that has been put up by the rather creative developers.
Creative because it uses the same dynamics as XCOM Declassified and stars the protagonist Bill Carter – but with a tweak. That is, here the character is trying to get a fresh cup of coffee in his office without being noticed by his bosses and that is where you are supposed to help him.
The mini game also features his co-workers aiding him in the painstaking task of avoiding the boss while still maintaining the same strategic weapon gameplay dynamics of the actual game.
According to VG247, the domain relating to HungoverX was registered by Take Two, the parent company of 2K Marin and Rockstar, though it wasn’t sure previously whether it was to be used for GTA 5 or XCOM Declassified – a doubt now cleared.
This comes in advance of a high-on-its-heels release of the actual game which is slated for the 20th August in North America and 23rd of the same for the whole of Europe.
Though the storyline is quite funny and a sheer contrast to the actual storyline of The Bureau with extraterrestrial beings and sordid encounters; it still shares the strategic element which you can experience right here.
