République - Design Decisions and Development

We have been wanting to do an event on the East Side for a while, and now we have the perfect opportunity! Join us at Bungie's beautiful auditorium and learn about the unique One Touch gameplay mechanic and its setup in Unity of the hit iOS stealth game République from Camouflaj! -Brandon


"Special, new, and necessary." - IGN
"A must-play experience in 2014." - Polygon
"Shaping up to be a masterpiece." - Touch Arcade (5/5)
"This is the App Store's next must-have high-end game." - CNET
"Sets a new benchmark for mobile game quality." - The Washington Post

Bellevue-based Camouflaj spent the last two years developing a Unity-based stealth action game for iOS called République (

Released in December, République was awarded Apple's "Editor's Choice" feature during the critical holiday season and has received incredible critical acclaim from media outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, IGN, and Touch Arcade. In this session, Camouflaj team members, including Ryan Payton, will discuss the game's daring "One Touch" gameplay mechanic, which became an immense design and technical challenge. The team will also do a short tour of their Unity project and answer any questions attendees have about the development of République.

Ryan Payton is the founder and designer at Camouflaj, an independent studio based in Bellevue, WA. Beginning his career as producer on Metal Gear Solid 4, he then assumed the role of creative director for Halo 4, before leaving to start his own company in 2011.

    I just moved out to Seattle from Denver, this was my first meet up in the area. It was great to meet all of you. In case anyone is interested, Ryan released a République postmortem on Gamasutra. It is a great read.

    Who was the person looking for environment/character modellers? I couldn't find you after the talk! Could you message me, please?

    Learned a lot, but would have preferred the speakers tailor their presentation to a game dev crowd. There was a bit of going over basic concepts =/
