Squat to Move! Unpacking the Mechanics in Squat Ops

updated 2024-04-25

In the world of stealth, movement is not just about getting from point A to B; it’s about survival, strategy, and finesse. In Squat Ops, we’ve taken away the controller and looked at the art of movement on a different level, and I’m here to break down how it all works.

The Tactical Squat

A squat in Squat Ops is more than a physical exercise! Squat excersises are a strategic play, and your primary way of controling the game. By performing a bodyweight squat, players move your character two spaces forward along a set path. This bread and butter movement sounds simple, but it’s anything but.

Challenges of the Field

While moving, our stealth action hero - Hart can be spotted or activate noise tiles, attracting guards and adding real-time challenges to the game. A wrong squat at the wrong time, and the mission can go south pretty quickly.

Strategy and Timing

Squat Ops encourages physical precision, strategic thinking and flawless timing. Getting through a highly guarded room comes down to when to squat, how long squat, and where in the room to stop and review. It’s a beautiful marriage of you and the game. Every move matters, and every decision counts.

Immersion and Engagement

What makes this game stand out is the integration of physical movement with on-screen action. The squat isn’t just a command; it’s an immersive experience, linking the player’s body with the game’s virtual world.
