The History of Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs is often included in lists of great GTA-clones, but that is doing developer United Front Games a disservice.  Sleeping Dogs is a great game, period.

GVMERS has created a YouTube video looking at the complete history of Sleeping Dogs, from even before it was dubbed True Crime: Hong Kong, through to release and beyond.  It celebrates Sleeping Dogs’ setting, tone and style of combat which set it apart from Rockstar Games’ franchise, and recognises the challenges that it faced to even be released at all.  It’s an excellent watch.

Have you played Sleeping Dogs?  If so, would you Kickstart a sequel, or should we let sleeping dogs lie?

  1. I wish there would be a sequel but a proper sequel, not the one they were going to make to reuse the assets of the original
