The developers had their reasons for choosing the TSA. “[The team] liked the idea of taking the dreaded security check at the airport and use VR to really exploit the fun in that,” said Remy Bustani, one of the founders of the game. “VR is a unique platform and gives us as developers the tools to take something out of real life and make something fun out of it.”
Progression is an important point in this game, and the developers have made sure there are clears goals and upgrades available for players as they make their way up the TSA ladder. In total, players will have to earn their promotions through multiple levels of stress-inducing checkpoints and unruly passengers in order to find success in their department. Each shift players will unlock new equipment to make their jobs easier but with better tech comes higher numbers of people and less time to get through them all.
