Dev Diary: Agents of SWING

SWING is designed to replicate the spy-fi and adventure series of the 1960s and 70s but the default time-setting is 1967. The book contains a primer on the key events of the 1960s and 70s – though not ones specific to the background of the game or agency, that will come later – and an example of the information is given below. This isn’t hugely detailed – that would take up way too much of a book – and it isn’t very specific but it does give an overall feel to the political and social climate of the time which games can either address, or be an escape from.
