It’s a universal rule that cheating is frowned upon but the temptation is always there no matter how hard a person tries. However, if people are under pressure will they break?
Surprise Attack puts this notion to the test in their upcoming game Screencheat which dares players not to look at their opponents screen to figure out where they’re hiding.
So why is it so hard not to look? In this a splitscreen multiplayer FPS, players are invisible which push the limits of their desperation to look at each other’s screens to win.
Inspired by Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Hal, the game will challenge how well a player can memorize colored parts of each map, including any distinctive landmarks, in order to successful hunt down their invisible opponents.
Screencheat will feature two-to-four player splitscreen (local and online), eight weapons and six different game modes that can be customized to keep things fresh. It will also have full steam integration and full controller support, on top of standard mouse and keyboard functionality.
A free beta will begin on August 4th.
Screencheat is scheduled to arrive for PC via Steam in October.
