    Our newest game, Hide + Seek, is now live! In Hide + Seek, Hiders must blend in with AI-controlled NPCs to complete objectives and avoid detection by Seekers. Please note that as v0.1 of a prototype game, you may run into bugs or other issues - if you see any bugs please file a Bug Report.

    You can play Hide + Seek now in the Prototype Lobby, or read on for more information.

    ▶ What is Hide + Seek?
    Hide + Seek is a tense social game which tests your skills of deduction and your ability to blend in with a crowd. In Hide + Seek there are 2 teams of players - Hiders, and Seekers - and a map full of AI-controlled NPCs.

    Hiders must pretend to be NPCs to sneak around and complete objectives to win. Seekers must try to figure out which NPCs are Hiders and kill them.

    As a Prototype Game, v0.1 of Hide + Seek is available to play now with 1 map: House Party. In this map, the Hiders have to try to ruin a fun House Party whilst the Seekers try their best to catch and stop them.

    Hiders
    Each Hider is disguised as 1 of many NPCs spread around the map. NPCs are controlled by AI, and Hiders must try to copy their movements to blend in and avoid being caught by the Seekers.

    Spread around the map are many Objectives. Hiders can click an Objective to start completing it. A bar appears on screen, and when the bar fills up the objective is complete. Be careful - some objectives can make noises, or have visual tells that could give you away to the Seekers.

    Hiders can right-click on any NPC to swap places and skins with them - this is useful for evading capture or throwing off suspicion, but also makes a noise.

    Hiders can see who other Hiders are by looking for the green particles above their heads. Hiders can see who the seekers are by looking for nametags above heads. When Hiders type in chat, only other Hiders will see the message.

    Objectives
    There are many possible objectives spread around the map. Each game, 7 objectives are selected randomly to be available for Hiders to complete. To win the game, Hiders must complete any 5 of these 7 objectives.

    Special NPCs
    Some NPCs are marked as "Special". These Special NPCs can be objectives that Hiders need to complete. Special NPCs cannot be controlled by Hiders (swapped into with right-click). They move around the map, so Seekers must watch them closely.

    Seekers
    Seekers must figure out which NPCs are Hiders using deduction and clues, and then kill them using their swords. If a Seeker hits a real Hider, they take damage and can be killed. If a Seeker hits an NPC (not a Hider) the Seeker takes damage instead and is stunned for a few seconds. Be careful - if you hit too many NPCs you will die!

    Seekers must watch the NPCs closely and try to figure out which are real players based off their behaviour, or try to catch them completing one of the many objectives spread across the map.

    Seekers also have a Marking Stick in their hot bar - use the stick on NPCs to mark them as suspicious or checked so you can remember who you've checked. When Seekers type in chat, only other Seekers will see the message.

    Winning the Game
    If the Hiders complete 5 out of the 7 possible objectives on the map before the time runs out, the Hiders win. Even if there is only 1 Hider left alive, they can still complete objectives and win the game for all the Hiders.

    If the Seekers find and kill all six Hiders, they win the game. Seekers also win if the time runs out before the Hiders complete 5 objectives.

    -----

    We hope you enjoy this new game. I think it's a really fun game and includes some of the most tense, interesting gameplay we've ever made! Let us know what you think in the comment, or on the Hide + Seek subforum in the PTL :)

    I can't wait to try it, but it sounds a lot like farm hunt.

    Maybe the objectives will make this a better version.

    Played a few games, it's a bit too short, hiders can win fairly easily. Add more objectives before winning.

    I tried it, got the first thread in Hide and seek section, and don't like the game at all.
    It's not my type of game..

  20. Finally, a hide and seek game that doesn't involve disguising one's self as a block and AFKing!
