Screencheat is a first-person shooter that throws conventional split-screen multiplayer rules out the window and actively encourages players to look at their opponent’s screen. As your enemies are invisible on your screen, it’s impossible to find out where they are on the map without taking a not-so-sneaky peek at their screen. We say not-so-sneaky because in the world of Screencheat, it’s not really cheating!
Screencheat was born out of the Global Game Jam 2014 and is being developed by the four man team – Samurai Punk. The full game is set to contain five colourful maps, five distinctive weapons and a wide variety of both online and offline multiplayer options that will promote questionable sportsmanship around the world.
- Four player split-screen multiplayer that can be played both locally and online
- Eight weapons
- Five maps
- Six different game modes that can be customized to keep things fresh
- Full Steam integration
- Full controller support, on top of standard mouse and keyboard functionality
