When it comes to the horror genre, asymmetrical gameplay works well because there are some people out there who are just as good at playing the zombie as they are at playing the survivor. The next game from an Indonesian developer will take a classic childhood game and inject it with a terrifying twist of horror.
A multiplayer game in which six to ten players are divided into two teams: the Hiders and the Seekers, Project Unseek is a cooperative game in which six to ten players are divided into two teams. In order to either evade or capture members of the opposing team, both teams must work cooperatively.
In Project Unseek, the story begins when a group of teenagers travels to a remote forest cabin for the holiday season, completely unaware of the horrors that lie in wait for them. The teens fall victim to backwood zombies one by one, with only their wits to rely on as they fight for their lives.
As the Hider, players must complete in-game objectives while avoiding the attention of the Seekers in order to escape the area. On the other hand, Seekers must capture the Hiders and thwart any attempts by them to flee before the time limit expires.
Even though both Hiders and Seekers will be viewing the game from a top-down perspective, the limited field of view available to each player will contribute to the game’s creepy atmosphere and horror elements.
Hiders can only see teammates and Seekers when they are in their field of vision, and Seekers can only catch their prey when they are in their field of vision. Hiders can only see teammates and Seekers when they are in their field of vision.
If one of the Hiders is apprehended, he or she will be taken to a specially designated detention facility. It is possible for fellow Hiders to sneak into this area by avoiding the Seekers currently in play and freeing their teammates.
The in-game settings can be customized by players, allowing them to make the game more personalized to their preferences. This includes everything from the number of Seekers to the speed at which characters move and the size of the field of view.
Project Unseek is being developed by Arsanesia, a developer based in Bandung, Indonesia, who are best known for their life simulation game Summer Town, which can be found on the Google Play Store.
If Project Unseek appears to be a good time, you can add it to your Steam wishlist right now.
