“There is something that happens when you know it’s not the game that’s controlling the jump scares, it’s actually another player,” says Game Director Romain Amiel. “That unpredictability is what fuels the intensity in the game, and when you combine that with trying to stay hidden and not being spotted by the other player, it makes for a really involved game experience.”

‘Hide and Shriek’ is a one vs. one multiplayer game where players collect points and scare the other player through the use of spells, traps, and jump scares. Players can summon dark demons, set up elaborate traps, and jump out of hiding to scare each other senseless. The catch is that you are both invisible, and in order to find and scare the other player you must observe telltale signs such as doors opening or objects flying through the air, or trick them into clever traps that will reveal their position.

‘Hide and Shriek’ is available now on Steam and it is fully localized to German, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Korean, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese languages.
