Screencheat is a split-screen multiplayer FPS where everyone is invisible and you have to cheat to win. Remember when looking at your friends’ screen in Goldeneye was frowned upon? Well those days are gone and in Screencheat, we encourage it!

Murder Mystery Update is out today!



Hello screencheaters!

This week we've got a major update for everyone who has pre-ordered the game! Known as the Murder Mystery update, Samurai Punk has packed in a gigantic new map called Manor, and a brand new mode called Murder Mystery. We made a video to show you how the new mode works, so check it out:

We find that Murder Mystery forces you to stop spanning, screencheat more, and will have you tracking your foes down in an intense game of cat and mouse. Of course, we'd love to hear your feedback, so head over to this discussion

We are also setting up several developer play sessions leading up to the October 21st release. We're making event reminders on Steam, but below is the current schedule:

US SESSIONS

Mondays at 7:00pm PDT

Wednesdays at 7:00pm PDT

AUSTRALIAN SESSIONS

Tuesdays at 7:00pm AEST

Thursdays at 7:00pm AEST

Hopefully we'll see you online! Feel free to record the sessions, because if you manage to beat Samurai Nick in battle, that's quite an achievement!

So now it's heads down on hitting our release date. We're happy to report that we are feature complete, and all that remains is polish and minor bug fixes before we unveil version 1.0. You guys can expect two new weapons, a new map, and a new mode when the game launches!

Thanks again to all of your support! Have fun, and we'll see you online - Steve

Screencheat beta statistics are here. We also have a release date!



The Screencheat beta brought out the best and worst in people from around the world, last month, captivating 12,707 cheaters globally. In a Screencheat Cold War revival, the two most lethal nations were the United States and Russia. Given that the US has produced arguably the world’s greatest cheats, like Lance Armstong and Marion Jones, it’s not surprising to see that the USA brought it home with 168,812 kills over the beta period. Not too far behind though were the Russians, with 91,292 kills, but even with a Putin-like fighting spirit, they just couldn’t hold up against the West.

When it comes down to getting things done, the Blunderbus was the go-to weapon during the Screencheat beta. In a distant second and third were the grenade launcher and candelabra.

With the beta now over and Screencheat entering into its final stages of development, developer Sumarai Punk and publisher Surprise Attack Games are pleased to announce that Screencheat will be releasing on Steam on the 21st of October.

Both Samurai Punk and Surprise Attack Games will be celebrating the launch of Screencheat at PAX Australia, so be sure to swing by the Screencheat booth to try and beat the developers at their own game, win copies for your friends, and meeting Donnie Douchebag, the world’s greatest Screencheater, in the flesh.

We're also going to have a bunch of community game nights leading up the launch, so stay tuned.

Steve

About This Game

Screencheat is a chaotic split-screen multiplayer shooter that forces players to rethink the way they approach conventional multiplayer games. In the Screencheat arena, fast reaction times aren’t enough to keep you alive. When everyone is invisible, players will have to master the art of taking a not-so sneaky look at their opponent’s screens and working out where they are based on uniquely coloured areas of the map and distinctive landmarks.

Screencheat pays homage to iconic competitive first-person shooters such as Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Halo, by blending the elements everyone loves about those games and shaking it up with its own unique take on the genre. When everyone’s used to playing by the rules, can you adapt to unconventional gaming quick enough to get the upper hand?

Final Features


• Eight unique weapons – You won’t find any iron sights here, just weapons of chaos like the Blunderbuss, grenade launcher and the Chefolet pulse cannon.
• Five colourful maps – Each map in Screencheat has been handcrafted to feature distinctive areas and landmarks to help you hunt down your opponents.
• Four player split-screen local multiplayer, or four player split-screen online multiplayer
• Controller support
• Steam achievements + Trading Cards
• May or may not be Lance Armstrong’s favourite game

Screencheat is a game that hones spatial awareness and reflexes. As far as objective data goes, the mechanics are good, each of the guns have their own strategy and tricks. Every weapon, even the two melee options, have some kind of smoke or flame when reloading, and there are enough distinctive landmarks that you can find someone relatively easily.
As a human being, WHOOP HOBBY HORSE WHOOP! The weapons are fun to use and most are rewarding when you kill someone (*cough grenade launcher cough*). It's probably one of the most applicable first-person shooters ever, up there with Quake and TF2. you've got to know the maps, know the physics, know the trajectory and most likely path of the player in order to kill them. OR... you can just 1 v 1 in a few incredibly intense seconds with the blunderbuss.
At the end of the day, it's good to jump into Quake 3 and shotgun some bots, but only Screencheat will let me do it without player models.....
WITH A HOBBY HORSE.

This game is a great game. It takes one of the most hated thing in games and makes you use it to kill people. Once you get a kill you feel amazing and feel skilled. This is fun with friends because you can say "AHAHAAHA I KILLED YOU"

Verdict: 9.5/10

I bought this game expecting to be able to play online with others and have a good time, and now I can't play with anyone but myself, which is not a pleasant experience. The game has a server browser option but no one is ever online! $10 wasted.

It's alot of good fun, I use to screencheat alot at halo and this brings back the good ol'e days of splitscreen gaming.. I don't get the chance to play many splitscreen games anymore, my friends have got kids now and such.. But playing online it's still splitscreen so it still has that "local" splitscreen feel to it, probably even more so when you get mics on and get a few beers in with some online buddies :)

You can also incorperate local and online mp, so you could have you and your friend sitting next to you, while playing 4 player splitscreen with 2 more players over the internet!

It's a very interesting concept and the weapons have a nice feel to them like you would want in an FPS game, movement is fast paced, guns feel solid and engaging and generally it's just alot of fun and a very unique way of bringing back splitscreen gaming era
