Screencheat is a ridiculous competitive split-screen first-person shooter where everyone is invisible, so players are forced to look at each other’s screens in order to win. Supporting both local and online multiplayer, combat in Screencheat is fast and furious with a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons.

Announcing Samurai Punk's Next Game: The American Dream

Hi everyone!

We're excited to finally unveil what we've been working on these past few months. Our next big game is titled The American Dream!

Look down the barrel of a future where all your everyday needs are solved with guns.

Samurai Punk presents The American Dream, a satirical virtual reality trip through a 1950’s world’s fair where you learn to live your life with guns. Players travel through a vast complex constructed by a group of respected gun manufacturers aiming to show the world the virtues of guns for the common man.

The world of The American Dream sets its sights on a future where guns are used for all manner of things like eating a meal, driving a car or working to provide for your family. With weapons ranging from pistols to rifles and shotguns, you’ll learn how guns will take care of all your day-to-day needs! Bite the bullet and come on down, you’re guaranteed to have a blast every time at The American Dream!

The game is coming to major VR platforms in 2017.

Teaser trailer:

We'll be showing the game at PAX West 2016, so if you're around, please come on by, say hi and give the teaser a try!

Thank you again for all your support on Screencheat, and we hope that you'll continue to follow us as we move forward! :)

Much Love,
Samurai Punk

“Screencheat is the Mario Kart of first person shooters and I absolutely mean that as a compliment”

“Easy going in tone but frantic and stressful by nature, Screencheat seizes on a single novel idea and builds an enjoyable couch shooter around it.”
7.8 – PC Gamer

“Glancing at someone else’s screen and knowing exactly where they are would be nigh-on impossible in most shooters, but Samurai Punk combats this through some smart level design.”

About This Game

Screencheat is the ridiculous split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible so you have to “screencheat” (Screencheat - verb: to look at your opponent’s screens. “Stop screencheating you cheater!”). Master a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons including a blunderbuss, a car engine that shoots bouncing plasma balls and a teddy bear loaded with explosives. Train your skills in the solo time trials then engage in fast and frantic combat with up to eight players locally on the couch or online. With colourful maps, unique modes and a huge number of customisation options including wacky mutators, Screencheat is the ultimate party FPS.

Ranging from the dependable Blunderbuss to the heroic Hobby Horse to the completely crazy Chefolet; a car engine that fires ricocheting energy balls, all are designed to deliver deadly satisfaction. Each weapon comes with its own unique advantages and disadvantages, encouraging wildly different play styles. These include not only the way a weapon shoots but also the 'tells' the weapon leaves such as the smoke from the blunderbuss or the trail of fire behind the Hobby Horse.

From traditional favourites such as Deathmatch to the completely unique Murder Mystery that challenges you to find and frag your specific target with a specific weapon. Play in teams or all against all. Challenge up to seven of your mates on the couch or online or a combination of both, the game is always split screen whether you are on or offline. When your friends aren't around, train your skills and learn the maps in the solo time trials or play against AI bots.

In the spirit of the best arena shooters you’ll spend time traversing 11 maps via air vents and trampolines until you’ve acquired your target and fragged them accordingly. Each map is designed with colour-coded areas as well as plentiful landmarks such as statues, paintings and furniture that allow you to quickly locate other players without being able to actually see them.

Inspired by games like Towerfall we've provided players with a highly granular level of customisation to play the game the way they want to. Choose which weapons you'll allow, how and when they can be swapped or reloaded, apply time limits, adjust the victory conditions, penalties and more. To really mix it up stack on some Mutators such as slow mode, low gravity or flappy jump.

TWO SENTENCES! Ridiculously clever, new and fresh concept with fun, colorful, gameplay. This game is my absolute favourite local co-op part game that I have ever played that earns an easy 10/10 for anyone that has friends and has a spare (non-destroyed) controller in their drawer.

Goldeneye with the invisible cheat on! Great fun game reminds me of if Hotline Miami was a first person shooter with another nice retro wave sound track. Player base is really small though which is a shame. Goldeneye Source has been around for over ten years now and Timesplitters Rewind is in the works. Wish the game gained more attention to the public eye. It's kinda like Gang Beasts except not as well known. Still a amazing game that is aching for attention and more couch play experiences and online players. It's one of those games where I have a smile about 95% of the time.

Such a clever idea, and so well done. 15 dollars may be a bit steep for some people, but it's definitely worth it on sale.

My 7 year old son loves to play this one with me. He has never played a FPS before, but caught quickly and is now bear-bombing his father to the giggling delight of his sisters. Fun for the friends, family and whoever else that loves to 'cheat' at FPSs.

Step 1. Do something that is considered wrong in all other cases.
Step 2. Use your otherwise illegal informaton to kill someone.
Step 3. Die, because someone else did the same.

Wonderful concept, beautiful execution.

10/10, would Screencheat again.

Possibly the most entertaining multiplayer First-Person Shooter out there right now.

Focus is on couch mulitplayer over online, but this game offers both, and you can even play "couch and online" together. The developers are constantly tweaking and improving the game, and are very responsive to feedback. It's a little buggy on occasion, but that's part of its charm.

If you are looking for a FPS off the beaten path (and this one is faaar off the path), this game is it.

Interesting idea, but it's better on paper than in practice. Got boring very quickly.

Doesn't help that there is no content updates and the playerbase is dead.

DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

Screencheat is a game developed by Samurai Punk and published by Surprise Attack, it is an old school, fast paced shooter fun which includes five or more maps, six game modes, eight or more weapons and four players. Surprisngly, the community is incredibly friendly! Screencheat is greatly replayable. However, it can be difficult finding a lobby as with most indie games

Screencheat is a fun yet challenging to game alone or even better with your friends!
