Screencheat Beta Is Closing - The Future & Your Reward

August 29

Hello Screencheaters!

First of all, thank you so much for joining us during the public beta of Screencheat. Thanks to your input, we have implemented a number of bug fixes, tweaked the balance of weapons, and stress tested our online servers. We couldn't have done this without your help, so once again we appreciate your support!

To thank you for being part of the public beta you will be receiving a free DLC code at a later date, with a little something special to thank you for helping us test and shape the game. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, so we would like to remind you that the Screencheat public beta will be closing on September 3rd, 2014. So make sure you get some friends involved, and make sure you get some more matches in before then.

If you want to keep Screencheating, you can purchase the game from Steam and save 34% from the full release price. We will be dropping one more content pack towards the end of September, which will add a new game mode and a new map.

Finally, Samurai Punk will be attending PAX Prime as a member of the Indie Megabooth. They are debuting a brand new weapon, the perplexing Hobby Horse, and we wanted to give everyone a chance to play with it before the beta closes. So when you log into Steam you can expect an awesome update to make your weekend just a little better.

About the 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

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

An enjoyable game for those who think CoD matches are too slow.

Screencheat requires you to be on the move constantly whereas games like CoD, BF, and the likes all have their campers. In this game, other players can see exactly where you are(at least from your/their point of view) so camping is useless since they can see what you are seeing and kill you from behind. Because of that, you have to be moving non-stop while also glancing at the other three screens to see where the opponents are. It's a lot harder than it sounds because glancing at the other screens is a near requirement to survive however the intensity of the game makes it hard for one to glance away from your little quadrant on the screen. The maps are quite small so there is little to no moments for reprieve during a match lest you be blown away by a well aimed grenade. Certain map functions like air vents increase your mobility and allows you to do sneak attacks but be prepared to be shot out of the air due to the predictability of the air vents.

There are only two gamemodes at this time: A free for all Deathmatch and a King of the Hill match. A King of the Hill match is basically camping(if you can even call it that) at a specific location to gather points while waiting for the inevitable death to claim you in the form of a blunderbuss or a grenade. Deathmatch currently only supporst to 10 points per game so a player has to get to 10 kills max.

Currently, there are two maps available. The first is a Museum map with a huge fossil in the middle. There is a ramp that leads to the top, an elevator that leads you to the top floor, and an air vent that drags you to the floor below it. It's quite easy to score points on this map (IMO) because the ramp makes enemy movements extremely predictable. The second map is a garden with air vents on the bottom of the floor that can boost you to around the middle of the map or even farther. The map is slightly symmetrical in it's shape and is a lot harder to get kills on(for me at least). One positive note about this map is that in a 4 player server or 2 player server, the map's color changes so you can easily locate the enemy. In a two player server, one half of the map is blue while the other is red. In a 4 player server, the map is split into quadrants with a different color in each. Despite this, I still failed at this map compared to the Museum :p

A small thing to note is the kill feed which is EXTREMELY satisfying. More often than not, it gives a small line at the top of the screen that says "_____ creamed ____" or something that basically says that you got owned. A few times, the entire screen would be filled with the text in CAPS basically rubbing it into your face that you were killed or that you killed someone. It's hilarious but causes you to screw up because you can't see where you're going and you cam be killed by another player in the few short seconds the message stays on the screen. But it is satisfying XD

4 players, every one invisible. Screencheating is the only way to win. Really fun, highly recommended. Plus the best kill messages by far in any game.

Possible 4-player online multiplayer where you can see everyones screen but can not see anyones character.
Best way to describe this game is hide and seek where you know where everyone else is mixed with tag where you tag others with guns! Pre-order this game now it deserves a large community just because the concept of it.
