About This Game

LOCAL-MULTIPLAYER ONLY. NO SINGLE PLAYER OR ONLINE. REQUIRES XBOX COMPATIBLE (OR EMULATED) CONTROLLERS.


Hidden in Plain Sight is a set of local multiplayer (2-4 players) game modes that share a common theme: trying to accomplish goals without drawing attention to yourself.

In each game mode, players control characters in a sea of identical NPCs. Players are given a task, but also the means to eliminate each other from the game. The goal is to blend in with the NPCs, accomplish the task at hand, and take out other players before they get you.

One of the simplest game modes is called "Death Race." Players and NPCs are racing to be the first to cross a finish line. Each player has a gun with one bullet, and can eliminate one person from the race. Do you sprint ahead, calling attention to yourself but maximizing you chances of winning? Or do you hang back with the pack?

Other game modes create similar tension by putting players in a conflicted position of wanting to accomplish a goal, but risking elimination by doing so.

Rounds are quick and lively, and always end in laughter and friendly shouting. So grab your controllers and friends and give it a shot!

A "Local Multiplayer Only" Must Buy.

We've logged sometime on this game, and feel it's a fun time filler. You can pick it up and play a few rounds of the mini-game of your choice and play for either a couple of minutes or for long durations.
The mini-games are different enough to be interesting, but similar enough that the gameplay controls don't require a lot of extra thought (when playing with casual gamers).

It's a good game to have if you have a couple of XBox 360 controllers and friends. Simple and entertaining. Watch a gameplay video on YouTube to see if the mini-games are up your alley.

Such a simplistic game, but absolutely a riot. First, figure out which of the "NPCs" on the board is actually you. Next, make sure nobody else does. And finally, meet a goal. Could be killing the other players, touching a series of statues, or running a race while the others have exactly one shot to shoot who they think is you. Can only be played locally, 2 players, but it's tons of fun. Highly recommend. Just a matter of time before you see people making clones of this. Such a simple premise, but such good gameplay.

This is an easy one, if you have (or sometimes have) someone to play with, GET IT. This has been one of the best buys of my life, while playing the room fills with tension and laughter; a great time for everyone.

Along with Bomberman this is one of the best "local-one-screen-party-games" you could try. Grab four controllers and a bunch of friends and get it on. Thumbs up for easy but addictive gameplay.
