About This Game

Plain Sight is a multiplayer arcade game about suicidal ninja robots.
Fly through space, leap over planetoids and destroy opponents with your trusty katana.
Killing fellow robots lets you steal their tasty, tasty energy. Packed with spinach-like goodness; energy makes you bigger, stronger, faster and generally more awesome.
Being all big and badass is great, but in this game it doesn’t win you the match. It makes you a target.
To win, you have to convert your energy into points...
How do you do this? Simple. Kill yourself.
Press the button and turn your happy little robot into a vicious ball of enemy-absorbing plasma. The more opponents you take out, the better.
Upgrade your robot, respawn and get stuck in again...

This was the first game I ever got on Steam. IN FACT...it was the game that my friend told me he was gifting to me, which meant I had to install Steam. Ah, I'm so glad I did. :D #nostalgia #thankyouLordDust

AS for the game, it's a third-person suicidal robot simulator. You go around slicing up other robots with your sword and then when you want your kills to COUNT, you have to self-distruct yourself.

Sounds simple, right? Well, it would be if it weren't for the fact you can run on walls, ceilings, etc. Basically any surface on the map you automagically cling to it. The 'bound/unbound' mechanic takes a little bit to get used to, but it's a unique game & one I recommend at least TRYING once in your life.

*edit [12/21/15]: I just heard multiplayer servers are down. :( I don't know much else, but if MP comes back in any way, I'll update*

this is such a fun awesome game!!
------------------------------------

But its dead.

There are no servers.

The bots arent very hard.

Nobody plays this.

It deserves better.

its not a bad game.

Its awesome.

But alas, it has fallen into the deepest depths of.... THE STEAM STORE......

Its a good game, its pretty fun, but nobody, and I mean NOBODY, plays the multiplayer!

4/10

it would be a 7/10 if the multiplayer wasn't as dead as my soul

Pre-Release Review
This game is awesome and super fun. Sadly there is no multiplayer crowd left. So unless you are planning to have a super fun lan party then don't buy this game.

The only reason I can't recommend this game is that the multiplayer is completely dead.

If the multiplayer was alive and kicking, it would be a blast. But, unfortunately, it went the way of so many other indie online games and the multiplayer died.
