The Red Stare wins TWO Dutch Game Awards!

The Dutch Game Awards 2017 happened last Friday, and The Red Stare won 2 out of 3 awards it was nominated for: 'Best Student Art Direction' and 'Best Student Game Design'.

We are extremely excited and humbled to receive both of these awards for the game that we spent so much time on.

The Red Stare has been a foundational project for all of us. We learnt and developed our skills quite a lot by working on this game: it has definitely been one of the best, but certainly also one of the most challenging things many of us have worked on.

Obviously, there is much more that can be said about the The Red Stare, its future, us as a team, and how this will affect us-- but for now, we will be reflecting on what is arguably one of our proudest achievements so far!

Thanks from everyone at Play:D!

About This Game

The Time to Enlist Is Now!

In The Red Stare, you become a special agent in 1950s New York City on a stake out. The Reds have infiltrated the city, and you need to stop them before it's too late.
During your stake out you will be observing your neighbours' every move to find out who of them is the communist spy.

From within your apartment you'll be receiving information via your phone and fax machine, finding clues in case files, and taking pictures that you can fax to your handler - proving that your suspicions are right.

It's all about observation and deduction. You’ll have to use a number of different ways to identify people varying from appearances, items that can be found in their rooms, and rules only specific members of the communist ranks follow.

Good luck, agent! The nation depends on you.
