What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Better in Red team wants to create the best possible experience for Hideout and for that reason we have launched this game in Early Access, so we can collect feedback and see the opinion of the players themselves.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe Hideout will remain in Early Access for approximately six months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We want to expand the features of the Early Access version in the final version, adding more content and polishing the existing content. We would like to expand and improve May's adventure through the town, integrating more levels, enemies and interactive objects to complete the game experience. The goal of this project would be to add another hour and a half of content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access status of this game means that all the elements that make up the general gameplay are included (movement mechanics, hiding, general enemy functionality, throwable items) and the general progression between levels is also designed and tested. However, the systems are not yet perfectly balanced and we still need time and work to reach the experience we want to achieve.

The following content can be found:
  • Four functional levels (one in the forest, two in the town and one in the laboratory).
  • A world set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia.
  • Craft and use four objects with different functionalities.
  • Face five types of enemies with different functionalities and behaviors.
  • Cross the town and get to the lab to save May's little brother.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No. The price will not increase, the game will remain free, to give access to as many people as possible to get as many views as possible.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community input is key to the overall development. At Better in Red, we are looking to get as much feedback from players as possible to optimize and polish the Hideout experience.”

About This Game

Immerse yourself in this third person stealth adventure, set in a world devastated by war against an artificial intelligence that brought down society as we knew it. Play as May, a survivor living in a bunker in the mountains that must go on a quest to find medicine for her sickly brother, Jack. In her way, she will meet the robots designed by the AI to hunt down humanity, an assembly of war machines who will not hesitate to kill her on sight. Her only way to survive will be to stay in the shadows and remain undetected, using her environment as cover.

May has a tool that allows her to interact with various devices along the town: opening doors, powering generators, finding hidden information and crafting various objects that will help her along the way by distracting her enemies, revealing them or and even incapacitating them.

In this slow-paced adventure game, the bleak setting and narrative create a tense and oppressive atmosphere that enhances the experience. May’s vulnerability only adds to the feeling of helplessness against the war machines: if she is found, it’s GAME OVER. Will you help May to save her brother and find the secret hidden within this town?

Key Features:

  • Navigate through three different environments: forest, town and laboratory.
  • Face five different types of enemies, each with a different function.
  • Discover the collectibles that hold a secret story.
  • Solve the enigmas of the mysterious town.
  • Create and use four different objects that interact with the enemies.
