Screencheat Publishing + Soundtrack Update

Hey everybody!

We’re happy to announce that Screencheat is now fully self-published by Samurai Punk, allowing us to finally declare this game to be 100% “indie AF”.

To celebrate, our talented musician Psilatron (formerly ana_mana) has graced us with a slew of hot new tracks to update the Screencheat soundtrack! These five bonus tracks were inspired by the sounds and vibes of the Nintendo 64-era, particularly Goldeneye 64 which we’re told was pretty popular.

The soundtrack is available to stream on Youtube and to purchase on Bandcamp.

Plus, those with the Deluxe Edition will be receiving an updated OST with the bonus tracks and the whole thing in glorious FLAC. There’s also dope new cover artwork.

We’ve also added a cheeky link to our Discord for the Samurai Punk community, our cute little corner of the interwebs where you can hang with cool peeps and find out about our latest developments. Sign up here:

Thanks again for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the new songs!

Much Love,
Samurai Punk

“Screencheat is the Mario Kart of first person shooters and I absolutely mean that as a compliment”

“Easy going in tone but frantic and stressful by nature, Screencheat seizes on a single novel idea and builds an enjoyable couch shooter around it.”
7.8 – PC Gamer

“Glancing at someone else’s screen and knowing exactly where they are would be nigh-on impossible in most shooters, but Samurai Punk combats this through some smart level design.”

Full Controller Support

Screencheat has full Steam Controller support including supporting multiple controllers to use touchpad mouse aiming.

Other controllers supported include Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 controllers.

About This Game

Screencheat is the ridiculous split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible so you have to “screencheat” (Screencheat - verb: to look at your opponent’s screens. “Stop screencheating you cheater!”). Master a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons including a blunderbuss, a car engine that shoots bouncing plasma balls and a teddy bear loaded with explosives. Train your skills in the solo time trials then engage in fast and frantic combat with up to eight players locally on the couch or online. With colourful maps, unique modes and a huge number of customisation options including wacky mutators, Screencheat is the ultimate party FPS.

Ranging from the dependable Blunderbuss to the heroic Hobby Horse to the completely crazy Chefolet; a car engine that fires ricocheting energy balls, all are designed to deliver deadly satisfaction. Each weapon comes with its own unique advantages and disadvantages, encouraging wildly different play styles. These include not only the way a weapon shoots but also the 'tells' the weapon leaves such as the smoke from the blunderbuss or the trail of fire behind the Hobby Horse.

From traditional favourites such as Deathmatch to the completely unique Murder Mystery that challenges you to find and frag your specific target with a specific weapon. Play in teams or all against all. Challenge up to seven of your mates on the couch or online or a combination of both, the game is always split screen whether you are on or offline. When your friends aren't around, train your skills and learn the maps in the solo time trials or play against AI bots.

In the spirit of the best arena shooters you’ll spend time traversing 11 maps via air vents and trampolines until you’ve acquired your target and fragged them accordingly. Each map is designed with colour-coded areas as well as plentiful landmarks such as statues, paintings and furniture that allow you to quickly locate other players without being able to actually see them.

Inspired by games like Towerfall we've provided players with a highly granular level of customisation to play the game the way they want to. Choose which weapons you'll allow, how and when they can be swapped or reloaded, apply time limits, adjust the victory conditions, penalties and more. To really mix it up stack on some Mutators such as slow mode, low gravity or flappy jump.
