Update Notes

Play Hidden in Plain Sight ONLINE?!

Steam has just released a new Beta version of the Steam Client. Google how to get the beta.

Once you have the beta, you should be able to play Hidden in Plain Sight ONLINE! The best news is that ONLY the host needs to own the game!

  • Start the Hidden in Plain Sight game
  • Shift-Tab to bring up the Steam Overlay
  • Find a friend in your friends list
  • Right click and do "Remote Play Together"
  • This should send an invitation to your friend to join.

Note that your friend needs a controller, too.

Let me know if this works! I haven't tried it yet.

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!
