January Update – Map Update and 2019

Hi all,

We hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year and are enjoying Deceit now that Halloween has finally finished. We wanted to provide you with an update with what’s going on in the studio at the moment and what’s coming up in the short- and longer-term for Deceit.

In the short term, the studio’s priorities are primarily focussed on other projects, primarily Mavericks: Proving Grounds. This won’t come as a surprise to many of you. Because of this, the game is not going to be heavily developed from a technical standpoint for the next 6+ months – this means no major updates, no substantial new changes.

However, you were promised a new map and we are working on this presently.

Many in the studio still want to help Deceit grow and develop and so, on their own time, teams are helping finalise the new map before we share it with you all. Exact timelines are unknown currently, but we expect to share this before the end of March.

This doesn’t mean Deceit is dead, far from it. With the new platform and technology going into Mavericks, the studio’s plan is to bring over some of these new capabilities into Deceit. This will however take time and we expect for these substantial changes to be incorporated towards the end of 2019.

So, with so little happening technically, and future plans a long way off, what are we doing in the interim? We plan on doing a number of community-focused activities and events including in-game tournaments, competitions (e.g. Fan Art, Cosplay), amongst some other initiatives which we’ll be sharing more information about in the coming weeks.

Let us know what you think about what’s coming up on our Discord, we’d appreciate the feedback and comments you have.

About This Game

Deceit tests your instincts at trust and deception in an action-filled, multiplayer first-person shooter. You wake up in unknown surroundings to the sound of the Game Master’s unfamiliar voice. Surrounded by five others, a third of your group have been infected with the Game Master’s deadly virus and tasked with taking down the other innocent players. Innocents must stay alert, traverse the three zones and escape through the safety hatch as the infected try to pick you off one by one.

When playing as an innocent, you’ll progress through the map and come across items to help you survive as you advance towards the exit. However, you will need to decide which of these are most valuable to you, and whether to collaborate or fight with other players to get your hands on them. Every decision gives you more information on your teammates and what side they’re likely to be on.

A test of strategy and skill, innocents must work work together to gather weapons, secure objectives and vote out those suspected of infection to strengthen their chances of survival. But the environment has been setup to cause conflict amongst the group, creating doubt about the true intentions of players. The infected will be busy collecting bloody and trying to cover up their sabotage attempts, whilst the innocents will be keeping an eye out for suspicious behaviour and attempting to make alliances with those they think they can trust.

At the end of each zone, a blackout period occurs, allowing the infected players to transform into their terror form and attack. You’ll need this form to kill innocent players. In terror form you’re faster, stronger, and have better vision than your innocent victims and with an array of intense killing animations you’ll be able to create some frightening but also amusing gameplay!


Deceit combines the frenzy of fast paced combat mixed with strategic gameplay, and of course the psychological mind games of determining who you can trust.
