Screencheat Embraces Screencheating

Surprise Attack Games announces Screencheat, a first-person shooter where players are invisible, requiring they cheat by peaking at each others' screens, normally an act of war in local multiplayer games. The plan is to launch beta testing on August 4th and to release the game for Windows, Linux, and OS X later this year. This trailer takes a peek at how players can take a peek at their opponents' locations via a split screen view, which shows how this works online. Here's word on the game, which includes details on how to take part in the beta:

Wannabe screen cheaters can try out Screencheat for themselves from the 4th of August, when the game enters into beta. Surprise Attack Games and Samurai Punk understand that very few people will actually admit to cheating (it took Lance Armstrong over a decade), so in order to distribute codes discreetly, a semi-anonymous registration form has been developed on the official Screencheat website. We’ll need to grab your email address so we can send you the redeemable code, but we promise not to publically name and shame you as a cheater!

In the Screencheat arena, fast reaction times aren’t enough to keep you alive. When all your enemies are invisible, players will have to master the art of taking a not-so sneaky look at their opponent’s screens and working out where they are based on uniquely coloured areas of the map and distinctive landmarks.
