On the one hand, the premise of this game seems interesting. On the other hand, sounds like this is the ultimate griefing bullshit game, anybody with some actual experience playing it?
Why don't I just download it, you ask? Well, like most people under an ISP monopoly, I currently have a data cap.
Since you haven't gotten a reply, I'll throw in my two cents:
I only just grabbed it during the free weekend, so I only have about an hour and a half on it so far. With that said, here's some bullets for ya (in no particular order):
- I don't see any griefing, at least in the early game. However, looking at Steam reviews, apparently that changes in the later game, due to perks
- You gain points per match, which you spend on perks, equipment, etc.
- On the survivor side, you have to repair some generators which give power to a door. Once that door is powered, you can open it to escape
- Teamwork is definitely needed, as you can save each other, heal each other, and repair the generators together
- On the killer side, you damage the people, then hang them up on hooks. Survivors can try to get off themselves, or have a teammate help them off. If that fails, they are sacrificed, and out of the game
- After you escape, or are sacrificed, you have the option of going to another game, quitting altogether, or spectating your teammates
- You have some warning when the killer gets close, with a sound cue of your heartbeat speeding up
- A downfall is that there are no dedicated servers. The killer is the host of the game, so you're dependent on their connection. In my experience, it was pretty good, however
- No in game chat. Survivors can only point, or motion to follow. Would be nice to have a thank emote though
- When a killer is carrying someone, that person can try to wiggle free. Interestingly, it affects your heading when you're doing the carrying. Like the person is actually causing you to stagger
I know I'm forgetting some things, but that's all I can think of right now. So far, I think it's pretty damn fun. However, I can see it getting old after a bit, since, while there are different maps, there's only the one game mode.
