Deceit is a six-player multiplayer horror game developed by Automaton.


Deceit is heavily influenced by the Trouble In Terrorist Town Half-Life 2 mod. All six players spawn on a vast map, with several of your group being infected with a virus that allows them to transform in their terror form. The players have to figure out who is infected, kill them or at least attempt an escape.

Most of the time, the map is lit up by portable lamps and projectors, yet there are blackout periods that last several minutes. During these periods, the infected players can transform into the terror form in which they become faster, stronger, and have night vision. They can only be countered using light.

For the non-infected players, there are several objectives placed around the map, like turning on the generators, finding light sources or weapons. These objectives both increase the chance of player survival and sometimes allow the players to escape off the map.

The gameplay heavily relies on its psychological component with the maps being designed in a way to place a seed of doubt in the players' heads. The players have to decide with whom they'd want to stay close to or leave behind. It is necessary to display your intentions correctly, so the game features an emote system, which allows the players who do not have a microphone to interact with the others.

Deceit reviews and comments

Hi Folks, Deciet is a Player versus Player's horror survival game similar to Dead by Daylight. There are 6 Players competing, you have to work your Way through the Map to escape. While 2 Players are incognito As Infected, humanly disguised monsters are on the way to kill the remaining Players. Maybe not Fun for the whole Family, but certainly together with some Friends. Here are a Few of my Youtube Recordings together with a Colleague (but I'm the biggest Nob in it) https://youtu.be/kLvODiIxch0

Very Game for all who love trouble in terrorist town. But!!! It is essential to improve one Thing. The Lamps and Cameras don't immediately dazzle the Monster. That is why I myself have died a number Of times. It should also be easier to heal Players. Once you have been injured, you only have 20 Seconds to be revived or healed. Dead by Daylight made it significantly better in that Aspect. The Players simply have more Chances, with Deceid not doing that. Here it says: Once you are injured, the Round is as good as it is over.

Deceit has become my absolute Favourite game Since the Halloween Event. It is always Fun to find the Infected with my Friends or to trick the Fellow player as a Terror and to lurk up at night. Within a Year, Deceit has made some graphical great Changes, according to the YouTube Videos, and each Event is a small Highlight in its own right. With the Help of The DLC you can even turn into a Werewolf ♥. Another great Idea came with the last Patch, so every Terror Form (with the DLC you have 3 different Terror forms to Choose from) has a unique Skill. It is wonderful to receive the Deceit free of charge in Steam and still it continues to experience positive Developments and Progress. Every Event is a great Chance to collect special Items or Skins. Apart from some Bugs, the Game is an absolute Tip:]
