About

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!User Feedback

Hidden in Plain Sight reviews and comments

Way more fun than a simple asset flip is supposed to be

What to say about it ... Incredible Fun in The Style of Hide and Seek and all together in front of a Screen. Absolutely entry-friendly, so even People who otherwise never gamble will have their Fun here. I can recommend the Game unreservedly, whether as a Drinking Game or even in between. Gamepads, in my Opinion, are definitely necessary. The Only Criticism is that not all Modes make sense and it may cause the Variety to suffer a little, but especially in the Sale a clear Purchase. You can't go wrong.

Already played many times on Xbox 360 it is an excellent party game, a very nice concept, excelelentissime to 4. The concept is simple: you all move on the screen, but you all look alike and nothing tells you who you are. It will therefore be necessary at first to recognize without revealing to others, while finding who is who, because there are also NPCs that move like you! Either you kill the others, knowing that by hitting you will inevitably reveal yourself, so do not be mistaken, or then touch the 3 posts that make a sound every time uqu'n player touches them... There are other modes of play, but overall it plays on the fact of being hidden while being visible on the screen. It's up to you to be smarter. Frankly good laughing bars between buddies. On the other hand it is local only, no multi online, no solo!

Hidden in plain sight is nothing less than the rolls of multiplayer games locally and this for several reasons: the first, which is also the least deserving, is that the genre is so under represented on our PCs compared to the total available games that it is a shame, there are some games that is played on two on the same screen, but from 3 or even 4 players, apart from the simulations of collective sport, it is nothingness. So just be a good game in this category to be in the tops of the genre, but HIPS to other arguments to argue: 1. four games in one: HIPS, it's four little games based on an ingenious principle of concealing his avatar and discovering this him from the others, a kind of big virtual cache or one learns to melt his little character in the midst of dozens of others managed by the AI of the game and from 1 to 3 opponents that nothing distinguishes from all others if not their behavior... 2. simple and casual: simple mechanics and accessible to all immediately, including non-gamers, children and other technophobes. 3. fast and rhythmic: each part lasts between 1 and 5 minutes big Max, we have fun and we laugh. 4. crazy laugh and bang ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ★ ♥ guarantee: as in any good multi-local that respects, it's nice, it's bad, it's getting tired. HIPS also has the flaws of its qualities, it is a purely multiplayer game that has absolutely no interest in solo and reveals all its potential only to four players (even if it remains fun to three and playable to two). Typically the perfect game to laugh with buddies between two pieces of pizza, HIPS is a nugget of its kind.
