About

OBEY is a highly asymmetrical multiplayer game.

We've all played games where you send commands to AI units or teammates.
OBEY instead puts you in the position to command your enemies (human opponents), and to be commanded by them. Players are always free to obey/disobey. It is always up to players to deal with the consequences of their decisions in the game.

You win by bribing and coercing your opponents to do things against their own self interest (and in your interest).
If you are being coerced you have only stealth, intelligence, trickery, and creativity to escape.

OBEY is sort of like Counter Strike Jailbreak Mod meets Spy Party.
OBEY's social aspects have also been compared to Trouble in Terrorist Town and Town of Salem.

To win, make more money than any one else by the end of the round.
To make the most money, take command of the giant robot (the robot player makes 10x more than the other players per second)
You take control of it by walking into a door at the base of the robot.
The player in the robot can easily destroy any player he sees trying to approach (IF he sees them).
That’s the basics – so superficially, it plays like ‘king of the hill’.

However...
Experienced robot players will know that it is not always in their interest to simply kill approaching players.
Why not? Because he can instead coerce them to do what he wants.
and that’s where the game gets interesting…

BUNNY GUARD AT WORK!NOTES ABOUT GAMEPLAY:
  • When playing as robo... you are free to shoot everything that moves (and this might even work against friends or new players), but if you just use this against experienced players you will get subverted, and you will lose. You want your opponents controlled, not hidden and out to subvert you...
  • When playing as a bunny... trying to constantly subvert in the face of an experienced robo is a terrible idea: you will spend most of your game waiting to spawn. OBEY rewards using TRICKERY, STEALTH, and INTELLIGENCE. OBEY does not reward constant blind 'guns blazing' rushing to the robot. (But what did you expect? you are a baby bunny .vs an enormous mecha-canon-turret).
    REMEMBER: You will be playing against other human beings - they can not be fooled as easily as AI!

Early Access Review hi ... I can only say that the game pretty laune makes with several ... It's not finished yet and the developer has assured me that he's softer, but it's great so I can recommend it to anyone who likes to play funny games with his friends ... Makes real laune

Early access review review written on Thursday, March 31st, 2016 review attention, first of all, the game requires a microphone, to be able to play in multi (and I have none). I have only tested the game mode against bots, and this is unfortunately not very interesting, because we lose all the strategic side of the game, I imagine. Rating: 5.5/10 pros: must show all its interest in multi possibility to turn against its partners cons: the graphics are not Super maneuverability is difficult the accompaniment of new players is non-existent version Linux rowing on my Portable (DELL precision M3800) hardware information hardware type monitor monitor headphones headphones keyboard keyboard controller x360 wireless mouse mouse microphone none motherboard MSI B150 PC mate CPU Intel Core i5 6500 GPU Radeon HD 7870 2Gb RAM 8Gb PC17000 DDR4 OS Win7 x64 HDD SSD 64Gb HDD 500Gb Disclaimer: source of consideration: Dan dez

Early Access Review Wow! What a different Game. After a Tutorial that Explains basics but still leaves you perplexed for the Game, you are thrown into the cold Water and are supposed to look for a Game online to learn. What there is to learn is not so easy in said game at first, you play a little Rodent whose Job it is to collect Things. That brings Points to you and the Supervisor. This Supervisor has a powerful Arsenal Of weapons and can defend himself well against Cross-ulators. So One is in Dichotomy, whether one goes about the regulated collecting, or whether one strives for a Revolt, at the End Of which one may find oneself in the Ruling Position. If you go it alone, it usually doesn't end so well:) Graphically, the whole thing is rather expedient, also gives one or the other Clipping error. As far as the Control is concerned, there is also a controller control that works without any problems. It should be noted that the Game is a pure Multiplayer game, that is, the Experience stands and falls with the Players. The Game is currently still in early access status. I am very excited about the further Development, because even though not all is Gold at the moment, the Concept is quite unique and offers great Potential. At The moment I am still struggling to recommend an Acquisition at a Full Price, but the 4-pack is very courteously priced. From my Point of view, therefore, a Thumbs up:)
