Gameplay

Hide and Shriek is a one vs. one multiplayer game where the purpose is to earn points by scaring the opponent as many times as possible within 10 minutes.

Various objects and abilities are available such as casting spells, summoning demons, setting traps, and jumpscares. Both players are invisible, but can be tracked by observing for doors opening and objects flying in the air or tricking them into revealing their location. [1] [4]

Development

Hide and Shriek was announced on October 4th with the release of a teaser trailer. [2] [4]
