Developer(s): Automaton Games, Baseline

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows

Age Rating: 13+

Deceit is a game all about infecting your friends with a deadly virus. There are 6 players in each round, two of them have been infected and you’re all locked in a dungeon together.

During the day, the infected need to look for bags of blood, whereas, everyone else goes around picking up items and deciding who to vote out. To vote out a player, all you need to do is shoot or stab them.

When a blackout occurs, you’ll need to place fuses in order to make it to the next area, but be careful of the infected as they’ll turn into monsters and go around biting people.

Project Winter

Platform(s): Microsoft Windows

Age Rating: 13+

In Project Winter, your mission is to survive the cold and hunger levels long enough to complete tasks and call for help. However, if you happen to be a traitor, your job is to lead a crewmate into the illness, shoot them in the back, and then blame it on a bear.

Being a crewmate will require you to work with your team to survive, complete tasks, and eventually escape the wilderness. You can’t kill any suspected traitors by committee, however, you can vote people out of the main house, which puts them at risk from the elements.

But beware, it’s not only the traitors you need to be careful of… As you move through the wilderness, you will come across wild beasts looking through a snack, preferably you. So keep an eye out!
