Today, Pixel Engineers announced that it will release its chaotic party game Hunt ‘n Sneak on PC November 7. The game will feature couch multiplayer as players choose to try and eat Pixies as Gobblers or evade Gobblers as Pixies.
Hunt ‘n Sneak is a manic couch multiplayer game. Players take on the roles of either the fearsome Gobbler as it tries to devour the Pixies and take over their world; or as the mischievous Pixies, who use pings of light to navigate their surroundings and escape the Gobblers. Pursue, evade and outwit your opposition to win.
Hunt ‘n Sneak was inspired by a game the founder of Pixel Engineers worked on during a game jam at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment in Melbourne, Victoria. During this time, the game had the working title of Ping and won first place in the game jam’s category of ‘Couch Multiplayer’.
Since then, Pixel Engineers have transformed Hunt ‘n Sneak into a fully-fledged, energetic multiplayer experience, playable by up to four players simultaneously.
James Koehne, founder of Pixel Engineers, said: “I am very excited to have players experience Hunt ‘n Sneak when it launches on Steam. It’s always joyful to see people playing the game – and knowing that people are enjoying it definitely makes all the time we have spent working on it worthwhile.”
