After years in development and touring various game conventions, SpyParty is finally out on Steam Early Access. To celebrate, there's a new trailer released for the launch.
SpyParty is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where one player plays the spy and the other a sniper. The spy must mingle and act like one of the various NPCs populating a specific area. That means adopting some quirks or mannerisms associated with that character. The sniper must then try and figure out who the spy is and assassinate them.
The spy wins if they successfully complete their objectives while the sniper wins if they can figure out who the spy is and murder them. Check out the new trailer below.
SpyParty has been in development for over eight years by game developer Chris Hecker. The game has been shared in closed beta and various events for years, but the Early Access release means that it will be available to a far larger pool of players.
No word yet on when the full launch of the game is, but hopefully it won't be as long as the game's been in a closed beta. Or maybe it should and try to gun for being the longest game in-development? That would be fun, if frustrating for players who've been waiting as long as they have to play SpyParty.
Caty will be checking out SpyParty later today and we'll deliver some deeper thoughts and coverage on the game as we dive in. Until then, you can check out the Steam Early Access page and dive-in on the long-awaited game.
