From the guys that brought you No Games Yet, comes a new asymmetrical PC multiplayer
Vogelsap has released a gameplay movie for The Flock, a game set on a dark and grim future Earth of the year 3000. The Flock will feature asymmetrical online multiplayer in which players start out as the Flock and need to go in search of the solar capsule, also known as the light artifact. Grabbing the artifact will transform the player into the Carrier.
As the Carrier, you need to survive as long as possible and try to hold the artifact for a set amount of time in order to win the game. However hunting Flock might be lurking around the corner and kill you in an instant and steal the light artifact for themselves, in their turn becoming the new Carrier. Flock are bigger, faster and can reach far higher places than the Carrier. But the Carrier is not helpless. It can use the solar capsule to spot moving players which will be burned to their death in an instant as a result. In their defense, Flock players can decide not to move and be safe from the light.
The dark atmosphere will help making it an engaging, sometimes even scary game. Players will switch roles from hunter and being hunted. This will make it a psychological experience in which players must deal with their weaknesses very carefully and play to their strengths or be outsmarted by other players.
The Flock will be available via Steam soon.
