Funcom Announce ‘Hide and Shriek’ with Teaser Trailer

Competitive scare 'em up to receive Halloween release

Hope you’ve got some clean underwear on, because Hide and Shriek is coming. Soon. Very soon…well in like four weeks or so.

Developed by Funcom, the game is a 1 vs. 1 multiplayer game, with the aim simple: scare your opponent half to death before the time runs out to win. But that’s not the only way to win, if there is no clear winner when the time runs out, the player with the most points wins.

How do you earn points I hear you cry? By being mischievous of course! You can use a combination of sneaking, fiendish traps and magic spells to scare the heebies and the jeebies out of your opponent. Of course, you need to stay firmly glued to your respective edge of any seating device, as they are on the hunt for you too!

The developer has released a teaser trailer on their YouTube page and set a release date for Halloween on Steam.
