In 2015, Supermassive Games released a fun game called Until Dawn. It is a horror game where you control 8 different people and make choices that determine whether all 8 survive the night, or if they all end up dead. When it was released I thought it would be fun to get all my friends together and play it – when it came to important choices we’d all yell and scream and it was like watching and being a part of an interactive horror movie. It ended up being an event where we stayed up literally until dawn and finished the game in one sitting. And all of us had a lot of fun doing it.
Now as it turns out, apparently I wasn’t the only one to have this idea as Supermassive got a lot of feedback from friends about how much fun it was to play the game as an event with a bunch of people watching. So that spawned their latest game – Hidden Agenda – a game similar to Until Dawn where you have two protagonists and have to make choices to see if they survive the entire plot. Except they specifically designed this game to be multiplayer so everyone playing can put in their votes to determine the outcome. And not only that, but it was only $20 – and since my friends and I had such a great time with Until Dawn, I figured I’d get them together again and we’d play through it. Everyone was down for the idea and so this past weekend we all played through Hidden Agenda from start to finish.
