The prototype for Screencheat was originally built in 48 hours as a part of Global Game Jam 2014. It was an immediate hit, picking up a number of awards at the Melbourne Global Game Jam site and we decided to develop it into a fully fledged release. 

We've spent the last two years working on Screencheat, releasing the first commercial version in October 2014 but continually supporting the game since then, refining the core mechanics and adding tonnes of new features including game modes, maps, AI, weapons, unlockable skins, game mode customisation as well as online multiplayer for up to 8 players. 

We grew up in the 90’s playing games like Goldeneye and cheating by looking at the other players’ screens was such a big part of that experience. We turned this cheating behaviour of the 90’s on it’s head by making it the core mechanic in Screencheat. When everyone is invisible and you have to watch the other screens, it not only calls back to the old games we loved but also creates a whole new experience that you haven’t played before. 

We’ve been all around the world to show it at conventions and it always gets a smile when we explain the concept. Everyone picks it up pretty quickly and soon it becomes second nature. 

After two years, Screencheat finally feels complete, the game we imagined it would turn out to be. Looking back at the initial prototype we made in 48 hours feels a bit strange now - it’s improved and changed so much since then - but you can still feel the essential DNA of the game in the initial version and it’s still fun to play.
