Gameplay Summary

4 posts in this topic

Despite having multiplayer and the usual trend multiplayer horror games follow, this game is not balanced. At least not balanced in a way that you are used to. The reasoning for this is that we are making a horror game, attempting to balance a scenario where the human is obviously supposed to be the weaker individual loses the tension that is needed for such a horror game. A lot of horror games lose what makes them truly scary simply because they attempt to balance their players.

In our game:

  • Lethal SCPs are lethal. No matter who plays them you are most likely going to die.
  • Escape from the facility is very near to a false hope.
  • Survival depends on teamwork and strategy. Running through the facility trying to find items without caution is a very quick way to be torn apart.
  • Your current status matters. 
  • You have no health bar. Only wounds and severity of such wounds.
  • If you do not pay attention to your current status (breathing, walk speed, plain fatigue or wounds) you will die.
  • Those who play SCPs usually won't be afraid.
  • Those who play SCPs usually will be laughing their asses off while they kill you.

It is safe to assume that strength comes in numbers. Since the beginning of time, humans have survived simply by sticking together and planning together. Work with your teammates. Don't go alone. Always be paranoid. Don't attempt to not be afraid, embrace the fear, it's a natural survival instinct. Always trust your instincts and never trust those around you.

This, of course, is not saying that we won't have some balancing. Here are a few ideas that I have in mind (but is not yet confirmed by Jester or even by myself in some cases):

  • SCPs get chosen randomly. You do not get to choose to play as an SCP.
  • Items are limited but frequent, you will always have the ability to make an escape plan.
  • Cause shutdowns of certain door systems (although while you may lock something out, you also probably locked yourself in)
  • Ability to hide indefinitely (Pretty much, wait for the task force to come save you all)
  • In some cases, the task force may be more powerful than the SCP (after all, they are the ones who helped contained these bastards.

If you have an idea go ahead and post it here. If you have a problem go ahead and post it here. If you don't want to go ahead and post it here go ahead and post it here.

Thank you for reading.
