Independent developer Games People Play today announced their brand new multiplayer deduction and survival game, Killer in the Cabin, is launching on Steam via Early Access on November 11th, 2021 with a full launch due early next year. A closed beta is planned for 24 hours on Sunday 31st, during Halloween weekend, to get all who sign up here in the killing mood!
In Killer in the Cabin, play as a member of a group of survivors from a bus crash in the desolate Norwegian mountains, where in order to survive you must work together in order to gather supplies, discover shelter and share food as you wait for help to arrive. Stick together and you’ll make it out alive, but danger looms: there’s a hidden killer in the group, working to sabotage all survival efforts and eliminate the party, one by one.
If allocated as the killer, use the sandbox environment to get creative as you terminate your fellow survivors. Blunt violence is seldom a good idea, rather stay stealthy to avoid attention and detection. Poison the food, sabotage the survival efforts, strangle someone in their sleep or use your surroundings to pull off a deceptive hit. When the party begins to suspect who the killer is, they can vote and kill the elected suspect, whether they are guilty of the crimes or not.
With 15-minute long game sessions and multiplayer play with up to 8 players, Killer in the Cabin puts players’ communication, deception, and truth-telling skills to the ultimate test.
