Vicious Circle is an uncooperative multiplayer shooter set in a colorful yet gritty sci fi universe inspired by retro comics. Gameplay is fast and frenetic with an emphasis on thwarting other players with dirty tricks at every turn. Be one of four mercenaries and compete for loot, or take the role of a terrifying monster and try to kill everything in your path. The first player to collect the biggest haul and reach the evac zone wins - unless the player controlling the big baddy gets them all first.
Core Gameplay Aspects:
Uncooperative Shooter/Playing Dirty
Work with other mercenaries to survive, but remember: only the player with the most loot wins. Should you combine forces against the terrifying monster, or sneak away to make bank while everyone else is busy? Mercenaries cannot directly harm each other, but they can use the environment and a selection of potent gadgets to outwit their opponents. Maybe lock a door at the right moment to trap another player in the same room as the monster, or use a gadget to suck the loot away from everyone around you. Just remember, what goes around comes around.
Be an Unstoppable Force
Each round, one player is selected to play as a massive creature with a simple goal: kill everyone. You won't stand a chance if the mercenaries band together, so it's up to you to divide and conquer. Use your enhanced senses to track down your foes and pick them off one by one, or barrel into combat and sow chaos. Either way, you have a selection of powerful abilities to ensure nobody makes it out alive!
