You wake up in unknown surroundings to the sound of the Game Master's unfamiliar voice, surrounded by five others. A third of your group have been infected with a virus, but who will escape?

    Deceit combines the frenzy of fast paced combat mixed with strategic gameplay, and of course the psychological mind games of determining who you can trust.

    The concept is great and the execution is far from bad, but there is room for improvement. The maps are rich and make each game feel incredibly singular and flustered in a different way. But, the weapons feel weak and movements feel awkward. There’s much potential and excitement to be had in Deceit, and even more screams and scares.

    Deceit’s concept is fantastic and the psychological aspect of gameplay is great, but ugly visuals and Early Access level of polish make the game harder to enjoy than it should be. [09/2017, p.72]

    Deceit is a game of deception and co-operation. A concept excellent on paper. In practice though, it does fall flat on itself. It has a problematic community which can be tough on new players. If Deceit allowed friends to play together it could make for a great party game. Unfortunately, this is not the vision of the developers. They'd rather see strangers forced to work together in dire situations.

    This is a pretty good game. The people who play it however...

    I've had my own infected team mates attack me at the start of the game for no reason.
    Whole teams have shot me because "meh we haven't seen him for a bit" when innocent.
    Maybe 25% of players have a mic, 5% type in chat and the rest never communicate whatsoever.

    It's really enjoyable when you get a game where people have half a brain and play with any sense of logic.

    The other times?
    You are going to finish the game questioning how your team had enough brain cells to work a computer, let alone install this.

    "Alright, let's just be honest right from the start."
    "Okay."
    "Sounds good."
    "What... you're missing the whole point!"
    "Just do it, alright?"

    "Alright, I'm innocent!"
    "I'm clean too..."
    "Clean!"
    "Innocent..."

    "Now, somebody here's a f***in liar."

    Grab a bloodbag, then yell loudly that the guy who just walked in did it. Murder your friend as an infected, then revert to human form and act like you came running to revive him. Scan somebody, find out he's infected, and start screaming loudly as the infected player calls you a liar and your "friends" take sides.

    Just sit back and watch your friendly Discord party turn from casual game night to a disorganized mess of accusations and awkward silences in mere minutes. Worth the free download, not worth having friends.

    The game Deceit Is a fun multiplayer game that's free to play. I highly recommend it. I have some problems though, The tutorial video the gameThe game Deceit Is a fun multiplayer game that's free to play. I highly recommend it. I have some problems though, The tutorial video the game links to in the menu is just the trailer. You have to go to the wiki page for it in order to pick up the controls, a smaller issue is one about the small details of the graphics. None of the character avatars in the game are wearing shoes. Whether this was purposeful or not, it bugs me. Other than that, Deceit is a game that keeps you on the tip of your toes which is why i give it a 7.6/10. Rounding up of course. This game has a unique lootbox system. It's a shell game where the item you want, is the item you keep track of. Expand

    Toxic community, developers don't care for the game, takes way too long to matchmake, terrible grinding system. The main offender here is theToxic community, developers don't care for the game, takes way too long to matchmake, terrible grinding system. The main offender here is the community, mostly friend groups, they will kill you instantly when you spawn in a match which means you can't play. Bad game. Expand
