At long last, SpyParty has arrived! Well, sort of. The highly anticipated game of subtlety and misdirection isn't quite finished just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't get in on the action right now. Chris Hecker has launched an open beta for the title, giving folks an opportunity to assist with the final stages of development.

Players will need to pony up at least $15 to gain access to the beta. Hecker says the fee will also act as a pre-order of sorts, entitling the tester to a finished version of the game if and when it ever comes out. 

SpyParty is a competitive multiplayer experience about behavior and observation. Based around the Turing test, the experience centers on two people at cross purposes: a sniper and a spy. Taking place in a party full of dozens of AI guests, one person tries to blend in while the other seeks to identify and kill them.

Look at these SpyParty characters talk!

Remember the five new SpyParty characters? Of course you do! I even came up with elaborate backstories for each of them based solely on their appearance. Surely everyone remembers that? Chris Hecker, developer of SpyPar...more

SpyParty adds five more characters to its roster

I've always had a strange relationship with the characters from SpyParty. With the old "basic" character models, there really isn't much detail or emotion put into any one character. Yet, I always find myself saying things li...more

Ain't no party like a SpyParty

In 2010, Anthony Burch explained why SpyParty, though "two years away from release," was pretty rad. Four years later and a lot of that prototype art is still in SpyParty's first trailer, though it also shows one of the fina...more

Something's off about this SpyParty video

What is going on in this SpyParty video? I've never seen a murder, but is this what happens? Because it seems that the reactions of the witnesses would be more scarring than the murder itself. Or maybe this is just what it's like when a developer's willing to poke fun at its game's bugs.more

SpyParty's new environments are warm, cool, & Scooby Doo

Though it's quite endearing the current visual style of SpyParty sorta looks like crud. We already know that the game is getting an artistic revamp, but so far we've only seen the new character art. Well, of course the e...more

Meaty turn-based RPG Pier Solar HD hits Wii U in November

WaterMelon's homebrew project Pier Solar and the Great Architects pushed the Sega Genesis to its limits as a new release in 2010 (!) which I thought was courageous, at the time. Still do. The game shipped on an actual cartrid...more

Return of the Obra Dinn has a playable demo

Did I ever tell you that as a child I was fascinated with the idea of ghost ships? Well, I was -- and I guess you could say that I still am in one way or another. I grew up reading about the accounts of mysterious vessels lik...more

First else Heart.Break() trailer reminds me it exists

Everyone remembers else Heart.Break(), right? Of course you do, because it was on my "Top 30 indies to look out for in 2013" list! There was very little information on the game at that point, and apparently I thought it woul...more
