Hide & Shriek Mansion updates and gameplay features
We’ve been extremely busy on Hide & Shriek Mansion, implementing the latest features including exploding cats, burning beds, drainpipe climbing, ledge walking, dynamite and fireworks and more!
Our game aims to be the ultimate spy vs spy experience – you could say it’s more like Ninja vs Ninja! You can climb drainpipes, ivy, ladders, walk along ledges, sneak into the mansion through windows, chimneys or trapdoors, and explore the environment to set traps, complete objectives and eliminate other players!
The game is planned for PC initially, and if it’s a hit, Playstation, Xbox, Wii and touchscreen devices. Expected release date: October 2017!
