Spyparty - the party everyone wishes they could be at before it starts
Where's my Beta Invite?
SpyParty is a game about subtle behavior from Spore animator and former Game Developer Magazine editor - Chris Hecker. In this game, the premise is simple, you are either a Sniper trying to find the spy or you are the spy trying to blend in with a party scene being played out in a courtyard. This game, played online, has been one of the most exclusive and elusive beta parties in the past few years.
This game has been in beta since 2009 when Chris Hecker found himself without a job and the ability to work on the game full time. Since that time, the word-of-mouth advertising has snowballed and is now hurling itself down the mountain consuming nearly everything in its path.
Recent beta-party accessier Kalanosh00 has recently begun putting together a series of tutorials for new players. Since the programmers have a whole lot of procedural animation awards under their belt, the need for tutorials and possibility spaces is paramount to both sides of this fierce battle. You can view Kalanosh00's videos on his Youtube channel.
