If you think back to last Halloween, you may remember the title Hide And Shriek getting a little release out there for PC on Steam. It was a little title that was a One Vs One multiplayer title all about fear that Funcom put out there while working on all of their other titles that have come out since. The may premise of Hide And Shriek is that you and your opponent are in a closed location and your goal is to get as many jump-scares pulled off on your opponent through traps, sneaking around, or any other tactics you can think of. All to get the most points and "frighten" them to death. Or at least that is the premise.
Hide And Shriek came and went and has had some updates since, but here we are a year later and the team wants us to play even more this Halloween. This want is so much that they have put the game out there for FREE now for any who opt to go and download it from Steam. Yes, it is a free horror game that you can spin up and play against all your buddies while waiting to go out Trick Or Treating or waiting to hand out candy. That is if you do not have party plans already, but at the low price of FREE, why would you not give it some time to hop in and try to scare the shit out of each other. Seems like just the kind of fun to be had this holiday.
If you want to see a bit more for Hide And Shriek before making the commitment of downloading a free game, here is the latest trailer out there promoting its new cost. It also looks like there have been a few updates added in that will be coming with the game. Either way, you will see me joining in all of the fun here soon so you should join in as well.
