Hidden Agenda is a narrative-based game with branching paths similar to Until Dawn, but it has a twist: local multiplayer. As part of Sony’s PlayLink line, the game sees you using smartphones to control the story with up to six players, with tactical voting and disagreements all playing a part in which direction the plot goes.
In addition to the standard story mode, there’s also a competitive option where players are given “hidden agendas” and need to be ratted out by the rest of the party. We’ve played this and it’s a lot of fun, although we do wonder how much longevity it’ll have. Still, you can read our impressions through here.
Still not sold on this PlayLink stuff but at $20, this game is still a buy for me. Until Dawn was surprisingly good.
@Gamer83 Make sure you play with friends and family.
Will try to. Most people I know either aren't into these kind of games though, or don't care about video games at all. So, I know I'll likely be missing out on some key aspects of the game. But, $20 is reasonable and the story seems interesting enough even for only one player so I'll give it a go regardless.
@Gamer83 Wait, I thought it was impossible to play this game by yourself? Or am I confused.
@Gamer83 @ToddlerNaruto I think you can but clearly you'll miss out on a lot if you do. It's been designed with non-gamers in mind, so I'm sure you'll be able to rope some family in.
Any chance it goes free to play?
@get2sammyb None of my family cares for gaming sadly. I am literally the only gamer in the family, and that's counting relatives!
@smythelove Unlikely, this game is releasing at $20 and will probably never drop lower than like $5-$10 during a random flash sale.
@ToddlerNaruto darn wife liked the that’s you Game
@ToddlerNaruto Well, the whole point of the game is that it's been made for people who don't usually play games, so maybe they'll enjoy this.
@get2sammyb My mom refuses to play video games period. Even if it's a casual party game she'll turn it down.
Trust me I know my family pretty well enough to know they would never play this with me.
so how many smart phones do you need to play this? is one enough?
