Future Game — Uncanny Resemblance

Game Summary

Keys

Keys embedded inside your arm have trackers on them, humanoids released into the maze can detect your location. For them to collect the keys, they must tear apart your body and rip it out.

Humanoids

Difference between Players and Humanoids

  • they cannot speak to you, but you may hear them make deep breathing sounds
  • immortal
  • night vision
  • cannot enter tunnels

Humanoids may only rip out one key at a time, it takes them 10 seconds to retrieve a key. While a humanoid is fixed on a player, you may sneak past them and escape.

Players

Players have access to a voice chat and all players can communicate with one another throughout the whole map. Beware, the voice chat is disabled for 30-seconds every time a humanoid collects a key.

When players die, they will reappear in the maze as invisible ghosts and may maneuver objects around the maze to slow down humanoids or to scare fellow players.

Tunnels

Items

  • green card: you will have a floating green indicator above your character, and other players can easily detect that you are not a humanoid.
  • GPS blocker: you will not appear on all humanoid radars for 20-seconds.
