How to play

There are some very simple instructions on gameplay here: http://www.plainsightgame.com/about

In a nutshell though; attack and destroy other players to gain points. Points make you bigger, better and brighter, but you can only keep the points once you blow yourself up! Re-spawn and repeat.

Please note: this beta is not the final game and is limited in features. The final game will include more levels, power ups and different gameplay modes.

About Plain Sight

Plain Sight is a 3D multiplayer arcade game with robots; robots who bouncearound cityscapes on mini planetoids and wield swords which are used to destroy one another.

Destroying another robot makes you bigger, stronger, better… a different colour.

It also gives you points.

Spoiler: You can’t keep the points until you kill yourself.

    <*>Robots! <*>Swords!! <*>Explosions!!! <*>Oh my!

Plain Sight will be released in Q1 2009 for PC, and available directly from the website or via a number of other digital distribution platforms, including Steam.

About Beatnik Games

Plain Sight is developed by an independent game studio based in central London, called Beatnik games - a small team of six people working in a shoe box sized room with no air-conditioning.

“We’re lucky” says studio head Robin Lacey“our investors get no influence on our output, and we aren’t tied into any hellacious publishing contracts, which leaves us able to do what we love best - creating innovative and fun games for our fellow gamers to play… and drinking coffee.”
