PAX 12 - SpyParty Interview
SpyParty is an indie game that elevates the idea of player vs player.
I tried both the Spy and the Sniper mode. The spy must complete objectives in a party without letting the sniper realize that he isn't a computer-controlled character, and the sniper has to figure out which party-goer is the player. It's waaaaay harder than it sounds, on both ends.
My first time, I completed all of my objectives as a spy. When I tried the sniper, the player-spy escaped just as I lined up my shot. It was invigorating.

I watched folks playing this game for a good 20+ minutes while in line, and I don't think either of them successfully picked off the spy. Each miss was equally hilarious though!
I'm all for this interesting independent game! The whole 1 vs. 1 between a spy and a sniper sounds awesome!
This sounds really fun. It's kind of like in tf2 when you have to be on the lookout for spies. After a while in that game you can kind of tell when one of your allies is acting oddly and realize they are a spy just from that.
