I can't stand the art style. The characters look like they're in an early 3D title, but ugly. Besides that it could be fun with a full eight players. It gives off a board game vibe where you would pick cards or something and some people are traitors and in cahoots with each other to betray the rest of the group to win, but instead of imagining the scenario it's all right there in front of you. Too bad what's in front of you is ugly, and in this case imagining it would be better lol.

It's basically a real-time survival version of I am not a Monster (which is turn-based tactics). That, plus the extra two players make it a very interesting game to me, and though the character design is indeed ass (same polygonal style as For The King's, but even worse somehow), the rest of the game looks pretty good to me when it's zoomed out, as it seems it would be for the majority of your playtime (once more, exactly as For The King).

I'll ask the devs for a key, and I'd be down to buy one for someone to stream this anyway, but it's a shame we can't just try it with a full team, and I don't see this ever happening unless I buy eight keys for people lol. Maybe if they put out a free weekend as I am not a Monster did, we might get our chance, and then if it's good enough and has staying power, people can buy it.
