The Flock – First-person Asymmetrical Multiplayer Thriller – Gets Playable Alpha Build

Vogelsap has announced that The Flock has entered its alpha phase testing. The Flock is a first person asymmetrical multiplayer thriller game for 3 to 5 players, in which all players start out as monsters, called the Flock. When the coveted Light Artifact is grabbed by one of the players that player transforms into the Carrier, and the hunt begins.

The Carrier is slower, smaller and more vulnerable. It has to protect itself from the Flock that try to gain the Artifact for themselves, using the intense light that is emitted from the Artifact. The Flock are vulnerable to the light, and will burn to death if they don ’t stand still when shined upon. If a Flock stands still, it will turn into stone and be safe from the light.

If one of the Flock succeeds in attacking the Carrier, that player will turn into the new Carrier, and the attacked player returns as one of the Flock. The player that can stay being the Carrier long enough wins the game. The gameplay in combination with the dark and ghastly atmosphere makes for a thrilling psychological experience.

As the team noted, the game’s alpha will be playable only during the weekend, for at least two more weekends.

Those interested can  go here to register for the game’s alpha and join the Flock.
