'Killer In The Cabin' Free To Play On Steam This Weekend

Killer In The Cabin is a multiplayer deduction and survival game. Keep your wits about you and trust no-one, someone's trying to kill you!

In Killer In The Cabin, play as a member of a group of survivors from a bus crash in the desolate Norwegian mountains, where in order to survive you must work together in order to gather supplies, discover shelter and share food as you wait for help to arrive. Stick together and you’ll make it out alive, but danger looms: there’s a hidden killer in the group, working to sabotage all survival efforts and eliminate the party, one by one. 

The game is a social survival game. The goal is to make sure as many players as possible survive until help comes. Each game session is maximum 15 minutes long and with up to 8 players. To succeed you need to search the area for loot and share resources with the other players to be able to create meals for the party, keep the cabin warm, and ensure a sufficient supply of water. Communication is vital to make sure you cooperate efficiently on the different tasks, as well as a means for exposing the killer.

Developer Games People Play announce that Killer in the Cabin, will be free this weekend (19th - 20th February) on Steam for all players.

Currently in Steam Early Access for $14.99, each match has one killer who must eliminate every other player while avoiding detection. After multiple updates, Killer in the Cabin is ripe and ready for a new wave of players to survive in the harsh conditions of the vivid Norwegian wilderness and the looming threat of a murderous impostor.

You can start a vote for who the killer is at any time, and if more than half of the players agree, the respective player dies. But you won’t know if you have voted off the actual killer before the end of the game session.

Sharing information with the other players is critical to stay safe and to expose the killer.

Unless you are a killer of course. As a killer you have a range of different options for how to terminate the other players, but you have to be stealthy. Blunt violence is seldom a good idea, at least not before you have thinned the horde. Poison the food, or one of the ingredients, strangle a sleeping player, sabotage the survival efforts, and any other devious thing you can come up with. But your voice is the most powerful weapon, nothing is more suspicious than a quiet killer. And if you play your cards right, you can get the innocent players killing off each other.

With 15 minute long game sessions and multiplayer play with up to 8 players, Killer In The Cabin puts players’ communication, deception and truth-telling skills to the ultimate test. Crafty killer or innocent survivor? The voice is the most powerful tool in Killer in the Cabin, as nothing is ever more suspicious as a quiet murderer. Playing Killer in the Cabin requires a microphone, as it is critical to the core social interaction gameplay experience.

Killer In The Cabin is coming to PC (Steam) in 2022.
