Mutiny! Is a Multiplayer Party Game with a Mobile Twist

Mutiny!, an upcoming party game by Hidden Armada, is not a mobile game. But if this Kickstarter project has its way, mobile could play a huge part, and in a very cool way. Mutiny! is a desktop game where 16 total players on a pirate ship try to fight off enemies and collect gold. Players won’t just be fighting computer-controlled enemy pirates, but building teams of other real players in a local environment.

16 players is a challenge to properly implement into a game, and that’s where iOS and Android devices come in. The game will support up to 8 controllers, but another 8 players can use their phones over wi-fi to join in. This serves as an extremely convenient way to play a local multiplayer game, as controllers are often an issue. But it also comes with in-game benefits, as the screen can be used to see additional information, or enter first-person view for tasks like aiming cannons, for example. Plus, the app will feature minigames and character creation that can be taken from game to game, saved to the device.
