OBEY now has an official Steam Page
OBEY is GREENLIT!!!
Description
Release date: Fall 2015. Early Access is now Available!
OBEY is an asymmetrical multiplayer game.

We've all played games where you send commands to teammates or AI units to boss around.
OBEY instead puts you in the position to command your enemies (human opponents), and to be commanded by them. Players are always free to obey/disobey. It is always up to you to deal with the consequences of your own decisions in the game.

You win by bribing and coercing your opponents to do things against their own self interest (and in your interest).
If you are being coerced you have only stealth, intelligence, trickery, and creativity to escape.

GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE BY GDOG (Contains instructions for new players)
GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE BY FRAGMIX with inset by GEIN

It is sort of like Counter Strike Jailbreak Mod meets Spy Party.

To win, make more money than any one else by the end of the round.
To make the most money, take command of the giant robot (the robot player makes 10x more than the other players per second)
You take control of it by walking into a door at the base of the robot.
The player in the robot can easily destroy any player he sees trying to approach (IF he sees them).
That’s the basics – so superficially, it plays like ‘king of the hill’.

Here is the twist:
Experienced robot players will know that it is not always in their interest to simply kill the approaching players.
Why not? Because he can instead coerce them to do what he wants.
and that’s where the game gets interesting…

If you like what you see, tell your friends!
As only one developer, I need YOUR help to get the word out!

  • "[the] mechanics help foster multiplayer dynamics that are amazing to watch unfold. In one game players might end up in a Totalitarian-style play style. In another, a bunny uprising, or flat-out anarchy may occur. Really, it’s up to each player and their acceptance/rejection of “obeying” that makes each match unique. Although there may be other games out there that foster such gameplay, I have definitely never played one before." - Marcus Estrada, Cliqist.com

  • "...this is a tense, fast-paced King of the Hill-type encounter where the balance of power is constantly shifting and is not always in the hands of the only person with actual weaponry. Playing into the overlord’s hand can be more lucrative than attempting to constantly subvert, creating a bizarre and uncomfortably totalitarian-feeling experience, whereas once the dropship is eliminated complete anarchy can erupt with players casting off their tracking collars and bum-rushing the robot for control.." - Julian Aidan, http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2014/10/23/fund-obey-for-an-incredible-innovative-multiplayer-experience/113572

  • "I am really glad we here at GAU caught you early on this because we loved the game", "OBEY was my favorite game at Boston Festival of Indie Games" - Drew Frayre, http://www.gaustudios.com/boston-festival-of-indy-games-editors-choice-award-obey
