Tongue-In-Cheek Murder Simulator Party Hard Comes to PS4 & Xbox One in Spring 2016

February 11, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

After selling nearly 100,000 copies on PC, “tongue-in-cheek party murder simulator” Party Hard from Pinokl Games and tinyBuild Games is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in spring 2016, along with the free After-Party DLC.

Described as an extremely silly game, despite its dark storyline, Party Hard sees you playing as a man who just wants some sleep during a loud party, finally snaps, grabs his knife and mask, and heads over to stop it. Discovering he’s quite good at stopping parties, he travels around the United States to 19 different ones, dancing with bears in sunglasses, poisoning the punch bowl, setting traps, and running from the cops.

“All you have to do is dispatch everybody at each party, but that’s easier said than done, as there are usually dozens of people swarming around,” tinyBuild’s Alex Nichiporchik said. “Fortunately, you don’t just have your knife — there are various traps around each level that can be used.”

Since each party is semi-procedural, Party Hard is slightly different every time you play, with people at the party getting mixed up, certain rooms and traps changing positions, and items spawning in new locations.

Nichiporchik continued:

There are different characters to unlock, too. You start off with the guy who just wants some sleep, but eventually you’ll unlock a cop who can frame other party goers, a ninja who can hide in the shadows, and a butcher… with a chainsaw. Only the best players will work out how to unlock all the characters.

And here’s the kicker: if you livestream the game using Twitch on your PS4, the people watching your stream will be able to enter commands into the live chat and mess around with your game. Maybe they’ll vote to send a SWAT team into the house to catch you, or unleash an army of angry bikers on the party.

tinyBuild will have “plenty of games just as crazy as this one” releasing on PlayStation this year.
