MINDNIGHT is a Resistance-esque online multiplayer game of deception and deduction for 5 to 8 players, in which players attempt to figure out which of them are Hackers and Agents while fighting over control of nodes.
In MINDNIGHT players are randomly assigned teams at the start of each match, with some becoming Agents and some becoming Hackers. The Hackers know who else is in their team, but the Agents don’t know who to trust. The aim of the Agents is to secure three out of five nodes, while the aim of the Hackers is to hack them.
At the start of each round one player chooses 2 to 3 of the players that will attempt to secure a node. If all those chosen are agents then they’ll secure the node and carry on, but if a Hacker is in their midst then they can try and hack the node and secure it for their team. The Agents must attempt to figure out who the Hackers are so they don’t invite them on missions to secure the nodes, while the Hackers try and sabotage them while remaining undetected.
It’s can take a couple of goes to get into the swing of things, but it’s a fun game with plenty of backstabbing and heated discussion over who is and who isn’t a hacker. An addictive social game that’s packed full of deceit and subterfuge!
