There's aspects that I enjoy from this game very greatly. I cannot express the amount of fun I've had within my first hours of this game. While still in development, and at a fast rate the (shockingly little) amount of issues I've had will most likely be fixed soon. The gameplay is fluent, in combination with probably some of the best online social experiences I've had, wraps up to be one of the best investments in a while.
Deceit is a multiplayer game for six people where two of the six start off as infected. You have to get through different areas of the maps performing simple activities like shooting things in order, jumping and staying on pressure plates, or standing in an area in order to get new weapons, armor, cameras, or kits that can test other players for infection. When you are infected you can see the other infected player and can do things to try to make other players think you are helping them such as standing on pressure plates for others to get items or you can try to fool players by getting a kit to test for infection, using it on the other infected player and saying that they aren't infected. You can also turn off "puzzles" to try to prevent other players from getting equipment. Everyone starts with a pistol and can kill each other by shooting at other players but there comes a time when there is a blackout in each area and the infected players can turn into monster that can melee other players, cameras being able to help against them with the light, and their power can increase by drinking blood bags that can be found on the map. If you have enough friends to fill out a game you can have fun with it but otherwise it will likely be a game to avoid as the shooting and "puzzle" elements aren't good enough and the community will be full of people either not playing right or not talking.
Deceit is one of those games that might be fun while playing with friends. The main idea is to figure out who has been infected and who is safe to cooperate. Deception and conning is what makes the game enjoyable. I recommend to get it only if you intend to play with someone you know, because playing with random players will only lead to frustration, so it's up to you.
