Earlier this year I happened to stumble upon Party Hard, a tactical strategy game about stopping your neighbors loud party by taking matters into your own hands. Pinokl Games, previously known for creating family friendly casual games, decided to create Party Hard as their entry for the most recent Global Game Jam, it’s this sadistically fun version of the game that you’re able to play online.
However it wasn’t until E3 this year when Pinokl Games announced that they teamed up with tinyBuild Games to develop a full feature version of Party Hard which was going to take everything we loved about the prototype and expanded it into the complete game that they wanted to deliver. It’s with that news that I’m very happy to announce that the full version of party Hard is available now on Steam.
In Party Hard, you play as someone who is really tired of the neighbors having loud parties. Instead of calling the police, you decide it’s a better idea to kill everyone – using your faithful knife and the environment. The tactical strategy follows a series of killings at parties throughout the USA, including Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, and more.
Party Hard has semi-procedural environments and focus on unique ways of killing people. In the greatest traditions of sneaking games, your main goal is not to get caught, while silently picking off unsuspecting victims one by one. Dancing and blending in during a suspicious situation is key.
- A (not)serious story that follows a series of murders through the USA
- A dozen unique levels with random variations on each one
- Use traps, cause explosions, become a ninja
- Multiple unlock-able characters
- Special random events, like a bear coming in and killing everyone for you
- Trigger the DEA, SWAT cars, paramedics, firefighters to come in and ruin the party
Party Hard comes with a bunch of pretty sweet additional features, including a banging soundtrack, a dance button, and Twitch integration that allows your livestream viewers to mess around with your game while you play.
Party Hard launched on Steam today for $12.89.
Oh, and if you’re wondering why the game is $12.89, that’s the number of people who have been stabbed to death by serial killers since records began, according to research by Radford University. It’s also an apocalyptic number, and an evil number.
