Originally a university project, The Flock is an asymmetrical multiplayer thriller played by up-to 5 players. You will play as the creature called Flock and fight to grab an item called the Light Artifact which gives you the power to destroy other Flocks. The game is planned to release on PC this year. You can apply for closed alpha test at the official site now.
Each multiplayer match begins with up to five players as members of the Flock, and the first person to pick up the Light Artifact transforms into a humanoid creature, the Carrier. At this point, The Flock turns into a terrifying game of red light, green light: The Carrier can shine light on other players to hurt them, and the only way the Flock can survive the harsh beam is by standing still in the light. The next creature to touch the Carrier becomes the new Carrier, and the game proceeds until the final Carrier is standing.
According to the Dutch studio Vogelsap, each match is short but intense and thrilling. As players are fighting for the control of the Light Artifact, their role constantly change between hunt and be hunted.
