Knockback Games

Project: Sincognito




Sincognito is both a solo and online stylized horror game that blends social-deduction and stealth as humans attempt to defeat the 7 Deadly Sins. Stood alongside a group of Humans, any of you could be selected as the Sin once the game begins.

Sins are able to transform back and forth between their disguised Human and monstrous Sin form.

There are 7 potential deadly Sins a player can be chosen as. These Sins include: Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath and Sloth. Each of these Sins possesses unique abilities with dynamic playstyles.

Human players, the majority being preyed upon, must use communication with proximity voice/text-chat, items and teamwork to deduce not only which player is secretly a Sin, but also which Sin they are!

I believe participating in DunDev will further grow and cement Knockback Games as a company, while also giving us the support and facilities to work on our first title Sincognito. As a whole this opportunity gets us that one step closer to becoming an indie success story.

The support provided by DunDev will be greatly useful to develop our game further. Building a financially sustainable indie games studio is not an easy thing, and for most, it always remains a dream. But the opportunity that DunDev provides here will make that dream come true.
