Goldeneye players should be familiar with the concept of screencheating, which is what this new indie is all about.

Screencheat has been on our radars for a while but has now been confirmed for PS4, sparking a new wave of interest with a trailer and PS Blog post.

However, it was one of a number of games confirmed for Xbox One last month, and was also featured in a recent Xbox Newswire post.

The main conceit of Screencheat is that you can’t see other players: you need to look at their portion of the splitscreen display to figure out where they are. This even works in online play.

However, it also has a bunch of cool other features, like a single shot mode where every players must fire before you get another go, and another described as a murder mystery. There are ten maps and also ten guns, each apparently very different from each other, although all of them are one hit kills.

Take a look below. Screencheat is due on both PS4 and Xbox One later this year; the console version supports up to eight players, whereas the Linux, Mac and PC build, which you can grab now, only caters to four, apparently.
