What is The Flock about?
The Flock is a first-person asymmetrical multiplayer thriller for 3 - 5 players. You get to play as one of the agile monsters that make up the Flock. Competing against the other monsters, you need to find and claim the Light Artifact. The player that finds the Artifact transforms into the Carrier, a slower and vulnerable humanoid. Only the Carrier can win the match. The game will feature three distinctive maps with their own tactics and level mechanics.
As the Carrier you need to fend off the Flock by shining your light upon them as they are attempting to gain the Artifact for themselves! The Flock are vulnerable to the Artifacts light, but turn to stone when they stand still; rendering them immune to the power of the Artifact.
When you are one of the Flock you must use your increased movability to find the wandering Carrier. Stalk it, frighten it, and pounce when the moment is right.
Personally, I think the idea of the game is brilliant. The whole community gets a total number of lives. One life is deducted for each death. If the counter is set to 0, the game disappears from the shop and the final phase of the game begins. I'm afraid it won't come to that, because the company (I think) went bankrupt and the counteris therefore switched off (that's a fact) The servers are almost empty, so there's a steam group for active ''The Flock'' players. Pro:+Genius idea+Various idea+Good graphicsContra:-it will never get to the final-kaum player-it costs without discount 16, 99 (Since there are hardly active players the game is much too expensive. ) Conclusion:If you find friends you want to play this game with, it's just perfect. In case you want to play this game without friends, but with strangers, it is rather not so suitable, because it will be difficult to find 3 to 5 players who want to play the game at this exact time.
