Play OverviewPlay Overview

Am I The Baddie? (2021) is a running and collecting game of hide and seek where you control a character on a simple maze of streets. Up to five people compete on separate devices or computers. One person is the baddie who tries to collect the clues without being touched by the others. The other players can't see the baddie apart from then they collect a clue, and must track them down to catch them.

Play is like Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land, with a little bit of Pac-Man and Among us thrown in. In each game a randomly-selected player is the baddie. If you are the baddie you need to develop strategies to get the clues and then move away before you are caught. If you are the catchers you need to communicate to work together and catch the baddie with pincer tactics.

There are four themes: grassy, night-time, desert, and snow. There are three maps. And a virtually infinite number of layouts. We especially love the night-time, with glowing windows and working chimneys in the cozy town.

The result is a family-friendly game for all ages and everybody from kids to grown-ups.
