Play OverviewPlay Overview

Just Act Natural (2022) is an online stealth game where you hide among computer characters in a hand-made world, to avoid detection. Play varies with each mode, but throughout you're trying to blend in with the AI characters so other players don't target you. It creates a knife-edge challenge where observation and careful movement is as important as quick reactions.

You compete against friends in a range of hide-and-seek challenges. Life is made hard for the seeker because players look just like their computer counterparts. But to win as the hider, you must also complete quests to collect items that risk giving your human-controlled identity away.

As you start each round you get to choose from items that may (or may not) help either the seekers or the hiders. Keep track of who has used which item and use this to your advantage to win the round.

The result is a social deduction challenge that draws on games like Spy Party and Unpottable. The simple premise of identifying who to shoot by the way they move around is really clever and makes it a game that players of all ages and skill levels can do well at.
