Don’t Play This Game Delayed To August 3rd, 2018

Don’t Play This Game is as cryptic as it is intriguing. All that’s known about the game is that you play an individual trying to escape a systematic algorithm that is trying to consume you through mass  confusion. However, it looks like the game has been delayed from July 27th, 2018, now to August 3rd, 2018.

Don’t Play This Game by Unknown is a strange and mysterious first-person shooter that resembles SUPERHOT, and leans on the trippy side. The game in question mixes modern day FPS mechanics like aiming down sights and sprinting, along with puzzle solving in a nebulous computer-like space.

Well, if that sounds like fun, Don’t Play This Game was supposed to release today (July 27th, 2018) but has been delayed. You can look over the game’s official Steam page showing the new release date right here:

We know that the game was originally set to launch on the former date thanks to the “Zero Day” trailer closing segment.

Folks curious about what this game is about or how it plays will finally be able to put those thoughts to rest thanks to a live demo.
