Deceit II is a multiplayer horror video game developed and published by World Makers.


The ritual has begun.

Milhaven Asylum, 1979. An occult ritual goes horribly wrong, killing all but one member of a once prominent family. The case was left cold for decades until the fearless Truth Seekers Anonymous stepped in. Now, you’re imprisoned, forced to participate in the Ritual of Deceit at the hands of the malevolent Game Master.

Deceit II is a six to nine player social deduction horror game where two among you have been Infected. Whilst the Infected do the Game Master’s bidding, the Innocent must work together to escape the Ritual whilst deducing who is plotting against them. So who can you trust?

Deceive and Manipulate

Infected players can activate Blood Altars located across the map, weakening the veil of reality until it breaks. This transports all players to The In-Between, a parallel dimension in which the Infected have terrifying powers. Infected players will wreak havoc and sabotage the efforts of innocent players, but can be eliminated if exposed outside of the In-Between.

Hunt and Kill

Once the Infected players summon the In-Between, you’ll need to continue making progress towards escaping whilst evading the empowered Infected. Your mind will be warped as they chase you down amongst the horrors of the In-Between, and one player must die for the ritual to be satisfied. Who will be sacrificed?

Deduce and Escape

Innocent players have power in numbers. They can eliminate any suspected Infected player by damaging them to trigger a banishing ritual. Make sure you’re convinced of their guilt though, or you’ll be thinning out your own team. Complete tasks and collect souls for the mysterious Peddler, who’ll exchange useful items to aid in investigations, survive the dreadful In-Between, and eventually escape.

Immersive Freedom

Deceit II is designed as a social sandbox with unique and creative ways to play both roles. Social deception is at the core of this game—you’ll have to study other players’ behavior and evaluate the situation before making any hasty decisions. There are plenty of tools to assist but with item and map variations between games, you’ll need to adapt strategies on the fly.
