Smol Games Partners with MLC to Develop Hyde’s Haunt & Seek

April 24th, 2024

MLC proudly announces its partnership with Smol Games for the creation of “Hyde’s Haunt & Seek“. Published by Daedalic Entertainment, Hyde’s Haunt & Seek is a thrilling co-op experience that combines team-based spooking with first-person horror games. This collaboration marks MLC’s inaugural project where it will contribute to every aspect of the game’s development, from published to Early Access launch later this year (2024).

Spook or be spooked in this ghostly multiplayer horror game! Play as the mortal Seeker, hunting prized possessions of the dead, or as Ghosts, using pranks and scares to keep those pesky humans from your prize. It’s multiplayer mayhem as ghouls clash with go-getters in a haunted manor!

Smol Games has been crafting “Hyde’s Haunt and Seek” for the past four years, fine-tuning every detail to ensure an engaging gameplay experience. The game has garnered significant attention at events, both online and in person, and has a following of fans who can’t wait for release.

This marks the first project in the collaborative partnership between MLC and Smol Games.

“HHS (Hyde’s Haunt and Seek) is such an important project to MLC and after great success working with Valko Studios on Labyrinthine on their co-op horror title, we’ve been hungry for another multiplayer horror experience with an infectious goofy twist. One of my all time favourite games of recent years has been Dead By Daylight and to work on an asymetrical multiplayer horror is just perfect! The team at Smol Games are fantastic and we’re excited for fans and new players to get their hands on the game this year.”

Max Louis – Studio Director at MLC

Smol Games is the game development studio duo of Morgen Stern and David Turpin.

“MLC has been invaluable in bringing the vision of our game to reality. They’re providing not only a top-notch team of artists and developers, but also managing an efficient pipeline that would be difficult for us as a two-person studio. As a bonus, they’re all super passionate about HHS, and that energy has been infectious! We can’t wait to put out the best version of this game, and hope that our fans will feel the same.”
