Restricted-RPS is an online multiplayer swindle’emup in which a mass of players gamble Star betting chips on Rock Paper Scissors matches with a finite amount of each move. With each match narrowing down your RPS options, the information of what moves you have left become leverage to opponents and that leverage becomes commodity. Orbiting those gambles is a framework of information dispersal and resource trading, leading what initially seems to be simple luck based gambles into a tense balancing act of risk management revolving around information acquisition, player targeting, tenuous alliances and skin-of-your-teeth mindgames.
R-RPS aims to transplant the thrilling “meta” gameplay that experienced players of competitive shooters/fighters/etc enjoy to a non-action game. That “meta” gameplay is at the heart and forefront of every aspect of Restricted-RPS, making it so smart people can dominate without the need for incredible reaction times. As an added bonus to not having speed reliant gameplay, R-RPS is a high-ping accessible game, allowing for many players from all over the world to play together without technical issues negatively impacting gameplay.
