Party Hard 2 for PC is a sequel to the stealth/tactical game that was released in 2015. It was developed by PinoklGames, creator of Party Hard, and published by tinyBuild Games.
The game takes place in Christmas time, ten years after the events of Party Hard. We play as a completely new psychopathic hero: a frustrated corporation employee who hopes he will get a Christmas bonus from his boss. Wen it turns out that he won’t, he plans to go postal with a bloody retaliation on his co-workers and employers. He decies to do it during the pre-holiday company event.
In terms of gameplay, Party Hard 2 for PC uses the same mechanics as the previous installment. Though the main goal of the game is to eliminate the event attendants, we cannot simply massacre them, because the game is over if one of our potential targets or police officers (who are just as lazy as they were in the first game) catches us red-handed. To achieve our goal we will have to have a more tactical approach and stealthy eliminate our targets. We can use many weapons, traps, and other gadgets to do so. The game is not just a 1:1 copy of Party Hard. The fact that it is now in 3D opens up new possibilities for our protagonist.
One of the biggest novelties introduced by Party Hard 2 for PC are the game’s brand new visuals. Although it still has its oldschool, pixilated style, the game uses a new 3D engine. As we play, we watch 2D characters moving around the 3D environment. Party Hard 2 has realistic physics and real-time generated shadows.
