A downloadable game for Windows

Pyramad is a king of the kill style local multiplayer party game, in which minion-players work together to overcome an empowered boss-player. 

Minion-players must work together to progress up the pyramid; whilst avoiding the boss-player.

  • A match consists of 6-10 short, 30 second rounds.
  • Each round the obstacles are randomised.
  • Each round a different player is empowered, playing as a boss against all other players.
  • The minion-players each recieve a point for every minion at the top of the pyramid when the round timer expires.
  • The boss recieves a point for each player not at the top when the round timer expires.
  • At the end of the match the player with the most points is victorious.
  • There are three cosmetic maps to play on, one is randomly selected for each match.
