The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a game where you can either take the role of Victim or Family. Victims are the survivors in this game. They have to stay alive and escape this nightmare. During the gameplay, Victims start at the basement of the house. They were tortured to death. Because character is wounded, your actions are slow.
There are many help items you can get as Victims. Lockpick, medkit, valve handle and so on. You can use these items to unlock your way or defense yourself. Because your character is already wounded, medkits won’t help much but it will keep you alive for a while. At least for searching a way out of house.
Once you got out of basement, you have to escape from family’s house and yard. Puzzles in this places are changed between maps but usually you have to either open gate or power the gate. For doing this, you have to search the house and basement carefully but also hide from family since they are searching everywhere for you.
Once you escaped house, yard, you will be free. Not all Victims escape at once, sometimes if you don’t follow your teammates or your teammates stay behind you, either you stay behind and lose your way or your teammate does. To prevent this, you can search for your teammate or when you find your teammate, you can stick to them but keep that in mind that when you run into family member, things can get ugly.
Victims can help their teammate by opening secret passages or shortcuts. Since all these changes will kept same for all players, other Victim players can easily use these ways and escape easily thanks to their teammates.
Once one victim escaped house, the player can spectate other players and maybe lead them if they have voice communication.
In The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Family is the killer of the game. Their role is kill Victims and prevent them from escaping the house. For doing this, they have countless way. Noises are the best helper for Family members. Voices show visual indicator to family members, they make easier to find Victims.
Family members can also unlock or lock doors. Victims will have hard time opening these doors. If one Family member is currently chasing one Victim and the only way out door was locked by Family member, this Victim will be cornered and eventually end up dead.
