At some point you are told "Piggy Has Woken Up". You then need to survive 10 minutes. While you do this you can access safe's and areas by collecting items and colour-coded keys. The round is over when either the time runs out or all the players are caught by the Piggy character.
There are different game modes you can select. Player mode where a random person is chosen to be Piggy and others must survive. Bot mode where Piggy is controlled via AI. Infection mode, where when Piggy catches someone they also become the Piggy character and start infecting other players. themselves, and have to infect the remaining survivors.

Hearing strange noises in the house and getting hit in the head. Going to sleep in a tent to be woken up by a monster attack. Characters being abandoned in hospitals with researchers. Running from doctors for fear of infection.
