Hoax - Announced
The best liar wins in Hoax, a fast-paced party game of secret identities designed by, Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge, Ned Horn, and Peter Olotka. When an unscrupulous business magnate meets an undignified end, a fierce competition for his estate begins. The inheritance is legally promised to whoever can prove that he is just as clever, deceitful, and ruthless as the deceased magnate. Therefore the greedy members of the magnate’s inner circle engage in a heated struggle to lie, cheat, accuse, outwit, and manipulate their way to wealth.
The designer of Coup posted on BGG that Hoax was unknown to them until after designing Coup.

And, Coup is a complete and obvious rip-off of Hoax. It's incredibly obnoxious that the designers didn't give any mention or credit to Olotka and crew.
I'd like to give Hoax a try to see how they compare. Coup didn't grab me as much as some other games in the bluffing genre.
