A game of murder, mystery and deception where town members try to survive the noose or the knife.

Update: We are funded but the work isn't done yet!

Play online at www.blankmediagames.com/TownOfSalem to lynch the Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Witches!

Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria.

Town of Salem takes place in the era of the Salem witch trials in an alternate universe version of Salem, MA. 

Mobile, Steam and Localization 

Town of Salem is currently operating as a free-to-play browser game. Since the launch of the Alpha version our fans have been clamoring for 3 things:  

  • When is the mobile version coming out?
  • When is the Steam version coming out?
  • When will there be support for non-English speaking players?  

That is what this Kickstarter is all about. We need help from the community to be able to tackle all of the difficulties and challenges that will come from doing the mobile and Steam ports, as well as the localization support.

How To Play

The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain. If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught. 

Roles

Town of Salem has 29 unique roles ensuring a different experience each time you play. 

Before a game starts, players are put into a lobby where the host can select what roles will be in the game. Players are then assigned roles at random from the list of chosen roles. Players have an in-game role card that explains their role's abilities and alignments. For an in-depth look at the abilities of each role please visit: www.blankmediagames.com/roles

Game Phases

Night

The night phase is when most roles use their abilities. For example, Serial Killers stealthily murder people, Doctors heal people who are attacked, and Sheriffs interrogate people for suspicious activity.

Day

The day phase allows the Town members to discuss who they suspect of being an evil role. Once the voting phase starts a majority vote from the town will put someone on trial. 

Defense 

The defense phase is when you plead your innocence to the town. Have a convincing story or find yourself facing the gallows! 

Judgement

During this phase the town will vote on the fate of the defendant. Players can vote guilty, innocent or abstain. If there are more guilty votes than innocent votes the defendant is sentenced to death by hanging!

Risks and challenges

Town of Salem is already a complete game. The difficulty comes from porting the game to each platform and testing it thoroughly as well as having the hardware to do so. We don't foresee any problems with porting but if we do face problems, we will have to re-code the client side to be compatible with the problem devices.
