Pack in Game of the Month: Town of Salem
Town of Salem a turn based Flash game by Blank Media Games is a game that you can play for free in an internet browser or on your mobile device, all you need to do is sign up for an account. The devs do have a Steam version, but it will run you $4.99 if you are interested in it. The game Town of Salem is a multiplayer game inspired by the Salem Witch Trials. As the name implies, there are plenty of references to those trials, as well as the game Mafia.
You can play one of three teams under a fake name. You play as either Town, Anti-Town (since the addition of serial killers, werewolves, and vampires along with the Mafia), or Neutral. The Town tries to execute all of the anti-Town players through the various roles that are assigned at the start of the game to sniff out those anti-Townies.
Mafia are the main target of the Townies, and the Mafia’s goal is to kill all of the Townies. Some anti-Townies can work with the Mafia, such as Witches, and win together. Some, however, cannot. Werewolves and arsonists have to fend for themselves and go against the Mafia, but they do not help the Town.
Neutral players can really play whatever side they wish, or just live til the end of the game without picking a side.
The game is all about manipulation, lying, and detective skills depending on what side you’re on. This makes it especially fun if you get a group of people who will easily believe you. Go check it out for free!
