Tutorial, Double Merit Point Weekends, and More!

Hey Townies!

There are a few things coming out today! We got a new Tutorial System, Double Merit Point Weekend tech, Theme prices being reduced, and improvements to the explanation of Steam linking. Check out the specifics below!

Tutorial System:

We are introducing a new Tutorial that we hope will help players get a grasp of the game faster than they normally would. This system displays helpful tips and hints as they play through their first game ever, and their first game as each specific role. This new system is much different than our old one that would hold your hand through a pre-determined set of events. The new system will help to guide players through the basic, but won't tell them what to do, or force them to play a certain way. We think this system will do a lot to help keep new players stick around that may have quit due to the game being confusing, and will help players who will stay anyways pick the game up even faster! This is the first run of this new system so there will be bugs, and improvements that can be made, but you can be sure we will make those improvements.

Double Merit Point Weekend Tech:
We have the tech in place to allow for double Merit Point weekends now! Starting at noon on Friday the 13th(spooky) and going until Sunday the 15th at 11:59:59 any Merit Points you would earn will give you 2x the amount. This bonus is not multiplicative with Steam, so Steam users will get 3x Merit Points, not 4x.

Theme Price reductions:

The Holiday, Voxel, and Apocalypse themes will all now cost 2600 Town Points instead of 5200.

Steam linking improvements:

Currently players sometimes have a hard time claiming their Steam rewards as how to claim them is a bit unclear. We have fixed this by creating a pop up that will show up when you log in with the Steam client, but haven't linked your account yet. This pop-up will explain how to go about linking your account to Steam and claiming your rewards.

Bug Fixes:

Amnesiacs can no longer remember cleaned roles

Fixed an instance where a few Neutrals Win conditions were causing the "Return to Homepage" button to not show up.

Improved how we handle situations where a player's username would overlap with their in game name if it was to long.

Upcoming Cauldron System!

Hey Townies,

This is the announcement of a new system for the game that will allow you all to earn more free stuff! Who doesn't like free stuff? This system is called the Cauldron System and works like this: Everyday you log on you can go to the Cauldron, there the Witch will be standing over a cauldron and will give you a daily brew and 50 Merit Points! This will happen for 6 days, and on the 7th day you will get a free random item. Every 7 days that you play you will now get an extra 300 Merit Points(doubled to 600 on Steam!), and a free item from the shop. This item can be anything in the game from a lobby icon or scroll, to a pet or skin. Town Point only purchases are included in this as well! If you miss a day don't worry! Every time you go to the Cauldron it will knock a day off your timer to getting another free item. This means if you missed a day it won't reset your progress.

About This Game

Purchase comes with the exclusive SteamBot3000 Character Skin with unique death animation, 2,000 Town Points ($8 Value) and you will earn double Merit Points forever!

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.

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.


Town of Salem has 33 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:

Game Phases


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.


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.


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


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!


Players are able to choose their own map (town setting), character, pet, lobby icon, death animation, house and a custom name. The other players in the game will see your selections. There are currently 10 maps, 29 characters, 20 pets, 5 death animations and 20 houses to choose from.


There are currently over 220 unique achievements in the game. Earning achievements will grant various in-game items (however the items for donation rewards are exclusive to Kickstarter).
