Patch 1.5.2

Hey Townies!

We got some more pets and skins coming your way. This patch is a light patch of cosmetics, but a lot more game changes, and improvements are coming soon!


There are two more skins coming out with this patch, that we are sure you will love!

1 has been teased for quite some time, but it is finally here.

Forgetful Freddie the Amnesiac!


When the Mafioso went a little to trigger happy, and there was a bit more "evidence" left than the Mafia would like, who do they call?

Yaun Itor the Janitor!



Who doesn't love cuddly little panda bears? Other than you know, all the people that know those things could maul your face off, but lets forget about that for now!

Ling Ling the Panda!


For those of you that hate the cute and cuddle, here some slimy and scaly for you!

Hippity Hopper!

About This Game

Purchasing this game on Steam comes with $5 worth of Town Points (in-game currency)

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.

Roles

Town of Salem has 31 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!

Customization

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.

Achievements

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).

Not bad, certainly worth the buy. You will receive 1300 coins, which equals 5 dollars in the shop. Not to mention that it does not have ads and is overall more stable than its in-browser alternative.

When I first played this game on the free browser version, I didn't think it was anything special to be honest. However, as I played more with my friends, I started to enjoy the game more. I decided to pick up the Steam version while it was on sale and I continued to enjoy the crazy events that happen during each game.

I would suggest trying this game out through the browser version first. If you enjoy it, play more of it and if you have extra money to burn, purchase the Steam version for extra in-game currency. However, the game is basically free, so it's up to you!

Town of Salem is definitely a game that is fun and gets even better when playing with friends (and lynching them)!

This game is amazing, it's a ton of fun. That being said, I can only finish about half of my games without the server failing and having to close the window. Other players confirm this, do not buy at this time. When they fix their connection issues this game will be fantastic.

Quite a fun game - a bit like "Cluedo" except everyone has a role and actions they can take.

Google "Town of Salem" and it's free to play.

Despite all the tacky art and lowbrow graphics, the game mechanism itself is almost the perfection of the cardgame "Werewolf". Only more roles, fractions, abilities and winning conditions to create complex in-game situations which adds a ton of playability and freshness to the game.

And the human aspect, the interaction between players is always fascintating/disturbing. they are expected to be both deceptive and cooperative in order to complete their individual/group objectives. This is one of the most playable online multiplayer boardgames on steam.

Pretty damn fun. Basically a game of "mafia" if you've ever played that with some friends, but on a whole new level with many different roles that play a part in either protecting or killing the town.
