About This Game

Masks of Deception is a 6 player horror game where you must use teamwork, equipment, and sensing abilities to identify then exorcize the demon in your group... or the demon will slay you first. You’ve been sent to disrupt and purge a demon before it claims three lives and fulfills its ritual. Purgers (innocents) must be cautious in performing their task as the demon isn’t the only one looking to slay them. Others silently patrol searching for victims outside ultraviolet protection, and some will attack only if you prompt them to.

As a Purger you’ll be traveling around the entire area looking for paranormal zones to investigate, making progress towards uncovering the Demon’s type. These zones appear and disappear in different locations as time goes on. While searching it can be easy to lose sight of teammates, offering the Demon an opportunity to perform a suspicious action. Trust must be earned and even then isn’t a guarantee. Keep everyone at an arm's reach until you can confirm they are who they claim to be.

For every three demon books the Demon collects and deposits on a summoning circle they’ll be able to kill one Purger. As your party dwindles the Demon’s identity will likely be exposed if you haven’t learned who it was already. Time is of the essence to figure out the Demon’s type, with both uncovered you can vote and cast the incantation to exorcize the Demon. Performed correctly the Demon will be purged from this world and the Purgers will win. However if the vote is cast incorrectly the Purgers will lose and the Demon will be freed. One chance is all you get, make it count.

Falling victim to one of the threats or the Demon isn’t the end. After death you respawn as a Ghost with separate tasks of destroying Demon Books and collecting Sacred Pages scattered around the area. If you manage to collect all 10 Sacred Pages and turn them in you and the Purgers will exorcize the Demon.
