Patch 2.3.1 Bug Fixes Galore

Hey Townies,

Today we are launching a pretty small patch, but it is packed full of bug fixes. Check out everything that has been fixed below.

Bug Fixes:

Added a sound to the Celebrate taunt.

Fixed a bug where the Crusader skin was incorrectly being labeled as she.
Fixed a bug that caused the Amnesiac to be unable to remember they were a Vampire Hunter if one was currently alive.
Fixed a bug where if the Jester was hanged, and did not select a target to haunt the game could select the Jester as the random target causing no one to die.
Fixed a bug that caused the Doctor to not be notified they had healed their target if they healed an Escort, or Consort, that role blocked a Serial Killer.
Fixed a bug where the Coven Random Neutral in Coven Custom games could spawn any role, not just Coven Random Neutral roles.
Fixed a bug where the Coven Leader could not control the Vigilante to kill someone Night 1.
Fixed a bug that caused traps from the Trapper to not be destroyed if the player trapped was hanged.
Fixed several bugs that could allow a hacked client to do things that we did not allow, such as vote innocent on themselves, allow for multiple capital letters in a row in a users name in game, and more.
Fixed a bug that caused traps to not be able to protect a Crusader.
Fixed a bug that caused the Doctor to not be notified they had healed their target if they healed a killing that attacked a trapped player.
Fixed a bug where if a Necromancer reanimated a dead Godfather to kill someone it gave the order to the Mafioso changing their target.

Ranked Season 3 Begins!

Hey Townies,

Today we are starting Season 3 of Ranked! As you may already know if you have checked out our most recent announcements Season 2 of Ranked was our best season so far, and we want to thank everyone who participated in it.

Balance Changes!

Be sure to keep in mind that Jesters can now kill players who abstain on them when they are hanged!

This is the only change currently being made as win rates are close to where we want them to be. We think smaller changes here and there will be what we need to bring the win rates in line.

This change allows the Jester more options on who to kill, and can allow the Jester the potential to remove roles that are more impactful from the game than before. This should make players more hesitant to vote guilty on a potential evil role as well. This has always been the general idea behind the Jester, but certain play styles have made the Jester less impactful on games than we had originally hoped. We believe this change will be good for overall health of the role, and will help it be the role it was always meant to be. A role that makes you second guess yourself when trying to hang someone.

Rating Changes!

For Ranked Season 3 we will be making a change to the "K-Factor" in our rating algorithm. What this means in non-mumbo jumbo terms is that the base rating that you will earn or lose per game will be increased. This should help push you to the tier that you belong in more quickly than last season.

Bug Fixes

Fixed an issue where season rewards were given based on current rating instead of season high rating.
Fixed an issue where the Doctor achievement "Stitch Yourself" was not being granted properly.

Thanks for being involved. We are looking forward to seeing how this season goes, and we will be keeping an eye on everything.

Happy Hanging from the BMG Team!

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).
