It's just Among us honestly
Hey BMG, when's your next DLC announcement??
Also no I am not going to get a PFP because...


My best role ideas:

The Possessor

Arms Dealer

The Reaper

Witch Hunter

Serial Killer (Buff)

I won't try it because I don't play Among us and currently I'm interested in other games. But what I like about ToS is how all actions are decided by buttons, so there are no chases or mechanical skills involved. This isn't present in among us.

This game will probably be among us with roles, unless I'm forgetting about something.

I still hope one day the game will have private lobbies. They would really help.

Would have MUCH preferred just, a direct sequel to TOS tbh. That's all the game really needed, not to be turned into an Among Us clone.

I don't think a sequel is needed, especially since this game isn't linear. Updates can add a lot. This game still has a lot of potential to grow (mostly in custom, especially if mods are allowed).

any "sequel" of town of salem would probably just come in the form of another DLC

regarding traitors in salem, yeah it's similar to among us. hopefully there will be more features that make it different enough to be considered an actually separate game

btw, this isn't backed up by any statistics but i think a lot of town of salem's success came from the game being available on browser. it lets low-end pc players play and doesnt take up computer storage
as such, i think traitors in salem should also be available browser

Agreed. For one thing, it makes it much more accessible to Linux users since Town of Salem never got Linux support on Steam.

I mean a sequel could let them add a fresh coat of paint and rework some things that are currently hard coded in such as, only being able to target 2 people in one night.

That's not how programming works. If a code is poorly organized to the point to where you can't change a value of how many people to target, a sequel is the least of the programmer's worries

Something like that should literally just be an integer value anyway which takes 2 seconds to edit in code

Maybe that's an UI problem and not a code problem?

It'd be a code issue since targets available shouldnt be a thing to leave to the UI, else it'll make the code more of a mess to work with.

You're probably right, I don't know about programming.

My point is that a sequel would give a chance to restructure the game and open it up for more opportunities.

Should have some more role related videos coming out soon. Our first playtest was pretty basic so our friends and family that were part of the play test could get a feel for things. The focus was more on the core game play, map size, quest design, etc. Later today we will be posting the first video in a series talking about how different roles work, and showing how they work in game. This is alpha, so art, music, sound effects, npcs, etc are mostly placeholders or first drafts.

In our last playtest video we played with a mostly basic role list, but want to do more to show off all the roles in the game. Today we are showing off the first in a series of role reveal videos where we will show how each role's abilities work.

Today’s Role Reveal is the Disguiser!

Power Traitor is a category of Traitors with the ability to double kill basically.
