Town of Salem is an online multiplayer social deduction strategy game developed and published by indie game developer BlankMediaGames. Early alpha and beta versions were browser-based and free-to-play. On October 14, , the game was released for mobile iOS and Android platforms after a successful and long-supported Kickstarter fundraiser. Town of Salem is reportedly the largest online version of the classic social deduction party game Werewolf. The game is inspired by the party games Werewolf and Mafia , in which players adopt different roles belonging to different teams, of an informed minority and uninformed majority, aiming to eliminate each other for control of the village or town. As the name implies, the game takes place in the historical town of Salem , Massachusetts , alluding to the infamous witch-hunt trials that killed innocent townspeople due to paranoia and superstition. The chief strategy of the game is to survive and accomplish win conditions.
There are currently 33 roles in Town of Salem, separated into 3 categories: Town , Mafia , and Neutral. These include 7 unique roles. Users who own Town of Salem - The Coven have 49 roles to play with, 18 which are unique. This expansion includes the new Coven faction. The official roles list provided by BlankMediaGames can be found here. The official sub-forum for role suggestion can be found here. The Town roles each have one goal: "Lynch every criminal and evildoer. The Neutral roles each have different goals, and some of those are compatible with the goals of the other teams, meaning that some of these roles are able to win alongside them.
A Unique Role is a role that is limited to 1 player per game. For most of them, there can never be two in one game; the Godfather and Mafioso can be inherited, but even for those, only one of each can be alive at once. Currently, there are 18 Unique Roles. Most Unique Roles have abilities which would cause gameplay issues if there was more than one player with the same role. Other Unique Roles have too powerful abilities and would upset game balance if there was more than one.
