(Death Recap + Deathnote + Journal Mechanics -- Observer was found dead in the morning!)

Throne of Lies: The Online Game of Deceit is a 3D, online-multiplayer social deduction game, inspired by medieval politics and the Werewolf/Mafia genre in a medieval setting.

The overall game will pit two main factions against each other (Blue Dragon vs. Black Rose). Players will be randomly assigned to either. No one knows who’s who at the start. Alliances will be made, assassinations will occur, secret meetings will take place, lies will be told -- and voting to execute those accused of treason will make every game session a new and unique experience.

You will be deceived many times, but there are actions you can take to help deduce who is or is not on your side. Use your abilities and social deduction skills to stay alive and win!

By design, Throne of Lies will have high replayability. You can play more than 1,000 game sessions, and you'll still get a very new and unique experience each game.

The game will be available on Steam for PC (eventually for Mac & Linux), and is being developed on Unity3D.




(The Alchemist class at night -- "Hmm... I should heal this player--Nope! Poison for you!")

There are 7-16 players per game session. A class is randomly assigned to each player. Membership to a team (one of 4 factions) -- either Blue Dragon, Black Rose, Neutral, or The Cult -- is also assigned to each player. There are a series of Day and Night rounds; each round allows only a short duration of time for players to make split-second decisions -- based on deductive clues obtained from the players’ special abilities and the social aspect of the game.

Each round has Day and Night timed phases. Any time within the Day period, players may vote to determine if a player is guilty of treason (a crime generally punishable by death). If the majority votes a player guilty, the accused player will be executed by the first person who accused them of treason. There are special execution effects tied to the accuser’s equipped weapon (a fire weapon would set the executed on fire, for example).



Outside of execution votes and trials during the Day phase, players will also have limited time to chat -- where they would gather and share evidence to decide who is or isn’t suspicious and decide who to slay or defend during the following Night phase.

Day phase: everyone meets in the Throne room. Players discuss and learn about what happened at Night -- such as who has been murdered, among other things. Players will then get together to cast their votes to execute a player. Being enemy factions, a Blue Dragon member would want to get rid of a Black Rose member, and vice versa. There will be times where a player may wrongly vote to execute an innocent person (or someone who was actually on the player’s side) for treason, by wrongly assuming they were guilty. Players can lie, act innocent, and blame others to try to trick everyone into voting someone they want gone.

Night phase: players retreat to their class-specific rooms. They may kill in the darkness or be part of others’ foul play. Different classes will have distinct abilities and intentions at Night. Some players can meet at Night, share secret plans, assassinate, spy, use special Night abilities, and more.

You can write in your journal to keep track of what happens during each Day -- such as who was killed or with whom a player has interacted.



+ Looking Good: Full 3D, Vulkan graphics @ 64-bit - With stunning illustrations and art.

+ Tricky: Your deduction skills are more useful than your 100+ class abilities.

+ Unique: Abilities change each phase with 30+ different class combinations with high replayability.

+ Twisting: "Recruiting" and "Converting" systems to release an alter-self (We don't want to say "the dark side!).

+ Opportunity: "King" and "Royalty" system: Rise up to inherit the Throne when the King is killed.

+ Rooms: 20+ unique, custom rooms at night.

+ Death is not the end: Death/ghost system with mini game. One may return or speak with the living!

+ Customized: Earn traditional, full skins -- but also claim new weapons, armor, and even auras. Only aesthetic unlocks (No pay-2-win here). Customize your character model -- it's not linked with your class!

+ Stylish Justice: Execution abilities are dependent on your currently-equipped weapon.

+ Community: 16-player online interrogation, trial and treason system with community decisions and active forum/Discord chat.

+ Be the writer: Every move contributes to the game's next move -- causing a ripple effect.

+ Be creative: Taunt your enemies by drawing "Deathnotes" to leave with their body -- drawn with blood and ink.

+ Practice, Practice, Practice: The art of perception knows no boundaries. Become a better negotiator, improve at convincing others, and get better at deducting situations that involve investigation and clues.

+ Be cool: Hang out and lay back at home while playing a social deduction game!

What does the error say, Clover? It's a Steam key -- you're not trying to apply it to our website, are you? :P

UPDATE : You may now buy your way into Alpha testing for $9.99 (for life - includes alpha/beta/release), but you must use Discord! Hop on :) https://discord.gg/gvNbRSB

This game looks briliant. I played Town of Salem, but this looks better. I can't wait for a chance to play it.

@VanShoe: Ask again a couple weeks after Alpha launch and we'll have better predictions. I'm guessing 1-2 months per phase (Alpha >> beta). Closed alpha is ~Mar31

what is ETA of the final release?

Registering won't get you a free key :/ if you signed up before 9/7/2016, you'll be emailed a steam key (if you didn't unsubscribe from us) for FREE for Alpha+. If you pledged $19+ on the Kickstarter, you'll get 4 steam keys for Alpha+. If you pledged $10 on the Kickstarter, you'll get 2 keys for Beta+.

If you missed both "Veteran Status" and our "Kickstarter", you'll have to wait until after alpha/beta~ we'll probably have pre-orders later for a small bonus.
