October game: Imposters

[Imposters was October’s Patreon game. It has now been taken down but you will be able to find it soon on the Black Armada itch store.]

A few months back, I was thinking about imposter syndrome and how many of us experience the feeling that we don’t really belong where we are, and that thought sparked a game. In Imposters, you really don’t belong: you’re secretly a robot, a ghost, a vampire or a time traveller. The world around you doesn’t make sense and constantly trips you up.

Imposters is about that experience of a world that isn’t made for you, the ways in which the human world doesn’t really make all that much sense, and the ways in which you can support each other through it. It has a vibe similar to What We Do In The Shadows, Being Human, Ghosts and (for those with long memories) Third Rock From The Sun. You can play it as a straight drama or with more of a sitcom feel, or perhaps blend the two together.

It’s a lovely little game, juxtaposing farce and pathos, and I hope you enjoy playing it.
