Evil Overlord Games was showing off their massively multiplayer, story-driven text adventure, Susurrus: Season of Tides at Boston FIG this year. The game has players taking the role of a Mage, Vampire, or Werewolf in a world hidden just under normal mortal eyes.
The game contains tons of custom artwork and music to really help immerse the player into the world of Susurrus. Also, players’ actions as a whole influence the world around them, the Evil Overlord Team using player stats and choices to mold the future of the world.
I’ve barely scratched the surface of Susurrus with my Mage, but so far I’m loving every minute of it.
