from my experience, don't think it's worth considering this game 'serious' or 'competitive' because if everyone's playing perfectly, u can just cheese the game pretty hard and impostor will never win. e.g. everyone stacks together at a time and does tasks and just stares at the task bar and anyone whose bar doesnt go up or strays from the group just gets voted off, even if they have a perfectly reasonable alibi. add a couple people who just sit on cams or admin or vitals all day and u can make the game near impossible. i watched like a pretty smart lobby (i.e. 6-8 of the 10 players are probably some of the best) and impostors lost like 20 games in a row, and they were basically just firing blanks and voting someone off every round out of boredom. if someone 'might've' missed the bar going up on a card swipe or keys, or was just around the area of a kill or vent, they were fine just voting off 50/50s continuously and odds are u pretty much get there most of the time

pretty obvious statement: i guess it's same thing as werewolf and only as enjoyable as the group you're playing with. when everyone's on the same wavelength and there's room for misinformation, then it's a blast. on the other hand, i've had first-hand experience where playing with people who are playing 1d chess ruins the game as either crewmate or impostor.

yeah i don't think it has a particularly high skill cap or competitive potential. it's still just a party game at its core. i do think they could tweak it for more competitive players if they wanted to by forcing certain choices, but don't know if that's a high priority.

Speaking of people who are really dumb and just have fun playing this, tonight is a really good night for me because I don’t have to get up at the ass crack of dawn tomorrow for the gym. Next time I’d be able to play if not tonight is probably Saturday

So far we have:

Myself
Dubs
Lucky
Chicken
Moe
Friend of Moe
Can


Hoping I can get a few of my twitch viewers in tonight as well that haven’t played yet. We’ll see. If we get a bunch like last time I might just make an additional voicechat channel and bounce between games until a bunch drop and go to bed. Just gonna play it by ear I guess.

Hell yeah!

I wasn’t able to play last night cause servers went down right after I settled in to play.

Might try again tonight if enough people are around.

We need to do a daytime session some day. Maybe like Saturday, noon-ish or something?

I might be down later. I'm going to try and run my iOS through quicktime on my macbook, apparently that is a thing. The game looks fun!

I get disconnected fairly regularly on mobile. I might have to try the Mac OS trick.

i was playing this last night with some friends and a small earthquake hit LA. instead of doing something reasonable like making sure nothing was falling, while everyone was steadying themselves in case it got bad and the people not in the region were looking confused, i walked around and killed everyone

lol Joe that’s awesome

I’m down to watch this game but I would be terrible playing it. Alice, you’ve heard my giggle fits and yeah no everyone would hate me. Plus I watch xQc play this every day and they literally scream at each other, it’s insane

TLDR: scary to play, fun to watch
