Online game Town of Salem finds tabletop success on Kickstarter

Online game Town of Salem is moving into the tabletop arena thanks to the success of a Kickstarter project that smashed its goal of $10k in days.

Launched by BlankMediaGames – the same team behind the hit online title – Town of Salem – The Card Game has secured $259,300 with 17 days of its crowdfunding project on Kickstarter remaining.

Billed by the team as the card game for those who ‘like hanging their friends, werewolves, pilgrims and fancy witch hats’ town of Salem pits players against each other ‘in a real test of cunning.’

A take on the historic witch hunts and trials that plagued Salem throughout the 17th century, the game challenges players to hunt the murderer among them. If a player gets enough accusations the town can put them on trial.

Town of Salem was created by Josh Brittain and Blake Burns, the founders of BlankMediaGames, an indie company that got its start on Kickstarter back in 2014.

“The game has had great success as an online title and now we are bringing murder to your tabletop.”

Town of Salem is the latest in a swathe of videogame and online games to find tabletop adaptation success on Kickstarter, joining the likes of Dark Souls the board game based on the hit Dark Souls videogame franchise and a Bloodborne tabletop title inspired by a videogame franchise of the same name.
