I'm a late-adopter when it comes to technology. People were texting for at least a decade regularly before I got in on it. But since then, texting has become my life. I mean, my phone has 5 different messenger programs on it, all text-based. It's how we communicate these days. And it's also how you communicate in Alice is Missing, a new silent RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. The entire game is played via text messages.
From the campaign:
From the creative mind behind Icarus: A Storytelling Game About How Great Civilizations Fall, comes Spenser Starke’s next project Alice is Missing, a silent role-playing game about the disappearance of Alice Briarwood, a high school junior in the small town of Silent Falls.
Developed by Hunters Entertainment and published & distributed by Renegade Game Studios, Alice Is Missing is a unique kind of roleplaying game in which players only communicate using their phones, sending text messages to each other as they unearth clues about what happened to Alice.
The campaign's almost to 3x funded with 27 days left to go.
