Early Edition

Welcome to the Early Edition release of Susurrus: Season of Tides.

We have continued to iterate on the Early Edition release - our first official release of the game - for some months now. Besides the 3 species, 10 factions, and 5 city cycles, the game now has a faction contest running, an ever-growing city full of weird, repeatable encounters, and premium story content available in the Store.

You can support our continued development on Patreon! If you enjoy the game, please consider supporting us on a monthly basis. We are offering rewards, including in-game items and a chance to appear as an NPC! More importantly, though, your support is critical to our ongoing success. Visit our Patreon!

Thanks again for playing with us early!

Meet the Factions: The Directorate (DSI)
The Directorate for Special Investigations (DSI) is hardly the flashiest of the factions floating around this city. An obscure branch of the government, they were originally founded as an elite unit of a larger intelligence agency, targeting top-tier organized crime figures who were hard to pin down using conventional means. A few high-profile successes put DSI firmly on the map. Their activities thereafter prioritized a return to more uncharted corners. Which is not to say that they didn’t get the job done. On the contrary. Their success continued, for a time, but the nature of the quarry requires hunters who can hide in plain sight. There’s a reason DSI personnel generally wear blue suits. Standing out in a crowd is not in their interest.
Evil Overlords and Susurrus at Arisia!
Friends, fans, countrypeople. Lend us your ears. (We promise to give them back. Probably.) Next weekend, January 12-14, 2018, your Evil Overlords and Susurrus will be at Arisia, New England’s largest science fiction and fantasy convention! Susurrus players at IndieCade ’17 We will have two main presences at the con, and we hope you’ll stop by and visit both! First, Evil Overlords will be at the Indie*Expo, an expansion of last year’s Indie Game Expo to include the Artists and Authors Alley along with game creators! We’ll be there to demo the game, give out some convention-only swag, and say hi. Second, our art director Duncan Eagleson will be showing his work for Susurrus at the Arisia Art Show. Gawk, get prints, and meet the man behind our spectacular art team at Arisia’s most anticipated yearly offering! We hope to see you there, at the Boston Westin Waterfront Hotel, from Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 14! Tickets here!
New Year 2018 Special Edition Comic
Happy New Year to all you evil ones. Here is a cartoon from 1905 by John T. McCutcheon, who clearly wished for 1904 to let the door of history hit it in the ass on the way out. We’ve made some appropriate changes. Please enjoy.
Meet the Factions: Hermes
The existence of Hermes is certainly nothing new. But since you began to perceive magic, you’ve noticed there’s something… odd… about the internet. Sometimes you feel like the search engine is watching you. Sometimes you have the strangest dreams if you’re browsing too late at night.

What Is Susurrus?

Susurrus: Season of Tides is a free-to-play story-driven web game of conspiracy and horror in an urban fantasy world.

Largely text-driven, Susurrus draws from old-school text adventures, modern interactive fiction, and the deep character development of tabletop and live-action RPGs. Choose your path as a vampire, werewolf, or mage, then watch how your power unfolds in a modern world filled with uncanny beasts, walking nightmares, and silent conspiracies. You'll be called to ally yourself with one of ten factions as you uncover the secrets of your home city. Along the way, you'll meet a vibrant and diverse cast of NPCs, enlist their aid, and develop personal relationships with them.

The twist? Susurrus is multiplayer, so you can team up with players from all over the world to build a unique power base of connections and resources to advance your cabal's objectives - or explore the world on your own.

Start playing now by clicking the 'Play' button at the top! Over the next few months, watch for new story arcs as they are released - and see how Season One unfolds!
