Early Edition

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

This is our first official release of the game, and follow-up to our Epsilon and Theta test releases. Epsilon tested the proof of concept for the narrative structure of the game. Theta introduced the multiplayer features. The Early Edition release contains a fully operational game, complete with 3 species, 10 factions, 5 city cycles, and the ability to make in-game purchases.

We have just launched a Patreon page! If you enjoy the game and would like to see it continue development, 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!

Come See Us at BFIG!
This Saturday, 9/23, from 9am to 6pm, we’ll be at the annual Boston Festival of Independent Games, affectionately known as BFIG.

Susurrus: Season of Tides Keep Getting Better on a 2-Week Cycle
As we shake out the aftermath of Gen Con and the mad development cycle that led up to the first public release, we’ve established a new set of protocols for our team to follow as we keep on making Susurrus: Season of Tides better and prepare to move it out of Early Edition. The first update since Gen Con was released on Friday, September 8: play it now to see some of the new nifty things! We’ve improved the chat interface and done some other tweaks, bug fixes, and feature additions that’ll make the game a smoother experience, of course. Below, though, are the fun things we’ve added this release:
We've Been Accepted to IndieCade!
Splendid, gentle, and otherwise Victorianly-addressed readers: we are thrilled to announce that our game, Susurrus: Season of Tides, has been accepted as a Festival Selection in this year’s IndieCade! IndieCade has been called the Sundance of indie games, and this October 6-8, it will celebrate its 10th year in California. The entry process was many pages long and set a very high bar just to attempt to get in, but ultimately, our scrappy little text adventure was chosen from over 1,000 entrants to appear on the show floor in Little Tokyo, in downtown Los Angeles. We’ll be among around 100 other games of all types – tabletop, digital, field games, you name it – where attendees will be able to try things out to their hearts’ content.

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!
