About the adventure

ALICE IS MISSING is a silent role-playing game about the disappearance of Alice Briarwood, a high school junior in the small town of Silent Falls. The game is played live and without verbal communication. Players inhabit their character for the entirety of the 90-minute play session, and instead of speaking, send text messages back and forth to the other characters in a group chat, as well as individually, as though they aren’t in the same place together. Haunting beautiful, deeply personal, and highly innovative, Alice is Missing puts a strong focus on the emotional engagement between players, immersing them in a tense, dramatic mystery that unfolds organically through the text messages they send to one another.

How to prepare

We will be using Discord to set up and run this unique game. Each player must have access to the Discord platform and a Discord account. A microphone will be necessary for game set up; a camera is optional. That's it for prep; everything else will be established and built in our session. If you'd like to learn more about the game, here are a few links: "One Good Thing: An amazing game played entirely via text message" (Emily VanDerWerff, Vox) "Alice Is Missing - A Silent Roleplaying Game Review" (Seamus Conneely, Cannibal Halfling Gaming) "How to Play Alice is Missing" (Becca Scott, Good Time Society)
