The game will be available on Steam (PC), and is being developed with the Unity3D engine. Throne of Lies will be the first [Non-VR] standalone 3D social deduction game to be produced. Seen at GDC and Unite 2016.

There are 16 players per game session, each is randomly assigned a class. Players will also be assigned membership to a team (one of 4 factions), which could be either Blue Dragon, Black Rose, Neutral, or The Cult. There are a series of Day and Night rounds. Each round allows only a short duration of time for players to make split-second decisions, based on deductive clues obtained from the players’ special abilities and the social aspect of the game.

The Day Phase is when players discuss and learn about what happened at night, such as who has been murdered, among other things. Players will then get together to cast their votes to execute a player. Being enemy factions, a Blue Dragon member would want to get rid of a Black Rose member, and vice versa. There will be times where you wrongly vote to execute an innocent person (or someone who was actually on your side) for treason, by wrongly assuming they were guilty. You can lie, act innocent, and blame others to try to trick everyone into voting someone you want gone. players may vote to determine if a player is guilty of treason. If the majority votes a player guilty, the accused player will be executed by the first person who accused them of treason. There are special execution effects tied to the accuser's equipped weapon (a fire weapon would light the executed player to flames, for example).

Outside of the proper voting to be executed trials during the day, players will have limited time to chat, where they would gather and share evidence to decide who is or isn't suspicious, allowing them to decide who to slay or defend during the following night phase.

The Night Phase is when a player may kill in the darkness and be part of others’ foul play. Different classes will have different abilities and intentions at night. Players can visit each other’s private rooms, share secret plans, assassinate, spy, use special night abilities, and more.
You can write in your journal to keep track of what happens each day, such as who was killed or who you interacted with.

You'll have a deathnote which you can hand-drown with your mouse. You'll write in using ink and blood (black and red). Whatever your write or draw in your deathnote will be revealed to all of the other players when you die.

There are also two neutral factions to act as wildcards during these efforts. When a king is slain, a new King rises, based off a nomination amongst the Royals class types (those with an ability to step up to become King).

The players’ ultimate goal for their faction (good or evil), is to eliminate all opposing factions, with the exception of neutral factions that may have their own goals or take advantage of the weak.

Want to execute each other in your own way? Throne of Lies will have many weapons to choose from which means you'll get to bring style into taking the life of those accused of treason. Each weapon type has a special execution effect.

Each player has their own room, which they'll stay in each night. Every class type has their own room style. As mentioned in the gameplay section, players may visit each other's rooms at night to use their night abilities on them, such as attempt to assassinate them secretly or simply spy on them, among other things.


The gameplay of Throne of Lies, unlike other Mafia/Werewolf games, focuses on giving players multiple classes with both day and night abilities, choices in armor and weapons, and having a Royalty system (where a King rules and can be replaced) exist for the first time in any online game of this genre. You can actually visit the inside of other players’ rooms, meaning if you’re in a secret meeting, you’ll see your friends there with you. This is the first 3D game in the genre, giving full immersion, and at certain moments, freedom of wandering around.

With 35 unique classes and over 100 abilities, all fully illustrated, we mean serious business when it comes to getting the most out of our game. Check out our Deviantart or some of our images - this is just a fraction of the art effort with our brilliant in-house artists to help bring about further immersion within our game.

We make it easy to learn and understand what each class does by having an in-game wiki with class cards. You may also find more info on ToL Wikia.
