From 2 to 8 players, The Matriarch is a deadly hide & seek party game where everyone is an imposter. It mixes social guessing with hide-and-seek mechanics and causes Paranoia in all players involved!

BOTs are just programmed to complete their tasks, from milking cows to harvesting potatoes, they don't question the Matriarch's orders!

Goal: Hide from the Matriarch and find the exit

They look like BOTs but are controlled by real players.

  • Emulate the BOTs to avoid drawing attention to yourself, when the Matriarch is around.
  • Wait for the right opportunity to go underground.
  • Dig to find the path that will lead you to the exit.
  • Pray that the Matriarch doesn't have you in her radar when the night comes.

Goal: Identify and Sacrifice all the Sinners

Also controlled by a player.

  • Patrol the convent and observe the Nuns
  • Keep track of those with suspicious behavior...
  • ...or be unpredictable and catch them off guard
  • Identify and Sacrifice the Sinners


  • Customize your games: Experiment with different maps, rounds length, random Matriarch, and more!
  • Unlock new sacrifice devices: Giant cross, Guillotine, Pyre, Venomous Snakes...the choice is yours!
  • Play on public servers and meet new players, or open up your own private server and play with a group of friends.
  • Enjoy free updates that bring more maps and customization options!

Hey there! Welcome to this week's roundup of the YouTube, where we covered a comics-focused total conversion, a whodunnit indie, and a rebalance mod for a legendarily difficult campaign!

Note: As suggested by this week's features, we restarted IndieDB shorts posting as of this week. We're keeping tabs on the numbers and will be considering bringing the longer-form playthrough videos into the mix for IndieDB as we progress through the year!

Monday - Playthrough - Batman - Rogue City

The Arkham games put players in the dark and gritty shoes of the Batman, as his no-nonsense crime-fighting led him to the darkest streets of Gotham. Batman: Rogue City delivers a more colourful interpretation based on the older comics and being a DOOM TC, this mod puts you closer to Batman's iconic (and sometimes lesser-known) rogues gallery than ever before.


Wednesday - Shorts - The Matriarch

The Matriarch turns the usual "imposter"-type gameplay loop on its head by introducing not only an all-powerful player to evade, but putting the other players in a position of trying to deceive the leader of the coven by acting like an AI. Then, it's time to hurriedly make an escape attempt before you're found out and sentenced to death!

Friday - Playthrough - Halo 2 Anniversary Rebalanced

Halo 2 is notorious for its Legendary difficulty and all the one-shot snipers that come with it. If you wanted to tackle the middle-child of the original Halo trilogy with a little more fairness in mind, Halo 2 Anniversary Rebalanced is for you. Designed around reducing the need for luck and increasing the reward for skill, this is a must-play for those warded off by Halo 2's initial impression.

Phantom Attacks Scarab

That's all for this round-up. What do you think about the mods listed? Feel free to discuss below and check out the YouTube for more videos past, present, and future!
