No-One Can Hear You Scheme: Mush

I was on a bus the other day when an old man sneezed, so I know just how the poor people in the newly launched browser multiplayer game Mush musht* feel. They’re humanity’s last, best hope for survival. A 16-person ship traveling through space, fending off attacks, trying keep sane and safe. On top of the typical space trouble is a very particular problem: two of the team members on board have been infected with a deadly spore, and the infected pair will do whatever it takes to turn the people on board into…

… mush. You probably got that, but the suspense is justified. Mush is a nasty, nasty game. Friends and acquaintances can suddenly become raging, monstrous alien shape shifters who are in a confined space with you. While they’re working together, in a private chatroom, the rest of the ship is trying to survive for long enough to unmask the killers.

It’s actually a neat simulation of a spaceship: each character has a specific role, and the ship’s functions break down and need to be prioritised and repaired. With every action on board needing both Action and Movement points, it’s a terrifying balancing act to keep everything in good shape. Particularly while the Mush are lurking.

It’s from the makers of Die2Nite, which Quinns loved. I had a brief play on the beta and forgot to tell everyone how good it was, but it’s going live today so you can totally find out for yourselves.

*deal with it.
