1) Town of Salem
Town of Salem is an online browser-based game that is like Among Us in so many ways. A person is randomly assigned a role from any 5 alignments – Town Member, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists, and Neutrals. Obviously, you don’t know the alignments of the other players. If you are a good guy (like a town member), your goal is to track down all the other villains before getting killed. A minimum of 7 and a maximum of 15 players take part in a match.
If you are in a villainous role, you will aim to kill all the town members at night without blowing up your cover. There are a total of 48 different roles in the game, which is a lot, with every character having a different set of abilities. There are 3 phases in the game – Night, Discussion & Voting, and Defense & Judgment.
2) Project Winter
Project Winter is a social deception and survival game. The game is pretty simple, there are Survivors and Traitors among a group of 8 strangers, but again you don’t know who is who.
As a survivor, you have to complete a series of tasks, only then you will be able to call one of the several rescue vehicles and escape to win the match. If you’re assigned the role of a traitor, your role will be to stop the survivors from escaping without being identified or killed. If you are identified as a traitor, you will be exiled and your game will be over.

The game offers several playing modes like a co-op for up to 6 players, a horde mode for up to 10 players, and a large-scale mode for up to 16 players. The game is free to play and is available on Steam.
Deceit is yet another action-filled, multiplayer FPS game. The game tests your instincts for trust and deception. A total of 6 players enter a match, two of which are infected. You wake up in unknown surroundings, you get a gun, then you work your way through to escape through the safety hatch. While progressing as an innocent, you will come across items on the map which will help you survive. Playing as an innocent, you have to stay alert all the time and keep an eye out for the suspicious behavior of the infected.
The infected will be busy collecting the blood and will try to blend in with the groups of innocents. During the blackout period at the end of each zone, each infected player transforms into its scary form and becomes faster and stronger, and has better eyesight. They will try to kill all the innocents.
Deceit has eerie gameplay and if you are a fan of horror-survival FPS games then you must try it.
