You receive an invitation to participate in a mysterious contest at the "Grind House," an old mansion that was once the largest slaughterhouse in the state.
The invitation is signed simply by an individual known as "The Host." The letter promises you the opportunity to participate in a game to win a reward greater than you could ever imagine.
You arrive at a dilapidated mansion on a hillside with five other strangers. A tall, narrow man dressed in a tuxedo opens the huge, sinister doors to let you in.
"Thank you for coming tonight..."
The host says in a deep, sinister voice.
"The entertainment will be...to die for!"
The host bursts into a sinister laugh.
Behind you, the door slams shut and the heavy sound of a lock clicks. You and your companions are trapped at the mercy of the host's whims!
"Are we playing a little game?"
While survival is the ultimate goal, each player has a classic archetype with a secret objective. Some characters, like the Doctor, will try to keep everyone alive, while the Psychopath will surely try to divide everyone. Others, like the Pianist, simply want to keep their hands intact.
For those unfortunate souls who perish in the house, the game is not over. Players can return as ghosts to haunt the survivors as they try to escape unharmed.
After exploring the 5 random rooms in the house, the remaining survivors add up their scores to determine who will be the winner.
