Jamais Vue - the sensation of never having seen something you know you already saw. Inspired by the great games of the genre.

There's a corpse on the food cart, stars outside the window, and a room full of people wearing "Hi My name is" badges and confused looks. Clearly you missed something. Who are you again? Who are these other people? And why do you find yourself liking some of these people you don't know and suspicious of others?

You have four hours to find out who you are and why you are here, or at least to deal with the problems facing you before ... well, bad things happen. Figuring out what your goals are wouldn't be a bad thing either.

Flexible casting with problems to challenge your creativity and your social skills in an almost plausible world.

This game is an updated version of the one run at Intercon F. If you played in that one sign up for Presque Vu instead. But ahve your friends sign up for both.

Played at

Intercon I (2009)
