About Impostor Factory

About this game

Impostor Factory is a narrative-driven adventure game that is categorically out of its mind.

Dr Watts and Dr Rosalene have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live their lives, all the way from the very beginning.

But this isn't their story. Probably.

Instead, it's about Quincy. Let me tell you a story about him.

One day, Quincy was invited to a fancy party at a suspiciously secluded mansion. So, he accepted and went; because even though the mansion was suspicious and secluded, it was also fancy and had a party.

In fact, it turned out to be so fancy that there was a time machine in its bathroom. Quincy could wash his hands and time-travel while he was at it. Talk about a time-saver!

But of course, then people start dying because that's what they do. And somewhere along the way, things get a little Lovecraftian and tentacles are involved.

Anyway, that's around 1/3 of what the game is really about.

  • A story that will make you curse at the screen
  • A cosy mix between adventure game elements and classic RPG aesthetics

"Writing a review for games like this feels bizarre to me, because synthesizing the work down to a number honestly feels wrong. It’s akin to going into an art gallery and...

"Impostor Factory teases and deceives, involves and strangles. It doesn't have the destabilizing power of To The Moon, nor the brain balance of Finding Paradise, but that's okay."

Hey Poor Player

"Impostor Factory offers yet another tear-jerking, emotional roller coaster with murder mystery flair. The very definition of bittersweet, Impostor Factory’s emotional climax...

The opening is awesome. There is mystery that quickly pulls you in, then...screeches to a halt. After the first fifteen minutes or so, the game turns into a discussion about memories and AI, and you have no control to do anything. There is nothing to play.

Not what you expect from a Typical RPG maker but this is heavy story driven game. Not much to do apart from running etc no real form. Ending was really good.
