You are an influential citizen in the town of Salem, Massachusetts in the late 17th century. Like so many others in the town, you are disgusted by all of the witches who are masquerading as honorable puritans. You have gathered with other citizens to abandon Salem and found a new, witch-free town: New Salem.
You will each construct buildings in New Salem, and your actions will bring either Hope or Despair to the town. You suspect some of the founders may in fact be witches themselves, so you must determine who you can trust. Expose the witches and put them on trial before New Salem suffers the same fate as the town you left behind.
