You are a woman of humble origins, trained to become a spy for the USSR. The mission: infiltrate McCarthy-era America. You’re what the red scare fears the most, and you are able to use espionage, persuasion and seduction to twist American fears of communism towards your nation’s goals. Meet famous military and government officials, assassinate important people (no actual historical figures, as that would probably be in bad taste), hand out Soviet and socialist propaganda, infiltrate government offices, spread rumors of Soviet power, and accuse others of communist sentiment in order to keep suspicion off of you. All of this while you avoid being executed for the spy you are. The feds are hot on your trail, but you’re always a step ahead.
Not strictly historically accurate where fiction is more interesting. The main character is female, but the player can define her personality, actions and attitude. You’ll also get to choose your code name, real name, and American name.
No. I am NOT abandoning/quitting Blood for Poppies. This is just a game I’m going to work on once BFP is complete. I’m not sure if people would actually be interested in it. Since it’s recent history I feel like I could almost be treading a fine line, but it’s an era that doesn’t get enough literature, and it’s a really interesting time to me.
