DETECTIVE is a "reverse-Turing test" chat game where the player gets randomly paired with either another player or an automated chat bot (ROBOT, powered by BOT Libre). Human players will be randomly assigned a role of either a DETECTIVE or an IMPOSTOR.
As a DETECTIVE, you must figure out whether you are speaking with a ROBOT (the chat bot) or an IMPOSTOR, another human player pretending to be a ROBOT.
If you are an IMPOSTOR, you must trick the DETECTIVE into thinking that they are speaking to a ROBOT.
You have an option to sign in using your Twitter account to record the number of games you played in each role and your success rate. You can see how all players are doing in this game in the public leaderboard.
This game is now a Botwiki project (here's how you can support it). If you'd like to learn more about the game, check out related posts on my blog. You can also follow @detectivelogs for updates and "best of Detective logs".Back to top
