One of the most popular tabletop RPGs of the last few years is getting a movie adaptation. Alice is Missing, a TTRPG from Hunters Entertainment, is being developed by Paramount, where it will be written by Becca Gleason (“The Summer I Got Pretty”) and Spencer Starke, the game’s creator.
Alice is Missing is a role-playing game about the disappearance of Alice Brierwood, a high school student in the small town of Silent Falls. The game is played entirely via text messages and each player participates as a unique character with their own motivation. All the players are texting each other, slowly collecting a lot of clues and figuring out exactly what happened to Alice.
Alice is Missing was originally launched on Kickstarter over two years ago and quickly received funding. Thereafter, the game gained popularity among fans and critics, eventually winning the Ennie Award for Best Game and Best Product of the Year.
The film will be produced by Ivan Van Norman, head of Critical Role Darrington Press, and Christopher De La Rosa.
