Unrest is a story-heavy RPG set in a fantasy version of ancient India. It takes place in a city that has been beset by drought for so long that other problems have taken root. Unlike most RPGs, however, the player does not take the part of a party of heroes out to save everyone. Instead, the player switches back and forth between several characters who are just normal people making hard choices in an attempt to survive in desperate times. It has the same kind of moral punch as Papers, Please thrown into a branching narrative in which actions taken with one character can effect the prospects of another.
