You always knew you were different, somehow. Now you know exactly what "different" means.
Maybe you read minds. Maybe you have visions. Maybe you move things without touching them. Or maybe bad things happen when you get upset. . . .
The existence of psi-powers is denied by the authorities. But the new crop of adolescent "talents" are highly sought after. Government agencies want to use and study them. Corporations want to exploit them. Fanatic groups want to destroy them. For someone who is different, there is nowhere to live in peace.
You are different.
In Pariah, players take on the roles of teenagers who are just discovering and coming to terms with the vast powers within themselves. Taken into custody by an enigmatic government agency, they barely get used to their rather luxurious confinement and rigorous testing when someone discovers the Truth about their purpose. And now they must escape--by any means necessary.
