GoodGame Mafia is a free to play, browser-based MMO game developed by GoodGame Studios.

There's a huge variety of quests available including disposing of dead bodies, fighting off rival families, and even ensuring the right candidate wins the election for mayor. Each quest works in a similar fashion, they all require a certain amount of energy and a timer. Each quest requires the player to wait for up to 30 seconds, to simulate travel time, before their faced against an opponent in battle.
The combat system works in a unique way, displaying both your characters and your enemy's portrait, as well as currently equipped weapons and stats. Each player then takes it in turns to use their weapon to inflict damage. In order to win a battle you must reduce your opponents HP to 0.
There's a great selection of customization options available for your character. Firstly there's selecting your avatar, GoodGame Mafia uses a random system but there's so many choices that it's easy to find an avatar that suits you.
