Paranoia (game)

Paranoia is a role playing game set in a dystopian future. Despite the dystopian background, the tone of the game is light, humorous and tongue-in-cheek rather than dark and heavy. The setting is a futuristic underground city controlled by a paranoid computer which uses the players as agents to eliminate mutants and secret society members.

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers

The computer is under the belief that it is the victim of communists it must seek out and destroy. Humorous undertones are provided by the fact that all players are mutants and secret society members, and much of the dynamic of the game involves trying to double-cross fellow players and to keep one step ahead of them.
