Improviso is a game about ACTING! Players are paired online as the Lead Actor and Director of a low-budget science fiction movie. The Lead Actor plays the role of Ted, a reporter trying to get his big break with a cover story about the government's alien cover-up. The Director selects scenes, chooses the soundtrack, summons special effects, and controls the supporting cast: the Scientist, the Alien, the Government Agent, and the Little Girl. Players work together to dramatize three short scenes taking place in Area 51, a crashed spaceship, and a wilderness camp site. The chat log encourages performances with Oscar-worthy dialogue, and a point-and-click interface enables actors to interact with numerous props, change costumes, and even play dead!
