FACE

FACE is uncomfortable. Your skin feels weird. Explore a world inhabited by faces. The faces of previous players. Your hair grows at uneven paces. When FACE begins, it'll ask two things: it'll ask you to sign an honesty contract, and it'll want to take a photo of your face. Your doppelganger is dangerous. It has a marker and draws on people's faces. It's wearing your face. Beat it in a staring contest. Then you'll become part of FACE. You're ugly. And everyone will see it.
