Telling Lies is a voyeuristic full motion video game where player sleuths try to unravel a compelling and realistic mystery involving sex, lies, terrorism, the FBI and murder. Your tool to accomplish this is a searchable database of video files, all captured without their subject’s knowledge.
Telling Lies is the investigation game from Sam Barlow, of Her Story fame. It uses the same basic mechanic, but adds more characters and features to tell a brand new story that feels more grounded than Her Story’s fairytale drama.
Her Story is as gripping as any TV crime drama, such as The Killing, delivering plot twists and big reveals. What makes the game more astonishing though, is that Barlow has no control over when those narrative moments happen.
Chella plays Her Story Part 2 and it just gets more confusing. Now our suspect is talking about STDs, crazy parties and mysterious deaths that might or might not have anything to do with the mystery at hand. Come by and see if she ever gets to the bottom of this crazy mystery.
Her Story is a deep and twisting mystery told in a series of full-motion video clips where players take the role of an investigator using an old-style police interview database. There is even a shine on the simulated CRT monitor. Created by master developer Sam Barlow, could Her Story help to revive FMV? Let’s Play Her Story and see if Chella can sleuth out enough clues to make the bust.
