Sam Barlow and Annapurna Interactive introduced that Telling Lies, an interactive investigation mystery sport, debuts on August 23 at the PC, Mac, and iOS units.
The sport, which is to be had for pre-order at the App Retailer, used to be advanced by way of Sam Barlow, author of the award-winning name Her Tale. Telling Lies explores the level to which we will ever really know the ones we like.
I’ve performed round with it and could have my impressions quickly. Telling Lies begins out with a girl who sits down in entrance of a pc loaded with a stolen Nationwide Safety Company database filled with movie pictures. You play all of the sport, sitting in entrance of the pc looking thru that video for clues. It’s the similar mechanic as Her Tale.
The pictures (taken from smartphone surveillance) covers two years within the intimate lives of 4 folks whose lives are connected by way of a unmarried incident. You discover the database by way of typing seek phrases, watch the clips the place the ones phrases are spoken, and piece in combination the tale. The tale is a thriller, however it unfolds in a non-linear means in keeping with which phrases you seek for first.
This sport’s video scenes come with actors Logan Marshall-Inexperienced (Prometheus), Alexandra Shipp (X-Males: Apocalypse), Kerry Bishé (The Romanoffs), and Angela Sarafyan (Westworld).
