I saw a couple of articles about this in the past, but didn't think much of it. The reviews in the app store were pretty terrible. But I eventually gave in and downloaded the app.
The Game is simple, I am a detective trying to solve a murder from 1994. All I have is a computer with old video files from 'her' interviews. I can use search words to find videos I have not seen before. E.g. if she mentions a name I have not heard before I can then go on and search for that name to find more videos.
My biggest mistake was starting the game at 11.40pm and having to stop half way through which has left me desperate to solve the mystery.
I think perhaps those terrible reviews might have been from people not used to a game or app like this which is very self motivating and frustrating at times.
Her Story is the new video game from Sam Barlow, creator of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle. A crime fiction game with non-linear storytelling, Her Story revolves around a police database full of live action video footage. It stars Viva Seifert, actress and one half of the band Joe Gideon and the Shark. Her Story’s development was made possible by the support of the Indie Fund. The game will release in June 2015 on PC, Mac (Steam and Humble) and iOS.
