Sam Barlow, writer and designer of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, has released a teaser trailer for his new independent game, Her Story. The game uses live action footage to tell a tale of mystery surrounding the disappearance of a woman’s husband in 1994. Players will have access to archived video footage from a police database that shows interviews with the woman. As she tells her tale you will be tasked with researching her story using the database.
“If you can Google, you can play Her Story. The mechanic of searching for clips in the database is so simple that anyone can pick up and play. But it’s a mechanic that quickly reveals its richness and complexity. At times it can feel like you’re engaged in a genuine dialogue with this woman and her story. It’s a unique way to interact with a narrative, a sculptural way of viewing a story — and something that can only be done interactively,” Sam Barlow said in a press release.
