Her Story, a Mystery Game by Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Creator Sam Barlow, Has Been Revealed

Posted by Jessica Fisher on January 22nd, 2015

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.

Her Story is due to release early in 2015.

Posted by Jennifer Allen on August 8th, 2014

At some point "very soon," Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will be making its way to iOS. It's already live on the Japanese App Store, so it's just a matter of waiting and seeing when us Western gamers can enjoy the delights.

Previously solely a 3DS game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series, with you having to solve various court cases by gathering up evidence and determining contradictions in witness statements. I've played the 3DS version and it's excellent. We can only hope that the iOS version comes to our virtual shores very soon.
