FMV examine ‘em up Telling Lies has launched, carry you reams of stolen footage to go looking by way of at your leisure. There’s a very good motive you’re nosing into the lives of those 4 strangers, I’m positive. At least, in the event you suppose bare curiosity is pretty much as good a motive as any. Which I do. Look, right here’s a sneak peak by way of the launch trailer.
Alice B’s finished a beautiful Telling Lies review that’s satisfied me of my preliminary emotions, which have been all the time that Her Story was attention-grabbing sufficient that I wanna take a peek at this newest launch by Sam Barlow and friends.
The game follows that fella up there within the header, whose identify I don’t know as a result of each the advertising supplies and Alice’s piece fastidiously omit it. I count on that that is intentional, so I shan’t search around. “His character is a man who is many things to many different people, and as you learn more about him you uncover a lot of different layers around what is basically a shithead,” says Alice. “After watching all his secret foibles and dodges and, ahaha, telling lies, it’s incredibly satisfying to discover the videos where various people tell him that he is, in fact, a shithead.” Ahh. Video games are certainly energy fantasies.
There is, after all, quite a bit else occurring moreover. “Espionage, eco-terrorism, pregnancy, teeth falling out, bedtime stories, blackmail,” lists Alice. But precisely which of those has led to you digging by way of the video clips is a part of the puzzle, so once more, let’s not spoil it for any of us by peeking. An intriguing game, the place a lot of the primary analysis I wish to do is finest saved for the expertise of taking part in the game itself. (I guess it’s the bedtime tales.)
Of course, an important factor Alice says is the bit the place she says that fundamental actor Logan Marshall-Green appears “inescapably like an alternate universe Tom Hardy,” lastly placing finish to the unplaced familiarity I’ve been feeling each time I have a look at him for weeks. Thanks, pal!
