The desktop interface in Telling Lies

Her Story was an attention-grabbing experiment in FMV sleuthing, and author Sam Barlow’s followup Telling Lies seems like the subsequent step for the format. Players are requested to choose via 4 individuals’s lives via stolen and secretly recorded movies, and unravel the reality behind a “shocking incident” linking all of them, plus an oddly particular “96 small lies” alongside the way in which. Developers Furious Bee have roped in a forged {of professional} actors for this bold thriller, who you will get a peek at within the debut trailer beneath.

The trailer doesn’t give a lot indication of it, however Telling Lies seems to broaden on the format of Her Story by providing you with a digital laptop computer to poke round, apparently with a stolen NSA database on it. You’ll be clicking round these illicitly gathered movies on the lookout for key-words to look, cross-referencing data given by characters till you’ll be able to piece collectively the info behind the case. As for what the thriller includes, and who precisely the participant character is supposed to be remains to be unknown. I’ve a sense the devs will probably be taking part in their playing cards near their collective chest till launch.

The 4 mendacity leads in Telling Lies are performed by Logan Marshall-Green (Shocker in Spider-Man: Homecoming), Alexandra Shipp (Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse), Kerry Bishé (Lucy in Scrubs) and Angela Sarafyan (Clementine in Westworld) – not a foul lot. All able to delivering a convincing scene, given first rate path and a well-written script, so the standard of this one will hinge on its writing. It’s attention-grabbing to see mid-budget FMV adventures with skilled actors making a comeback after the style crashed and burnt within the CD-ROM period. Although the much less mentioned about Barlow’s #Wargames, the higher.

Telling Lies is due later this yr. You can discover it here on Steam, though no date and worth have been set. It’s revealed by Annapurna Interactive.
