Orwell reviews ( 7 )

Great game. It's insightful, interesting and draws you right in with a compelling story and unique presentation. If you're looking for something casual, intriguing and mysterious, you'll be satisfied. P.S. it really makes you feel like a creeper, conversations between characters seem very authentic and I felt like I shouldn't have read some of them.

Really innovative take on a detective game. It plays like a really flash, atmospheric, choose-your-own adventure. The story is really engaging and exciting, with many twists and turns. It's not hugely difficult, but you are often presented with moralistic choices and dilemmas. What you upload to the system can really sway the outcome. It is almost an art piece, a commentary on the modern rush towards total surveillance we see in politics now. I felt totally creeped out for most of the game, and I believe this is Orwell delivering exactly what is intended.

Orwell is one of the most interesting games I've played in a while; it's well thought out, the game experience is smooth and natural and the core elements are solid. It's arguably not a game for everyone but it's a fantastic achievement, that should be beyond doubt. So who is it for? I guess that's the core question for an indie, niche production such as this so let's get right to it: Orwell is for the player looking for a contemplative, narrative-driven challenge that you can play on your own time. If you like unravelling a mystery carefully, if you like narrative driven games or if you really like surveying people, then this is definitely for you. Who's it not for? It's not for players looking for explosions, fast-paced action or who don't like to read. You read in this game, quite a lot. It's not like reading a novel but expect reading. In Orwell, you take on the role of an analyst who's trying to unravel a terrorist plot using the governments newest super-surveillance tool, Orwell. The system highlights 'datachunks' in POIs internet activity, chat activity, phone activity, anything really, and it's your job to decide what information is pertinent and what isn't. You build files on suspects while you slowly expand the network of POIs and what you choose to include is what decides the 'system's' attitude towards groups and individuals. Of course, the question soon beckons; should you be doing any of this? As the story moves forward, the player is confronted with many choices and they have real consequences for the story, not merely symbolic ones. Furthermore, while the system highlights important information, some decisions can only be made accurately through the players own memory and deductions from text pieces that at the time perhaps seemed inconsequential. It's a game that rewards the player for keeping up and thinking for themselves.

This is basically a detective game - sort of similar to Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishment - but in a very unique package. Instead of walking around, clicking things and hoping to find clues, the game is a copy-paste simulator, and you find your clues by sifting through articles, IM conversations, E-mail accounts, wiretapped phone calls... This may sound a little bit boring and, indeed, early on it is. At times, there are so many pieces of information involved that it almost feels grindy and overwhelming. However, the game does a great job at gradually raising the stakes, and towards the end, the tension and sense of urgency is almost unbearable. Overall, as far as story-driven detective games go, this one is pretty good, and the writing really pushes it over the top. Looking forward to see more from these guys.

It's a nice little game, you can read what you like in to it about government monitoring etc. The actual game is pretty solid, looks nice, and the impact you can have on the outcome is quite good. Just feels like there could of been a little bit more there in terms of how it turns out or the impact you have. Worth a look though.

I like the idea and graphics but after playing a few minutes with so many pop up tutorials I cannot stand them any more. It's not actually that fun or innovative.

This is NOT a game in any sense of the word! Firstly, it should be classified as a visual novel, since all you do is read a story. Secondly, there seems to be little in room for choices. You simply follow a guy who asks you to read something, he highlights basic information and you drag and drop those highlights from one side of the screen to the other. I have played through a few chapters and was bored at that point. The story does not develop. You are spying on very boring people and there is no subtlety at all! Severely over hyped and pretentious! Very poorly programmed and NOT optimized...This little visual novel uses about 1.2GB of memory and takes forever to load a game (80 secs). In fact, upon loading, its fake browser acts like a 14.4k modem. All this game does is display images and text, so I cannot believe it takes as long as it does to load and uses THIS much memory. I have built complicated business analytic solutions which process terabytes of data use less memory.
