Inform me lies, inform me sweet tiny lies.
Sam Barlow, the director and writer of Her Story, did a thing really various when he brought out his debut in 2015. Her Story utilizes filmed clips of actors to lead players on a narrative sleuthing hunt.

It was a new way of considering about narrative gameplay at the time and now your boy is at it once again.
Telling Lies utilises video recordings in a comparable style to its predecessor, but sends us off just after an totally various story. It is a non-linear thriller, centred on a stash of secretly recorded video conversations that the player ought to mine for clues. These video conversations star 4 distinctive people who’s lives overlap and intertwine, culminating in “a shocking incidence”. What occurred to these 4, and what lingers inside their private lives.
You are scouring a laptop “loaded with a stolen NSA database” which holds the footage necessary for your investigation, spanning two entire years. On Steam the game describes itself as an “intimate and intense experience”, and judging from the trailer, thats certainly on the nose. In an interview with Eurogamer Barlow described the game as “like Sex, Lies and Videotape meets The Conversation – it is a story of 4 men and women, their relationships and how they messily intertwine in the context of bigger political questions”. It undoubtedly appears like it is going to have a saucy slant, but really how far the game will go is unclear. The mature content material warning is a superior indicator, although.
