Her Story – A Detective Simulator


Her Story is a game by Sam Barlow, creator of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle. It’s a kind of detective simulator. It is worth noting that at the time of writing the game has only English language with subtitles, it means that if you do not know the language at a fairly good level, you will not be able to fully enter into the gameplay and story.

You have to watch the video material from the interrogation of some woman. She says that her husband was gone. In the story, you have gained access to the old database that contains fragments of interrogation videos. You have to collect all of the video clips into one to get the full picture of what happened. The game has no particular ending, you just need to understand what has happened, who all these people, where it all happened, and so on. Unfortunately order of is unknown. We will actively use the database search using keywords, but unfortunately the search engine gives us only five clips in one tag. As a result, we have to pick up new tags based on the information received from the scanned fragments.

Her Story

It should be noted that the records present a wonderful actress and singer from Joe Gideon and the Shark. With this, the gameplay is really feels like for the role of a detective, because we will be watching a game of the real actress, for her emotions, movements and behavior. As a result, we can say that Sam Barlow managed to create something new in the genre of detective. Perhaps due to the success of the game in the near future we will be able to see the similar projects.
