Big Brother has arrived - and it’s you. Rediscover this award-winning game on iOS: touch mechanics add tactile control for fluid gameplay.
Investigate the lives of citizens to find those responsible for a series of terror attacks. Information from the internet, personal communications and private files are all accessible to you. But, be warned, the information you supply will have consequences…
Orwell is a new governmental security program that has the power to survey the online presence of every person in The Nation. It can monitor all personal communications and access any computer. To preserve the privacy of citizens, human researchers examine the data Orwell finds and decide which pieces of information should be passed on to the security forces, and which should be rejected.
Selected from thousands of candidates, you are Orwell’s first human researcher. And when a terror attack rocks the Nation’s capital city of Bonton, Orwell, and you, are immediately put to the test. Starting with a single person of interest, you'll help the security forces build out and profile a network of potential culprits.
But are these people really terrorists? What does the information you reveal to Orwell say about them? What if you find out things about them that not even their loved ones know? What is the real price of maintaining the security that the Nation is yearning for?

Ratings and Reviews
I wasn’t sure what the game would be like, but the description turned out to be accurate. I was initially concerned that some of the information would be impossible to find, it’s not. It’s literally a game where you use information online(and bank accounts, mail intercepts etc) to track down terrorists. It’s exciting, you will feel exuberant when you prevent death, but you’ll also sympathize with characters( good, bad snd neutral) for a variety of reasons. It’s not real, but it could be. I am obsessed with crime tv/games and I can’t put this game down. When I finish it I will be sad, that’s the only problem. I am an information management professional with a library degree, and I wish that this was my job instead of being a librarian. Combing through information with the assistance of a partner(Symes) is fun and you’re not alone. I have a feeling that a twist is coming soon. I’ll update the review when I win it. If you have any interest in crime investigation buy the game. It’s worth more than $5!
This app is truly so amazing! The art style immediately grabbed my attention, but I was a bit on the edge about paying $5 for it. Let me tell you, it is so worth it. I would price this game at $15 based on what I’ve played so far; and I’m only on day two. The game guides you along smoothly as you play, while still giving you a very important role to uphold. Your actions are vital to this story. The only reason I would suggest to not download this game is because of its heavy and dark topic and plot. Stopping terrorists is the whole gameplay. So if you aren’t comfortable with that, I wouldn’t suggest playing this. But in all other aspects, this is one of the best games I’ve played. Period.
So much better than expected
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this game is so unique and amazing and thought provoking and FUN. I finished it in three days because I couldn’t put it down, and I was FULLY engaged the entire time. I loved the style, the story and the way the player interacts with the story actually makes sense. I’ve played $30 console games that aren’t half as entertaining as this $5.00 game! Now I’m off to see if the internet knows of any games like this one... YOU should just play it.
