Description

A Video Game About Private Conversations

An investigative thriller game with non-linear storytelling, Telling Lies revolves around a cache of secretly recorded video conversations. Starring Logan Marshall-Green, Alexandra Shipp, Kerry Bishé, Angela Sarafyan and directed by Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.

How does it work?

Telling Lies sits you in front of an anonymous laptop loaded with a stolen NSA database full of footage. The footage covers two years in the intimate lives of four people whose stories are linked by a shocking incident. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips where those words are spoken and piece together your story.

Unlike anything you've played before, Telling Lies is an intimate and intense experience. A game where you decide the truth.

Great idea

Loved the concept of this and it kept me engaged for a couple of days until i realised there was actually no point in continuing further once you have a good idea of how the story goes. There is achievements or unlocks. No reward for your hard detective work. Shame because it stops my will to go further now i know the end.

Problem with text not syncing

A number of times I’ve had to come out of clips and try and scrub to get the subtitles to move on from the search term, apart from that I’m loving the game. A double tap to rewind to the start of the clip would be welcome.

This is a game changing use of FMV, Her Story was brilliant but this takes it up to another level, using proper actors and a variety of cameras and settings make you feel like you’re the detective trying to unpick the truth, like Big Little Lies but you’re in the driving seat - please fix those niggling issues. I can’t help wonder if the bug in the patience game has some relevance, I bet it does - bravo team!

A refreshing change

It may seem a little pricey but in fact it’s actually really good value for the amount of entertainment it provides and offers a refreshing change to most current games that purport to be free while then preventing progress unless you’re happy to be milked for extra cash every update/month, etc.
The game play is great and the characters are genuinely intriguing. You can tell the developers have really thought about making this game really different and it works.
Highly recommend!!
