Orwell: Ignorance is Strength
Published by: Surprise Attack (now known as Fellow Traveller)
Developed by: Osmotic Studios
“Inspired by the rise of fake news, social media echo chambers, and the displacement of truth, Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the second–darker–season of the award-winning surveillance thriller, Orwell. With the power to both uncover and play with “the truth”, you must decide for yourself how far you will go in the service of your country and whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is strength.
Inducted into ‘The Office’ — a top-secret department of the government’s Orwell security program–you’ll take on the role of an investigative agent during a time when civil unrest threatens to become a major political crisis between the Nation and neighboring country Parges.
Reporting directly to Orwell adviser, Ampleford, you‘re tasked with uncovering the truth behind the escalating political tension, and delving deep into the lives of Raban Vhart, editor of The People’s Voice and self-proclaimed guardian of truth, his wife, Karen, and his brother, Illya, to uncover their potential involvement.
To assist you in your task, you will be given new tools and mechanics that provide opportunities to control and impact the narrative. A new ‘time of day’ system puts you in time-sensitive situations, making who you chose to investigate and when, more important than ever. You can also research more widely and dig deeper into citizen’s lives, gathering additional information to influence the way events are reported and perceived by the public”.Humble
