Orwell: Ignorance is Strength Episode 1 OUT NOW!

Agents,

the time has come to return to work. The Nation is in crisis and needs you now more than ever.

Episode 1: Thesis of Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is now available on Steam, GOG and Humble Store.

Set parallel to the events of the original game, Orwell: Ignorance is Strength places players in the shoes of a government official recruited to “The Office”, a top-secret department of the Orwell program. Through surveillance of phone calls, messages, websites, computers and mobile phones, the player chooses what information is added to the Orwell system and what is not, influencing how characters are perceived and how the story unfolds.

In season two, the player has access to an enhanced build of Orwell, able to go further and influence what information goes out to the public. Given the power to both uncover and fabricate “the truth”, players will ultimately have to decide whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is strength.

 

We hope you’ll enjoy playing Orwell: Ignorance is Strength!

Cheers
The Osmotic Studios Team

Announcing Season Two of Orwell — Orwell: Ignorance is Strength

Investigators,

you are going to be needed once again. Today we are very excited to finally share with you what we’ve been working on for the recent months: The second season of Orwell, “Orwell: Ignorance is Strength.”

Inspired by the rise of fake news, the social media echo chamber and the death of “truth”–Orwell: Ignorance is Strength places the player in the shoes of a government official in a top-secret department of the Orwell program. A political crisis has arisen across borders, threatening to plunge The Nation and Parges into violent civil unrest.

Given the power to both uncover and fabricate “the truth”, the player must decide for themselves how far they will go in the service of their country and whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is strength.

The fact that we are able to produce a second season is due to the tremendous success of the first one that all of you who played Orwell made possible! Thank you for that!

We hope, you stay tuned and follow us on our journey to complete and release the game. Over the following weeks we’re going to tell you more about Orwell: Ignorance is Strength and the new features (yes, it does have a couple of them in fact!) it is going to introduce.

You can wishlist the game on Steam over here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/63306

Stay truthful!
