This is a breathtaking masterpiece with a brilliant story! Highly enjoyable and literally captivating!

I’m a Kickstarter backer who found the project to be a cool idea and backed it, and I was positively shocked by how good it turned out to be! Started up the game to try it out, and couldn’t stop playing.

What gives it its glory is the amazing and captivating story and events, and the great voice acting.

This makes the game an emotional adventure… you’ll feel your heart racing at some points, and the creators of this game did a great job of making me (someone who doesn’t feel much) actually feel what the characters I’m interacting with are feeling. (horror, fear, relief, joy, sadness, remorse, security and danger, anger… and most probably hunger)

This review is being written before the conclusion of the game in episode five. I’ve played through the first four episodes a couple times exploring different outcomes, however, as episode five is not out yet I’m not able to comment on the totallity of the story.

The Machine

Orwell has a very close Person of Interest vibe. The government of the fictitious country has obtained a Machine, or System, that surveils the populous gathering information however it does not act on the gathered information. The idea of the game is that the system, aptly named Orwell, isn’t able to decern human subtlety, sarcasim, or deciet. As such, the fictious government has outsourced the task of resolving conflicts in the data, and identifying what is relevant and what is not. You as the player take on this role as an outsider to the country, tasked with sifting through the data that Orwell gives you access to inorder to identify person(s) of interest. This is a role somewhat like Person of Interest’s Harold Finch.
