About

There is a small little genre of interactive movies in the game industry, but it seems that not only Quantic Dream makes this type of games. Her Story also is an interactive movie video game which is written and directed by Sam Barlow. Her Story is about a man who is missing and the player has to focus on searching through databases of various video clips from police interviews with missing man’s wife Hannah Smith, in order to solve a case. Her Story is the first game made by Sam Barlow since his departure from Climax Studios. He wanted to create a game which focuses on story. He decided to use live action footage and created a police procedural game. In order to make it as much realistic as possible, Barlow watched lots of real police interviews, by doing so he discovered that there is a lot of ambiguity in those files and he wanted to incorporate that into the game as well. The game was praised because of its original narrative, character performance and interesting gameplay mechanics.

Her Story reviews and comments

I think the Idea for this Game is great and actually didn't expect much more than an "old Case" unspectacular to solve the Puzzle. But the fact that the Game then proceeding completely passively at the End disappointed me. I expected more than just watching a few Video Clips. Sure, you have to use the right Keywords to unlock certain Videos. But that's also all that makes a Game out of a Collection of Videos. And what's even more disappointing. In the End, you don't even get a satisfying Answer to all the Questions that shoot through your Head during the Game. Nice Idea but too passive for me to go through as a Game.

It was an Interesting Story. First of All, you have to say that this is not a Proper game, but rather a Film (.-forseation?) Puzzles. One learns the Stories of the Women, whom one can put at will, because You have to find the next videos by stichwords, by white people that the women have given before In their Video commentary. You can also search for any words at will, but ultimately it doesn't lead to anything at all, as it's not the sense of such a Game. History was short, and to get on with some in a bit desperate, it was ultimately worth it. And would probably play it through again, because I threw everything through the first time, and mysterious white had already finished the game. Anyway. Exciting, good story 10/10 * note-You speak in the videos normal English, with English subtitles. So only worthwhile who you have enough English skills.

I wanted to like that game and I had appreciated it more if the game didn't introduce itself so much. The whole game is more or less out of the fact that you should follow some twenty different spr, and each sprl ends in one or more clips from the last interview. The first spurt I ended up p gave the answer how and where the dog died. It wasn't about the fact that I just wrote something and ended up by chance, but I just ran one of the many sprints that the game gave me. And the game was really not designed to have what it used to be, say all the must from the rest of the game. For the game, it is difficult to build up tension for some other n exactly how and no one died. The absolute first thing you ask for is two different mainsprings that then branch out into several different sprints, they are the spouse's name and a man something. If you want to be done, do not freeze more or less the whole game by reaching the wrong sprite, with the spouse's name. Interesting concept, storyline and performance quite weak. The fun game I think is good.
Best detective game out there. You really think here, make guesses and assumptions. Than try to prove them with keyword searches. And with each video you learn something new. Which opens the door to new conclusions.

And this may sound funny but it plays like a very realistic game. You can imagine yourself finding a bunch of old VHS tapes and trying to figure out what's the matter there.
«Time-tested»
«That ending!»
