Hacker simulator

Orwell - is an indie game and the creation of the German developer Osmotic Studios, which was published by the publishing firm Fellow Traveler. The game was released on October 26, 2016, on Windows, OS X and Linux operating systems. By itself, the game is more a simulator and an adventure. The game reveals the plot of the episodes, from which there is a feeling of viewing the series, in which you yourself take part as the main character.

The story

You are a Big Brother. Technically. In fact, the player has the role of an investigator who has access to CCTV cameras, as well as information on the Internet. And information about people that can be obtained not only in the public domain but also in private. You have to investigate and study information of a different nature, from comments on social networks to private correspondence, deepening into human secrets, where you risk more questions than answers. And most importantly - your choice matters.

1984

Developers managed to convey the atmosphere more and more relevant recently “total surveillance” for people from the state. Affecting differences in behavior with open communication and private conversations, the creators of the game skillfully show what opportunities lie in the identification of terrorists and how the exclusively positive work of the special services goes hand in hand with the direct violation of fundamental human freedoms.

WELL that was an intense game. I'm super impressed with how it all ran (the mechanics were a little confusing at times but like. Persistence is key also the narrative was so good)
Summary: Although the beginning was slow, once you get past ep 2, Orwell is an amazing game. Full of moral and informational dilemmas. Intensive: Orwell puts you, the player into to the position of big brother. You are an investigator with access to everything that you need. You decide what gets put into "The System" (AKA: Orwell) or what gets left out. Your actions or lack there of causes real consequences to the story. The characters develop in a way more like a novel than a game and the ending is (depending on what you have already discovered) quite a plot twist. Although you may have to restart the game at a point (It will be evident, saying what point would spoil the story). All in all, Orwell starts out slowly and builds up to an amazing story with a surprising end. You could spend hours just looking through all of the minute details of the characters lives.

Игра Orwell основана на простом и, пожалуй, очевидном для каждого думающего человека факте: мир сложнее, чем кажется, за тобой следят, тебя контролируют, изучают и всячески используют. Кто-то мягче, кто-то жестче или совсем уж явно — но современный социум не живет личностями, он живет оценкой каждого гражданина как продукта системы. Продукт потребляет и потребляем этой же системой... круговорот продукта в природе! Суть игры совсем не нова. Вопрос был только в подаче, и с ней создатели справились великолепно, сумев переиграть избитую тему с проверенными, но очень свежо зазвучавшими, нотками. Мы играем за агента безопасности, волонтёра, иными словами — за стукача. Отслеживаем неблагонадёжных граждан, влезаем в их профили в социальных сетях, прослушиваем телефонные разговоры, разве что догола не раздеваем, в буквальном смысле. В выдуманном городе выдуманной страны совершен теракт. По ходу процесса виртуального «раздевания» подозреваемых, их друзей и родных, агент выходит на заговор более высокого порядка — и предсказуемо меняется сам. Решения агент принимает единолично, хотя периодически возникает советчик в лице персонального куратора. Весь игровой процесс строится вокруг анализа текста по ключевым словами и аудио-записей. Всё то, что может пригодится, отправляется в банк знаний, оттуда же прокачиваются профили подозреваемых, составляются связи между ними и событиями, в которых они замечены. Несмотря на то, что визуально Orwell выглядит весьма скудно, процесс расследования затягивает не на шутку, а оторваться от игры — особенно под конец — вообще невозможно. Из очевидных минусов: игра полностью на английском, причем на сложном английском.
