A political crisis has arisen across borders, threatening to plunge neighbouring Parges into violent civil unrest and embarrass the ruling Party of the Nation. Given the power to both uncover and fabricate "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. Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the second season of the award winning surveillance thriller - Orwell. It will release as a weekly episodic series and will introduce new mechanics and features to the series, providing players with greater agency to direct their investigation and even the power to use information they gather to influence public opinion. The story takes place in parallel to the events of the first season and reveals a darker, more secret side to the Orwell program.Praise for Orwell: “Grabs the problem of how we balance our own liberty and our safety and turns it into a thrilling adventure.” – Polygon “In an age where so much personal information is willingly released by so many, Orwell brilliantly explores the implications of this data being misinterpreted.” – GameSpot "A harrowing look into a reality where Big Brother is always watching" - Rock Paper Shotgun

Orwell: Ignorance is Strength reviews and comments

Translated by

The Game starts with a Test of whether you are suitable for Orwell, although it doesn't matter what you answer, the Secret agent aunt will take you under her Wing. The Game is really only suitable for People who speak English well to very well or can understand because you are actually just reading all the Time. The Story is not very long but always exciting, even if I had to look for Help on the Internet twice, as there are a few hard Nuts to crack.

Just awesome how this game is set up during the same three days as the prequel. Even though I can choose and feel like I am having an impact on current events, I am constantly staying "on-track" with the Bonton bombings events. Thats how interactive literature should be! Please make more cases and maybe a port for mobile devices? :D EDIT: And lets not forget the very well integrated question about the impact of social media in todays society. You cant help but to think about it and come up with your very own conclusion.

A Thriller in Blockbuster quality The Orwell franchise is one of the most interesting Rows I've ever played. After playing through what good books create, it leaves behind what good Books create. She leaves one with many Thoughts, which can be arranged during the Stretch to determine that none of the decisions were really easy. Orwell pulls through his Graphic Style, creating a world of her own. Think you really know The Nation and the political Situation is downright tangible. Anyone who wants to play a Game where you think afterwards that Computer Games are a valuable and unique Medium is right here. I thought this at least and now I think Season 3 is about to be released!

Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is just a fantastic Game. Even though his Predecessor impressed me more, this Game is still a very good Piece of Art. Because This Word describes the Video Game very well, because it shows very well the Pitfalls of Propaganda, Hate-Speech and fake news. The Graphics are very simple and nothing Special, which probably also makes This Game Timeless. The Music is quite good, but the Predecessor has used You a little better. I should point out one thing: If you are not a great Friend of Heavily text-heavy Games, you will probably not enjoy it here. Even though there are now tons of Phone Conversations that underscore what'S happening well, there are still no Video Sequences. Furthermore, one should definitely be proficient in the English Language, as there is no German Language edition. The Atmosphere is very dense, but the Extremes are missing, as you know Them from its Predecessor. The Story mixes Topics that are currently very relevant, such as Refugees and fake news. All in All: A really good Game that Encourages every Person to deal with the Subject of Truth or perceived Truth.
