Playing Detective In – Her Story

herstory

A compelling who done it murder mystery that will keep you guessing even after it is over.

Hannah Smith’s husband is missing and suspected to have been murdered. But who murdered him? Your only clues come to you in video clips of Hannah’s interview with the police and you must search through them in order to piece the story together for yourself.

It’s hard to talk about this game without giving too much of it away but I’m going to keep it spoiler free.. I stayed away from this game for a while because it didn’t seem like it had much going for it. A detective story that you have to search through video clips? Sounded kind of boring to be honest but once I started playing it I was hooked. Four hours later I had “finished” the game but found that it wasn’t truly over.

The game is still going on in my head. Who really did it and why are questions the game doesn’t directly answer. The clips keep going back and forth in my mind and I keep rethinking each of them. The game is powerful and compelling just with its story and should not be overlooked just because of the simplicity of its gameplay.
