Her Story, from developer Sam Barlow, was a huge hit when it came out on iOS in 2015. And now Android owners finally get a chance to see what all the fuss is about.
We put the game on our list of the top 50 games of 2015 and gave it an 8.5 upon release writing, “Her Story is an intriguing experimentation in game narrative. Its vastly different approach to telling a complex story is reason alone to play it,” in our review. In the game, players watch video clips from an interview with a woman and type in key words to unlock more interview clips in order to piece together a mystery.
I’m surprised it took this long for Her Story to make it to a new platform, but Sam Barlow is the epitome of a small development team, so the delay can certainly be forgiven. In any case, it’s good that a new audience will get a chance to experience this compelling mystery.
