Game description

Big Brother has arrived - and it's you. Investigate the lives of citizens to find those responsible for a series of terror attacks. Information from the internet, personal communications and private files are all accessible to you. But, be warned, the information you supply will have consequences...

Orwell is a new governmental security program that has the power to survey the online presence of every person in The Nation. It can monitor all personal communications and access any computer. To preserve the privacy of citizens, human researchers examine the data Orwell finds and decide which pieces of information should be passed on to the security forces, and which should be rejected.

Selected from thousands of candidates, you are Orwell's first human researcher. And when a terror attack rocks the Nation's capital city of Bonton, Orwell, and you, are immediately put to the test. Starting with a single person of interest, you'll help the security forces build out and profile a network of potential culprits.

But are these people really terrorists? What does the information you reveal to Orwell say about them? What if you find out things about them that not even their loved ones know? What is the real price of maintaining the security that the Nation is yearning for?


Key Features:

Investigate the digital lives of citizens. 
Search web pages, scour through social media posts, dating site profiles, news articles and blogs to find those responsible for a series of terror attacks.

Invade the private lives of suspects. 
Listen in on chat communications, read personal emails, hack PCs, pull medical files, make connections. Find the information you need to know.

Determine the relevance of information. 
Only the information you provide will be seen by the security forces and acted upon. You decide what gets seen and what does not, influencing how the suspects will be perceived.

Secure the freedom of the Nation. 
Find the terrorists so the citizens of the Nation can sleep safe, knowing Orwell is watching over them.

MATURE CONTENT WARNING
Please note, Orwell includes mature language at multiple points throughout the game as well as mature themes and is not suitable for younger players.

Interesting

Orwell is a game about investigating other people's online persona, in order, to fight crime. It sounds morally grey at best, but in truth, you don't actually have much more power then a private citizen would, since with the exception of their chat, you can monitor these things on anyone in real life, if they let you, and most people do. Anyway, about the game. The whole thing is played through a virtual program called Orwell, which let's you monitor the various social media sites, or at least their fictional version, and collect clues about the suspects. Some clues are fake, and some are contradicting, so you have to think, and make decisions, what o report, and what to leave out. At first glance, the game seems to hold your hand, but actually, quite a lot depends on how you decide, and may very well send an innocent person to prison if you chose wrong(or right, if that's your goal, there's an achievement for it). The game is medium length. You can complete it in about 10 hours. 15 max, if you're a slow reader. For an entertaining game, i think this is rather cheap, and i recommend it for anyone, who likes Text based adventures.

Spy on your citizens!

In Orwell you play as an investigator that spies on all your citizens to find out if someone has commited any crimes.There are no limits on how you can spy on them;look at their search history,their social media or set up cameras! The possibilities are endless and so is the fun.There are also a couple of easter eggs that you can find if you're observant enough and have the patience.
