Unlike anything you’ve played before, Her Story is an involving and moving experience. A game that asks you to listen. A video game from Sam Barlow, creator of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle, Her Story is a crime fiction game with non-linear storytelling told with live action video footage. It stars Viva Seifert, actress and one half of the band Joe Gideon and the Shark.
