Telling Lies Reviews - Captivating Story From Creator of Her Story

The first reviews of Telling Lies, an unusual FMV adventure game from Sam Barlow, appeared in the Internet. The latest work from the creator of Her Story and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories has met with very positive reception.

  • Creator: Sam Barlow;
  • Publisher: Annapurna Interactive;
  • Genre: FMV adventure game;
  • Platforms: PC, iOS;
  • Release date: August 23, 2019

Sam Barlow returns with a new, unusual FMV (Full Motion Video - a term used to describe games using scenes with real actors) adventure game. After the warm reception of Her Story in 2015, from tomorrow, owners of PCs and iOS mobile devices will be able to play Telling Lies - an interactive psychological thriller with Logan Marshall-Green (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Prometheus), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Dark Phoenix), Kerry Bishé (Operation Argo, Narcos) and Angela Sarafyan (Westworld) in the main roles. The only question is whether Barlow managed to keep his form and create a title at the level of its predecessor. According to the first reviews that appeared on the web, yes, he has.

Four stories, one mystery.

On Metacritic, the PC version of Telling Lies can boast an average score of 84/100. Critics praise above all the atmospheric, addictive story, more complicated than in Her Story, with well-written characters and original narration. Actors who created credible heroes also did very well. On the other hand, many reviewers point out that the title does not fully realize its interactive potential and there are a few frustrating moments where you can get lost.
