Orwell, the award-winning dystopian snoop simulator, is finally out on Android after successful spells on PC and iOS.
Initially released in 2016, Orwell is an episodic adventure that sees you hunting down the perpetrators of a series of terrorist attacks by snooping on the private data of citizens. The title is a reference both to 1984 author George Orwell, and the sinister software your character uses in the game.
Orwell – the program, not the dead guy – can monitor the comms and dive into the data of everybody who lives in The Nation. Nothing is beyond the software’s reach, so it’s up to you, as a researcher, to decide which information to pass along to the security forces.
There are difficult decisions to make, involving privacy, security, and human dignity. Inevitably, adult themes abound in this polished, provocative interactive satire of the increasingly surveilled world in which we find ourselves.
You can download Orwell for $4.99 right now on Google Play. Your purchase will be tracked.
