Interrogation: You will be deceived Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows PC)
Interrogation: You will be deceived has players solving complex conversational puzzles. While managing your own investigative team. Every squad member has their own skills. Therefore you must learn how to use these to stop The Liberation Front’s next attack. With a short budget available.
The next attack drawing ever nearer. A player will have to make some hard choices to save the city.
The game has a rather gritty noir art style and animation. This also comes from a cast of over 40 actors. Developer Critique Gaming has carefully altered the actions of each actor. Creating an eye catching black and white style. Using thousands of rotoscoped photos to make every character. So that each interaction is as realistic and tense as possible.
Each session of questioning is also unique. Since this requires a different approach and tactic. Seeing you want to ensure that suspects reveal their secrets. Interrogation has you learn the background and motif of each person. Which is key for players to use an effective approach. Such as different methods of intimidation, guile or empathy. This can achieve the required result.
But due note, there is no typical solution. So if you are not progressing in your questioning. Then resort to ‘enhanced interrogation’ techniques. But there are further obstacles when going down this path.
- Psychologically manipulate suspects to stop the Liberation Front’s next attack
- Manage a team and resources. While you uphold the police force’s reputation
- Gritty, visually striking noir art-style. All based on thousands of photos from real actors
- Play your own style with branching paths leading to multiple endings
- Atmospheric music to increase the growing tension
