So the story-driven, choice-based singleplayer Orwell has a release on Linux and Mac. While the news may not be a surprise, however that native release certainly is a pleasure to see.

“We have done some limited testing with OS X and Ubuntu. And so far all of our results have been great. While that doesn’t mean you will not find issues at home; with such a varying landscape of operating systems and hardware configurations, we are expecting some of you to have issues. We have opened up sticky threads for both Mac and Linux. Please put any issues you find in there with as much information as possible, and we will aim to help you as quickly as we can”

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. While trying to preserve the privacy of citizens. Human researchers examine the data Orwell finds and decide which pieces of information should pass on to the security forces. And which should they should reject.

And when a terror attack rocks the Nation’s capital city of Bonton, Orwell, and you, are immediately put to the test.
