Orwell a story-based game of choices coming to Linux

orwell story-based game of choices coming to linux

The somewhat recent #release Orwell looks like it will make a Linux and Mac debut. Hence the recent Thank You and Update for the #game indicates that we can expect to see native #platform support.

Orwell is a new governmental security program that has the power to survey the online presence of every person in The Nation. Since it can monitor all personal communications and access any computer. To preserve the privacy of citizens. Due to human researchers that examine the data Orwell finds. Then deciding which pieces of information are to pass on to the security forces, and which should not be.

Selected from thousands of candidates, you are Orwell’s first human researcher. Then a terror attack rocks the Nation’s capital city of Boston. Orwell, and you, are immediately put to the test. Starting with a single person of interest, while you help the security forces build out and profile a network of potential culprits.

But are these people really terrorists? Does the information you reveal to Orwell say about them? What if you find out things about them that not even their loved ones know? Is the real price of maintaining the security that the Nation is yearning for?
