"Her Story is one of the most entrancing experiences you can hope to find on
9/10, Pocket Gamer

"It’s a murder case where you’re in the detective’s chair, a mystery
where you make the running, and an engrossing experience from start to
finish. With this we should consign the term “interactive movie” to

pictures. Her Story points to the future"
5/5, The Guardian

Her Story is a fresh take on the police procedural from Sam Barlow, creator
of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle.

Playing like an interactive true crime documentary, the game lets you go
hands on with a police database full of live action video footage. It stars
Viva Seifert, actress and one half of the band Joe Gideon and the Shark.

"Her Story is a beautiful amalgam of the cinema and video game formats... a
remarkable achievement..."

How does it work?

Her Story sits you in front of a mothballed desktop computer and logs you
into a police database. Search through hundreds of video clips that cover
seven interviews from 1994 in which a British woman is interviewed about her
missing husband. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips
where she speaks those words and piece together her story.

Unlike anything you've played before, Her Story is an involving and moving
experience. One that asks you to listen.
