Big Brother has arrived – and it’s you | Osmotic Studios. August 9, 2016, 0 thoughts We have been working in silence since we first presented our studio debut project Orwell to you in June 2015. Today, we are proud to present our massive progress since then and finally announce that Orwell will be released in late 2016. With the support of the awesome guys from Surprise Attack Games, who are now working together with us as a publisher for the game, we are delighted to present the official trailer for Orwell: Big Brother has arrived – and it’s you. Orwell is a new governmental security program that has the power to survey the online presence of every person in The Nation.

Selected from thousands of candidates, you are Orwell’s first human researcher. But are these people really terrorists? Investigate the digital lives of citizens. Invade the private lives of suspects. Determine the relevance of information. Secure the freedom of the Nation. Find the game on Steam:

The growl of passing trucks, disembodied voices and the occasional blare of a car horn is disorientating, and the urge to find a wall and shuffle along overwhelms me.
