Inspired by the rise of fake news, social media echo chambers,
and the displacement of truth, Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the
second–darker–season of the award-winning surveillance thriller,
Orwell. With the power to both uncover and play with “the truth”,
you must decide for yourself how far you will go in the service of
your country and whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is
strength.

Inducted into “The Office”–a top-secret department of the
government’s Orwell security program–you’ll take on the role of an
investigative agent during a time when civil unrest threatens to
become a major political crisis between the Nation and neighboring
country Parges.

Reporting directly to Orwell adviser, Ampleford, you‘re tasked with
uncovering the truth behind the escalating political tension, and
delving deep into the lives of Raban Vhart, editor of The People’s
Voice and self-proclaimed guardian of truth, his wife, Karen, and
his brother, Illya, to uncover their potential involvement.

To assist you in your task, you will be given new tools and
mechanics that provide opportunities to control and impact the
narrative. A new “time of day” system puts you in time-sensitive
situations, making who you chose to investigate and when, more
important than ever. You can also research more widely and dig
deeper into citizen’s lives, gathering additional information to
influence the way events are reported and perceived by the
public.

FEATURES:

Orwell and join a top-secret department of agents known as “The
Office” during a time of civil unrest and political tension.

it unfolds.

Praise for Orwell:

data being misinterpreted.” – GameSpot

watching” – Rock Paper Shotgun
