Today, I’m going to be recommending a game that takes a look at a world in which the government is watching you through your soicla media and internet use. Let’s take a look at this modern day 1984 inspired game!
In Orwell: Keeping An Eye On You, you have recently started a new job- spying on civilians for the government. You do this by using a programme called Orwell, which allows you to observe any individuals activity on a computer. That’s right, in Orwell, you are Big Brother.
Unfortunately for you, a terrorist attack on your first day at the job means you are plunged straight into a conspiracy with serious political and moral ramifications. As you dive further into peoples’ lives to uncover the truth, the game will leave you questioning, how far should a government invade someone’s personal life in order to keep its people safe?
Orwell: Keeping An Eye On You is not an overly long game but for the story and message its trying to tell, it the perfect length for it. I personally love when a game gives you tough moral choices and makes you question ethics through its gameplay. So, if you are looking for a short but unique experience that George Orwell would have approved of, then I highly recommend you play Orwell: Keeping An Eye On You.
