Osmotic Studios today announced that its second season of the psychological thriller Orwell will be released soon with a new story to tackle. Orwell: Ignorance is Strength focuses to the fake news narrative, tasking players to explore power and democracy in a post-truth world.
Orwell: Ignorance is Strength places the player in the shoes of a government official in a top-secret department of the Orwell program. A political crisis has arisen across borders, threatening to plunge The Nation and Parges into violent civil unrest. Given the power to both uncover and fabricate “the truth”, the player must decide for themselves how far they will go in the service of their country and whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is strength.
Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is slated to be released in weekly episodes later this year on PC, Mac, and Linux. Osmotic Studios has released a trailer for the game, which you can view above.
