An addendum to what's been said about Her Story
so far - Sam Barlow is also the creator of the famous-in-a-very-small-niche interactive fiction title "Aisle
," in which you get one and only one move. Playable online here
Aisle was one of the first of the "one move" genre, a kind of minimalist-mechanics experiment that seems to have gotten a visual upgrade here. Like Her Story
, one is really exploring a moment in time by playing it out in different ways, though the "moment" in Her Story
is rather longer. The idea of taking an incident and turning it this way and that to affect the way it's viewed, though, seems to be a favorite of his. (He's also worked on Silent Hill: Origins
and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
, both of which also have a bit of this element in them).
