We’d love to tell you more about Sam Barlow’s latest game, but it’s all heavily redacted.
Here’s an interesting one: it’s exactly five years to the day that Sam Barlow launched Her Story. The game was universally acclaimed and, after we’d all forgotten about them, simultaneously brought back FMV games and proved they didn’t have to be rubbish.
Now, half a decade on – and with the smash hit Telling Lies also under his belt – Barlow is teasing his latest project. And “teasing” is the right word. We don’t even know what it’s called.
The game is available to wishlist right now on Steam and is known simply as “Project A███████”. Yes, those redactions are Barlow’s, not ours.
The game’s description is similarly intriguing:
“██████████ new ███████ Sam Barlow ██ Half Mermaid █████████████ is ███████ ██████████ cinema ██ death.”
And the teaser videos? They’re very unsettling indeed.
We know next to nothing about this game, or when it will release, but given its provenance? It’s definitely one to watch.
