Sam Barlow’s Anticipated ‘Her Story’ Successor, ‘Telling Lies,’ Releases August 23rd (Preview Inside)

Telling Lies By: Sam Barlow / Annapurna Interactive Sam Barlow's Her Story is one of my favorite video games, perhaps the one that's stuck with me the most. I clearly remember back in 2015, getting it a few days ahead of release and thinking I would just play for a little bit and then get back to cleaning my apartment.

Games for Change Festival 2016: Breaking Down Walls

I recently had the privilege of attending the 13th annual Games for Change Festival here in New York City. At the same time that the United Kingdom gave into fear-mongering and voted to break off from the European Union, I was listening to game developers talk about how they're reaching people in a positive way through their creations.
