He Said She’ll Say: Her Story 2 Teased

Most of Team RPS spent the end of June hunched over screens, looking confused and tapping away at their keyboards hoping that eventually something would make sense.

Wait for it.

And in the game.

Thank you, thank you.

FMV crime mystery Her Story [official site], which has players watching old police interview footage and trying to figure out what happened, ended up one of our favourite games of 2015. Good stuff! And good news: creator Sam Barlow has teased the follow-up he’s working on.

Barlow dropped a blurred-out one-page synopsis on Twitter:

You could burn your eyes out trying to see through the blur to the text underneath and uncover the plot’s secrets, but maybe that’s missing the forest for the trees: it’s clearly about looking at documents someone dropped in a puddle. No? No.

Answering questions on the tweeternet, he explained that it’s “no relation story-wise to Her Story” and joked “it’d be rude not to” use live acting.

That’s it. That’s all I have to tell you. Speculate away!

    Being a coder I just couldn’t get HS2. It’s an inconvenience simulator. I know that’s the point, but I couldn’t possibly enjoy simulating myself trying to get anything done in the early 90’s. Perhaps the key to enjoying it was being less technically burdened on a daily basis?

      It’s fine not to like the game but I’m sure absolutely tons of people that are “technically burdened on a daily basis” enjoyed it just fine. I certainly did.

    Maybe this time you’ll just see the questions the cops ask, and never the answers.

    I hope one of those blurred paragraphs says “Find a better voice actor this time!”.

      “And also a writer while you’re at it!”

        Yeah this

        Loved the concept of Her Story, and I’d be happy to play a load more investigative games like it but christ the plot sucked

      Don’t you just mean “actor”?

    Hey, I’m hunched over my screen, looking confused and tapping away at my keyboard, hoping that eventually something will make sense right now.

    If it was a game that was basically identical to the original one just with a new story/new videos I would gladly buy it at launch.

    I figured it out by typing one word into the database. That word was ‘Glasgow’.
