About the Game
Step into the shoes of a government official in a top-secret department of the Orwell surveillance program. A political crisis has arisen across borders, threatening to plunge neighbouring Parges into violent civil unrest and embarrass the ruling Party of the Nation. Given the power to both uncover and fabricate "the truth", you must decide for yourself how far you will go in the service of your country and whether the truth is sacred or ignorance is strength.
Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the second season of the award winning surveillance thriller – Orwell. It will release as a weekly episodic series and will introduce new mechanics and features to the series, providing players with greater agency to direct their investigation and even the power to use information they gather to influence public opinion. The story takes place in parallel to the events of the first season and reveals a darker, more secret side to the Orwell program.
