‘Her Story’ Creator Sam Barlow’s ‘#WarGames’ Watches You Watching It

#WarGames By: Sam Barlow & Eko Full confession: I watched the original WarGames for the first time after finishing the new #WarGames series it inspired.

“Her Story” Fans Are In For a Treat If the Game Sells 1 Million Copies

Her Story By: Sam Barlow **Note: If you haven't already finished playing "Her Story," turn back now. There are SPOILERS ahead!** I've recently been interviewing creator Sam Barlow and actress Viva Seifert about the full-motion video (FMV) murder mystery game Her Story.

Interrogating “Her Story” Creator Sam Barlow and Actress Viva Seifert (Interview)

Her Story By: Sam Barlow As anyone who's been following me here or on Twitter for the last few weeks might have noticed, I've been a bit obsessed with the game "Her Story."
