About This Game

 Inspired by the rise of fake news, social media echo chambers, and the displacement of truth, Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the second–darker–season of the award-winning surveillance thriller, Orwell.

Inducted into “The Office”–a top-secret department of the government’s Orwell security program–you’ll take on the role of an investigative agent during a time when civil unrest threatens a major political crisis between the Nation and neighboring country Parges.

Reporting directly to newly appointed Orwell advisor, Ampleford, you‘re tasked with uncovering the truth behind the escalating political tension, and delving deep into the lives of Raban Vhart,.

To assist you in your task, you will be given new tools and mechanics that provide opportunities to control and impact the narrative.
