"Her Story is one of the most entrancing experiences you can hope to find on mobile"
9/10, Pocket Gamer

"It’s a murder case where you’re in the detective’s chair, a mystery where you make the running, and an engrossing experience from start to finish. With this we should consign the term “interactive movie” to history’s dustbin, because movies can’t dream of offering audiences a narrative structure as intimate and involving as this: they’re just moving pictures. Her Story points to the future" 5/5, The Guardian

Her Story is the critically acclaimed mystery game from Sam Barlow. Playing like an interactive true crime documentary, the game lets you go hands on with a police database full of live action video footage. It stars Viva Seifert, actress and one half of the band Joe Gideon and the Shark.

How does it work?

Her Story sits you in front of a mothballed desktop computer and logs you into a police database. Search through hundreds of video clips that cover seven interviews from 1994 in which a British woman is interviewed about her missing husband. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips where she speaks those words and piece together her story.

"Her Story is a beautiful amalgam of the cinema and video game formats... a remarkable achievement..." 90, The Washington Post

"Profound, gripping live-action drama… sure to be discussed for years to come" 5/5, Digital Spy

Unlike anything youve played before, Her Story is an involving and moving experience. One that asks you to listen.

Pros and cons of Her Story app for iPhone and iPad

Her Story app good for

A truly enjoyable game, it feels like the old days of video game with its live action video, but it is so well-done! The actress is really great and my wife and I are really into this story that allows us to play together as real detectives!!
Quite a compelling experience, as well as an original one. Just give it a try, you wont regret it.
This game is very addictive. I couldnt stop playing. But why isnt my former not published?
You feel like an actual detective... You start the game knowing nothing and being like WTF... The more you play, the more the story unfolds and the more confusing the game gets. Its the ultimate detective role play! Great game!!!!
Very unique game. Really absorbing, and with a "plot" with enough twists and ambiguity to really make you think. Even though the plot is revealed in a totally different way from a linear story. Very well acted. It is a short game- but a very memorable one.
Brilliant gameplay and amazing theme. More than 2 hours of engaging content . The only problem I found is the ability to search for the final story.

Some bad moments

all the game is upside down ( I have a rigid flip cover) Is there a solution. Thank you for your help!
Could be a very interesting game, if there something more to do then watch videos.
Dont know why all the good reviews... Nothing but short video clips to watch, and then no real conclusion to the end of the story. Wasted time that I cant have back.
I wanted to like this game but in the end there is no real payoff. So if you are interested in what really happens, you wont be finding out. Spending all that time with the videos for nothing was sort of a waste of time.
Boring and has no ending leaving you confused! Dont waste your money on this because there is no reason to pay for such a stupid "game"!!
this game is hard very hard and it is crap all you do I watch videos 4 videos and do nothing(REFUND)
