If you live for the moment when you first log on and have to reverse-engineer everyone’s posts to figure out what the hell happened, you’d probably love Sam Barlow’s games. The former Silent Hill developer has crafted a niche for himself in mystery games, like Her Story and Telling Lies, in which players must parse archival footage to reconstruct the truth. Barlow’s latest and most ambitious project is Immortality, in which you must uncover the truth behind missing actress Marissa Marcel, whose three films were never released. Co-written by Lost Highway’s Barry Gifford, Immortality promises to be an eerie Hollywoodland thriller when it comes to Xbox and PC July 26.
