Sam Barlow, the writer and director of Her Story and Telling Lies, has announced his newest game, and it’s got a very strange title.
“â–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ new â–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ Sam Barlow â–ˆâ–ˆ Half Mermaid â–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ is â–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ â–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ cinema â–ˆâ–ˆ death,” read the description for the game. Then, there are four entries with the dates 1968, 1971, 1999, and 2022. Most of the entries for each year have been redacted. What does it mean? I don’t know. There’s a heat wave happening right now. It’s too hot for this, Sam.
Last year, Barlow did reveal a little about his latest project, which I’m presuming is Project Aâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ. “I’m kind of playing around in that horror, weird fiction space in some ways, which is really exciting to get back into,” he said to MCV/Develop, and even described the upcoming experiment to be “not a traditional video game story.” Telling Lies came to consoles as well as PC, and it’s unclear whether Project Aâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆâ–ˆ will be multiplatform. We’ll keep you in the loop once we know more.
