During the Her Story panel at GDC, creator Sam Barlow showed off a slide that collected an assortment of fan photos. No, they weren’t photos of the fans themselves, rather, these were pictures every Her Story fan understands: the notes taken while playing. Everyone resolves to playing with a pen and paper to keep track of the mystery in the game and fans definitely want Barlow to know this.
He said that he still gets tons of photos like these. It’s a testament to a game’s interesting mechanics that gamers will show off photos of their detective work in droves to the developer. Most notably, Barlow attributes Her Story’s success to how much it relies on a player’s imagination. Recently, Her Story 2 was announced and it was revealed there would be no relation to the original.
