Contradiction is an adventure game for PC and iPad that uses 100% live-action video and a unique design to give you the freedom to move around at will, investigate locations, collect evidence and make notes. But the heart of the game is interviewing characters, asking them questions and spotting the lies they tell.
The game also has a horror influence and is filled with tons of interesting, sometimes bizarre, startling and atmospheric mini-scenes that you encounter as you progress.
You play Inspector Jenks, a police detective assigned to the case of a student found drowned in a lake one morning. As you wander around different locations, Jenks makes note of objects you find, unusual things you see, events you witness and information you hear.
You also meet several characters to question about what you've noted. Their replies are noted as a list of bullet points.
But Contradiction is full of liars – and liars always slip up and contradict themselves. The name of the game is to listen to characters’ replies and spot the contradictions!
A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until January 17, 2014.
