A film/game hybrid for PC and iPad in which everyone lies to you, by indie developer Tim Follin

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.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
