Sam Barlow, the creator of Her Story and Telling Lies, has teased a brand new recreation on Twitter. But determining what the expertise is about could also be a thriller recreation in itself.

On Wednesday, Barlow tweeted celebrating the 5 yr anniversary of Her Story, in addition to mentioning that followers may Wishlist his latest recreation on Steam proper now. A visit to the game’s Steam page, nonetheless, reveals that almost every thing about it’s a thriller for the time being, together with the title. At first, the sport appears to be referred to as Project A, with a number of letters after the A hidden from view. A click on on its community page reveals that its title could be Project Ambrosia, however who is aware of if that’s a working title or what the sport’s title will ultimately be.

The recreation’s Steam description reads, “██████████ new ███████ Sam Barlow ██ Half Mermaid █████████████ is ███████ ██████████ cinema ██ death.”

The remainder of the small print aren’t rather more clear both. The Steam description for the sport has big sections hidden from view, as if they’re confidential data. What we are able to see is that the sport is developed by Sam Barlow, in addition to “Half Mermaid.” There are additionally descriptions that notice totally different time durations. The first paragraph is for 1968, with “Gothic” as the one un-obscured phrase; then 1971, with “NYC;” then 1999 with “pop star;” and 2022 with “Barlow,” “custodian,” and “concordance.” Altogether, it’s laborious to get a lot of something from these hints.
