About Orwell Game:

The game named after author George Orwell. It’s about state surveillance set in a fictional country called The Nation.
 
The country is led bymodern-day authoritarian government is known as The Party in the capital of Bonton.
 
In 2012, the Party passed the Safety Bill, a law expanding the government’s ability to spy on its citizens in the name of national security.
 
As part of the bill, the Ministry of Security commissioned a covert surveillance system codenamed Demiurge (later renamed Orwell).
 
Orwell allows investigations into the private communications of people of interest but doesn’t allow anyone person full access.
 
Instead, its operation is run by two groups:
Investigators, persons outside of the Nation working for the government who search through the communication of target persons and
upload items of interest (represented as “datachunks”), and
Advisors, people inside of the Nation who use the received data chunks to determine the course of action and to recommend actions to the authorities.
 
The player takes the role of an Orwell investigator, selected to use the system.
