Episode One - The Clocks were Striking Thirteen
In this episode, the player is recruited into the Orwell program and, following a terrorist attack, is given their first target to investigate. Cassandra Watergate is a young woman with a criminal record who was spotted by surveillance cameras at the site of the bombing. Digging into her social media, chat messages and online presence, the player starts to uncover a web of connections and a mysterious group who might be involved in the attack.
Please note, Episode One is the opening of the game and introduces the main mechanics and the way the game works. As a result this episode is a bit more guided and directed than the rest of the game.
