As a game fun­da­men­tally con­cerned with its nar­ra­tive, you’d do well to avoid any dis­cus­sion sur­round­ing Her Story un­til you have seen as much of its tale as you in­tend to see, lest spoil­ers sap away some of the joy of work­ing events out your­self. In this re­gard, Bar­low’s cre­ation is un­com­monly vul­ner­a­ble to the pres­sures of the broad­band age, where ex­changes of care­less words are com­mon­place, co­a­lesced and for­malised into Twit­ter feeds and com­ment threads. Many fo­rum users are re­spect­ful enough to use spoiler tags, but even so ab­sorb­ing too much in­for­ma­tion be­fore­hand will lead your in­ves­ti­ga­tion down in­or­ganic paths. In short, Her Story is a game best ap­proached with as open a mind and lit­tle fore­knowl­edge as pos­si­ble.
