If you’d told me that a full-motion video game would be one of 2015’s most talked about mobile games — and not because it was hilariously┬ábad, but because it was nothing short of brilliant — I would have laughed you out of the room.

More fool me.

Normally $4.99, you can now get Her Story, the mystery-through-old-videos experience, for just $1.99. Players dig through old police interviews trying to solve a crime. If the popular podcast Serial was a video game experience, it would probably look something like this.

Don’t be surprised when Her Story starts showing up on a lot of Game of the Year lists. Pick it up now so you can better understand why.
