Orwell’s Animal Farm is an adventure game based on George Orwell’s original 1945 novella. In the game, all animals are equal, but “some are more equal than others.” The game follows the story about absolute power, corruption, and the ups and downs of Animalism.
After fighting off their human masters, the animals are in charge. Players will have to assign the animals tasks, upgrade their buildings, choose their laws, and direct their propaganda. They also have to make tough decisions on which animals will make sacrifices.
The game features the familiar characters from the novella into a video game and modernizes the experience. The game will change depending on how players move forward. They may create a game similar to the novella or create a brand new tale.
We are excited to confirm that Orwell's Animal Farm will be released on the 10th of December on PC and mobile.

While there isn’t action-packed gameplay, the story heavily depends on making tough decisions. After these decisions are made, players will learn how exactly animals react and may be forced to say goodbye to some of their favorites. The game has high-replayability with many decisions and outcomes.
