Story Players #016 – Virginia

story_players_logo_350We’re kicking off season two of Story Players with another BAFTA Award nominated game. This time it’s Virginia from Variable State. In the game, you play as an FBI agent working a missing persons case in a small town in Virginia. But you’ve also been assigned to investigate your partner for some reason, and to report any suspicious activity. The story unravels from there. One unique aspect to Virginia is that throughout the two-hour narrative-focused story, there isn’t any spoken or written dialog. The actions, gestures, scenes, and amazing musical score narrate the entire experience.

We want to hear your theories about Virginia! Please use the comments below, e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook to send your thoughts and theories. All of our contact information is listed below.
