Grats for the successful funding! Smile

Thank you!  And thanks for the very kind compliments nomadsoul!  I will be writing all the music for this too, and I’m also writing some stuff for a friend’s app, so actually I’m finding myself slipping back into it at the moment!

Hi Tim, I know this thread is super old, but I didn’t see any other threads on here about “Contradiction”. I just wanted to say that I bought this game on Steam and really loved it, great concept and riveting until the end. I can’t wait for more games in this vein.

I enjoyed it too, it was great FMV game fix with great acting in that budget.
Give it a try.

Has anyone played this? It was apparently made on quite a low budget via Kickstarter despite having FMV sequences featuring live actors including the notable Paul Darrow who in his role I found so appropriately ‘nasty’ .

I started playing the game a few months ago, got distracted & then picked up on it in the last couple of days which I found easier to continue with than I thought. 
On now finishing I thought the investigation into the apparent suicide of a student was a very engaging experience. The game’s quite linear & yes, very formulaic but the mystery was a fascinating one with the main challenge in the game trying to ‘trip-up’ the people through (wacky) Detective Jenks interviews of them by finding contradictions in what they said which got harder as you progressed.  But also the philosophy of a ‘skills-life’ course was interesting + the accusations of more ‘extreme practises’ used but not tied up (which didn’t matter for the conclusion of the story) leave it open for a sequel which I’m hoping for. I for one liked the ending of the game!

Thanks Tim!: tup: I did try a search for the game to make sure I wasn’t repeating but nothing came up! It’s a game that very much deserves not to disappear under the radar - it’s available from Steam (yeah I know not everyone likes Steam - neither do I prefer that option but if you want a game…) but the game’s well worth trying! Thumbs Up

Finally bought this and I really like it so far! I have never seen this on sale (on any platform) but it seems that 10€ was money well spent. Charming characters, good fmv acting and nice classic murder mystery theme. Like Chrissie said in distant past: game`s well worth trying Smile

Hopefully we`ll see a sequel someday with a little bit bigger budget. Any rumors? At the moment steamspy says that Contradiction has 23 924 owners.
