Lie to the Devil

This game may want to hurt you.


Lie to the Devil is a single player game where the player is left alone in a room to have a conversation with a strange computer AI that eventually wants to hurt him. Not For Children.

I had three goals in creating Lie to the Devil:

I wanted it to feel weird and dangerous, with real-world consequences.


I wanted it to feel like a conversation with a strange machine.

I wanted to see how far players would go to save something they had created.

To show how Lie to the Devil affected players, I created this trailer,  which is comprised completely of real Lie to the Devil player reactions.
