I was a pretty small kid in 1979, so my recollection of the Iranian Revolution consists of hearing about hostages on the news and wondering where, exactly, Iran was. Nearly 40 years later, we can try to experience what happened on the streets of Tehran via a new adventure-style/interactive fiction title, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday. The game has been available for a couple months on Steam, but is coming to iOS in just a few weeks.
When iNK Stories first sent me the trailer for 1979, I thought I was looking at a new adventure game from Telltale. It has that vibe, although I didn't notice any annoying QTE buttons in the video. The game puts you in the shoes of a photojournalist on the streets of Tehran when the shit went down, as they say. Throughout the game you'll make choices just trying to survive on the streets. It looks gritty and harrowing, both in the action on the streets as well as in interrogation rooms.
