Orwell’s Animal Farm Releases December 10 to Steam & Mobile Platforms
You probably have had to read Animal Farm sometime in your life, usually, it’s a book that is required for school reading projects. Animal Farm is a classic novel that has only gained traction over the years. We think it’s great that it’s becoming an adventure game you can play. Orwell’s Animal Farm will hit both Steam and mobile platforms on December 10. We think it’s a fitting release for the end of 2020. In a year full of crazy, might as well go back to the iconic Animal Farm to really hammer it all home.
The developer of this game is Nerial and the publisher for the game is Dairymen. It’s essentially a game version of the popular book, but some of the things in this game are different than the novel itself. There are management parts of the game although a lot of the game itself is narrative-driven.
The art in this game is really spectacular since it’s all hand-drawn and incredibly detailed. There is also some writing in the game that comes from Emily Short, so if you like her then you’ll love those additions to the game.

Orwell’s Animal Farm PC & Mobile Game Offers More Than One Ending
There are quite a few similarities between the iconic novel and this upcoming adventure video game, such as a lot of the same situations and characters. While a lot of it might seem familiar to you if you read the book, it offers a bit of variety as well to keep you entertained. In the game, there are situations you’ll face that Orwell didn’t live to see, so it expands upon the novel a bit more to fit current times.
If you remenber reading the book, there is one ending to the revolution. You’ll find that the game itself offers more than one ending. In fact, there are eight different endings in Orwell’s Animal Farm. One of the endings matches the ending of the book, but the other seven are entirely new endings that you will get to choose.
In this narrative-driven adventure, you will be able to make decisions that alter which ending you’ll get. It’s possible a dictator we’ve never thought of before rises up. You also might end up choosing the ending where it’s an awesome place for all animals. The ending is really dependent upon which options you choose as you go through the game itself.
