Google Cardboard launched
Google Cardboard let people see simple 360-degree experiences by slipping their smartphones into a cardboard frame.
The player takes the role of a Police officer ruffling through fictional police footage to resolve right from wrong. A British woman is interviewed multiple times and it is up to the player to decide what happened and to string together the story.
Widely praised for its storytelling, Her Story showed the power of using real-life actors in a video game, blending the two together to make players feel like an investigator looking through VHS footage.
