Drowning a Mermaid Productions


We are a videogame production company based in NYC.

We were founded in 2017 by triple Bafta winning writer-director Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story. Our mission is to tell stories that you can explore and have conversations with. Stories that sometimes bite back.

In 2019 our first title, Telling Lies, was published by Annapurna Interactive. This intimate investigative thriller received rave reviews and was heralded for the depth of its story and the performances of its cast.

In 2020 we begin production on our next title, codename “Project I–“.

Telling Lies

Four private lives. One big lie. Search through secretly recorded video conversations to discover the truth.
