This is a truly amazing, and eye-opening experience. I intend to do a full playthrough of this game.

How Do I Play This?
This game is great. I am a junior high teacher in the U.S. I hope to use this game with my students to help them learn empathy as well as connect with more recent events in the world. Thanks for making a great game that engages and entertains the player.
That's great to hear. We have been told on numerous occasions, that the game could function quite well with students. Do let us know, how the game was being received by your pupils!
The gameplay is very simple and that's how it should be, not to get in the way of the (touching & terrifying) story.
So congrats, good game and very good idea to talk about this subject this way.
I read on some comments advising to do localisation, I think the first thing (and easiest) would be to just add english subtitles when Abdullah talks. I'm not an english speaker myself and sometimes had some trouble understanding.
Good luck with the game ! (and the rest)
Thanks a lot, Dewal! Localisation and subtitles for the video parts are really on top of our list right now!
I really liked the idea! Hoping anxious for the next episode.
Wonderfulf game. There is no need for high end grafics if you have a story to tell. Especially Abdullahs comments are great. Maybe we need more games and stories like these to appreciate all we got in Europe...
This comment isn't really abot the game, but I was still wondering if you were still living in Turkey. And if so, did you happen to be in Eskisehir yesterday? Because we were in the Esparkk shopping center and I saw someone who looked EXTREMELY like you.
I ended up having a crisis about not being able to ask you right in the middle of a clothing store, so I really need to know.
Full disclosure: the game will eventually show the rest of the trip, crossing the sea and leading through numerous treacherous lands until safety ...
Uh... Is that a yes?
That's a "the journey eventually continued all the way to Austria" ;)
Thank you for the game! It was great. I like the old rpg-style and the music, combined with the serious story. Hope there will be a continuation.
I actually like this game a lot! It's a shame the developers haven't uploaded it to indiemarket.net the community there would love it :)
A "game" that needs to be played by far more people. Especially by those "refugees out" *******.
I think it would be good if you could go even more into detail in the "why you don't fight for your country" matter, or why you didn't take some other family members with you, because that are the first things the "anti refugee movement" comes up with. Like some explanation videos when you encounter the different groups the first time, or leave your parents behind.
And german Subs would be awesome. :)
Hope to see the finished story here one day , not only because I'm curious, but also hope that this project helps you deal with all the shit you experienced. :)
Thanks for the kind words! You have some good points there and since this is just a demo for now, we'll try to make those points more clear in the next iterations. Other languages and localisation is also a valid point, we hope to have additional funds to get that started soon too.
I made a German Let's Play... noticing that my english ain't that good ;-)
No comments? Huh...
Hi, I really like the game! It's a great concept and executed very nice. Can't wait to play the rest of it. :)
