OverviewOverview

Don’t be put off by the name and theme of this intriguing game, an adventure played by choosing responses in what looks like a messaging app. You take the role of the husband of a Syrian migrant travelling to Europe. As the game unfolds in real time, her messages pop up on your phone throughout the day. Choosing the different answers to her questions influences the decisions she makes and the path of her journey. Each play-through results in a different journey and one of 20 different endings.

The mature theme, easy progression and low time-commitment make this an excellent first game for adults to try. Experience the life of a Syrian migrant in a unique and moving way.

Duration: This game will take between 2 hours and 4 hours to complete. Play for a few minutes a day and you’ll complete the game in a week or so. The game world proceeds in real-time, so if the character is travelling or sleeping there will often be a considerable time before the next interaction. This slow pace is part of the charm and immersion, but there’s a setting to speed it up if you want to complete the game faster.
 
Players: This is a single player game.
