OverviewOverview

You nurture a Lebensborn child in Norway after World War II who faces a hostile community because they’ve been born to parents of both occupied and occupying forces. With meagre resources yourself, you must feed, clothe and bathe the child, but more importantly, help them cope with the heavy inheritance of German soldier genes in a country celebrating its freedom. The child faces not only a challenge of identity and guilt but bullying from teachers as well as classmates.

The demeanour of the child as they cope with the situation requires the player to make good decisions in terms of emotional care and more practical help in matters of food, hygiene and money.

With the focus more on the story and setting, there's less of an emphasis on gameplay or skill, meaning you don't need quick reactions or reflexes, focusing instead on the big decisions in the story. decisions in the story.

Lots of the game's message, information and story is conveyed through text, which is generally fairly large and contrasts well with the background (black text on yellow background). for dialogue, which is not voiced, it appears in speech bubbles of the same style.

Throughout the game, it is indicated where you need to click using a glowing white outline around specific objects that is clear and easily identifiable. Most of the game is also quite bright and each element contrasts well compared to others around it.

On mobile, you tap and drag to write letters, draw pictures and check newspapers, but on console, this is a timed mini-game instead. There is a patch planned to make this a drag mechanic on the console too.
