"That Day We Left" - a game about the refugee crisis


InnerVoid Interactive have announced their latest game project: That Day We Left. The game aims to provide a realistic view of the political and humanitarian issue that is the refugee crisis - from a refugee’s point of view. 

That Day We Left is based on real stories from the refugees themselves. Make the journey thousands of Syrians have made and see what you would do in their situation. 



Description

That Day We Left aims to provide a realistic view of the political and humanitarian issue that is the refugee crisis - from a refugee’s point of view. That Day We Left is a 3D adventure game that, like Innervoid’s previous title, ICY, focuses on meaningful choices and immersive narrative. Combined with resource management akin to survival games, That Day We Left offers a healthy balance of gameplay and storytelling. Thanks to the use of real situations found in stories reported by refugees, there is a great sense of realism in the events that happen in the game. Due to the nature of the topic, Innervoid strives to present the human aspect of the crisis and depict characters that are fleshed out and believable. The game allows the player to experience the journey from a refugee’s perspective. You will assume the role of Rashid, the head of a family escaping the horrors of war to seek refuge in Europe. How far will you go to assure the safety of your family and yourself?
