  • Witness the actual events of war from different point of view.
  • Emotional experience that will touch your heart.
  • Provoke different feelings in a short space of time.
  • Explore amazing atmosphere.

Why i made this game 

I’m a father of two kids, I can’t imagine my life without them, but in Palestine nobody is safe.

When the war started in Gaza and i saw the images of the killed kids in their parents hands I was shocked, I had a weird feeling, it’s a combination of sadness, fear, empathy and anger, All what i was thinking of is “what if this happened to me”.

I have chosen to share those feelings in a game to deliver a message of how we are living as Palestinians under this situation

It’s Not Just a Game, It’s a case and call for help.
