The Syrian refugee crisis has caused many of Syrians to flee their home country due to the ongoing civil war that started in 2011. Citizens of Syria live in constant fear knowing that their home is not safe and can be destroyed any second. Many people decide to leave everything behind and seek refuge in search for safety. However, the escape does not guarantee a better life. In this choose-your-own-adventure game, videos of real-life interviews with Syrian refugees show mistreatment, suffering and poor living conditions they encounter. The game allows players to shift their perspective and understand the complexity of the Syrian Refugee crisis.
