Bury Me, My Love
This game is a heartbreaker. You will never feel as helpless as playing as Majd trying to guide his wife Nour to safety through text messages. Whenever we learn about war, there is always talk about what to do with refugees from these conflicts. It can often be hard to empathize with refugees because most teachers have not experienced war first hand.
Bury Me, My Love tells the story of Nour, a Syrian refugee, as she makes her way to safety in Europe. It is unique in that the entire story is told through text messages. You can do you best to guide her and give advice, but at the end of the day it is very likely that Nour will stop responding and you will be left to wonder why. With 19 different endings this game will provide students with actual consequences for the choices they make.
