  • Bury Me, My Love

Bury me, my Love is a Text Messaging Adventure game about Nour, a Syrian migrant trying to find her way to Europe. Her husband Majd, who remains behind in Syria, communicates with Nour through a messaging app, advising her as best he can so that she reaches her destination safely.
“Bury me, my love” is a Syrian goodbye phrase that roughly means, “Take care, don’t even think about dying before I do.” This phrase takes on a deeper meaning as Majd says it to his wife, Nour, as she undertakes her perilous journey to reach Europe.

A co-production from ARTE, the European cultural network, with The Pixel Hunt and Figs.

A game in an instant messaging app
As Majd, you can communicate with Nour and follow her journey, just as if you were chatting with her via WhatsApp. You will text each other and exchange emojis, pics and selfies, relevant links…

Multiple narrative routes to discover
By reading instant messages and choosing response options, players help Nour overcome the hardships she will encounter.
Your choices in Bury me, my Love truly impact on the story, with Nour able to visit 50 different locations and reach 19 potential different endings with widely divergent outcomes.

Based on real-life events
Bury me, my Love is a “reality-inspired game”, a documented fiction that draws inspiration directly from real-world events. The original idea stems from an article written by Le Monde journalist, Lucie Soullier, telling the story of Dana, a young Syrian woman who fled her country and is now living in Germany.

This experience may affect the sensitivity of younger people.

A lineup of 41 lesser-known indie darlings, party favourites, curiosities and old favourites have gone on sale this week. “Sure, Nat,” you cry, “you say that, but games go on sale all the time.

For the rest of this week, the big-wigs over at the IGDA Foundation have set up nice little charity fundraising event. Until the end of the One Ga...


Could you imagine what a life without your smartphone would be? It’s probably pretty difficult – or it might even be nightmare material for some. In less than a decade, smartphones have become an absolute central piece of our lives. They hold our most precious pictures, our beloved tunes, our bank info and other sensitive data… And more than anything else, they allow us to eas...


Developer: The Pixel Hunt, ARTE France, FIGS Publisher: Playdius Release: Out now On: Windows From: Steam For: 4, $5, 5 “A game about Syrian refugees” has certain connotations, at least if you are not yourself a Syrian refugee. I expected sustained suffering, a maudlin and desperate tone, confusing cultural differences and a great deal of poetic misery. Which, well, probably says a few uncomfortable things about me, doesn’t it? Because Bury Me, My Love, which plays out as a qua...
