ValderZ - Things I don’t like
I haven’t finished the game, but I’ve encountered something I don’t like so far.
I totally understand I have no control over what Nour does on the other side of the phone, but I do think I should have more control over what Majd does, because I’m playing his role.
If the designer want me to feel like I’m Majd, but doesn’t give me autonomous, instead, only give me the ability to see what happens through his eye without the ability to change anything. In my opinion, this is not good game design, even it can be good story design. I’ll never truly put myself in Majd’s shoes if I’m not allowed to make all important decisions as Majd.
So the scene makes me feel this way is when Nour wakes up late and is missing her plane. I wish I had the choice to call her.
NM4096 - Buggy implement, railroaded story
This game is interesting in concept and well written to some extent, but it ended up railroading me into a ending that I thought I had been carefully avoiding with every choice I had made. The end result was an unsatisfying story that made no sense narratively.
At a technical level, this game presents itself as a simple text message interface which should be the easiest thing in the world for a game to implement—iOS has built in support for scrolling views after all—but it’s completely broken: attempting to scroll back to read what happened previously jitters and jumps around, text is drawn stacked on top of other text making it impossible to read, there are huge gaps between text bubbles requiring you to scroll multiple screen lengths, sometimes it is solid black, etc.
The game is basically playable but there’s no way to read the story that came before.
KTallguy - A slow burn, but ultimately well worth it.
I’ve played similar games that simulate a chat interface and work in real time, but this game impressed me. The choices you make actually matter and appear to change the path Nour takes as she attempts to travel into Europe. The game generally checks in a few times a day and never felt annoying. You can switch it to real time if you’re more interested in flying through, but the story is better told in small chunks. It’s hard not to sympathize with Nour and the plight of many like her. I felt like I understood the situation of many refugees a little better after playing this game.
Starbucksgodist - Amazing
This game is amazing you get to go through a journey that feels so real, like half the time i had like MAJOR anxiety when she wouldn’t answer me and I’m actually waiting for her to text me back right now and I love how you actually have to put your phone down and continue with life until she actually texts you back and I think the waiting factor is really cool because it gives you something to think about and you don’t get an answer right on the spot. But I also love how you get to through this journey with Nour and be there for her throughout her long journey and I just really love this game☺️😊😆☀️❤️
GregGriffith - Worth revisiting with a new format
I really wanted to love this game for its smart dialogue, multimedia use, and relevancy to real-world scenarios that expand cultural knowledge.
While all those things were amazing, polished, and well-executed, the fact is that the text-interface rendered the game lifeless and tedious. In-game choices could be as vapid as choosing which emoji to send, and the consequences for your choices were almost random. I cared less and less when the main character checked-in via text, and when I reached one ending, I didn’t think the game had enough replay value to try again.
For the price it’s worth it merely for the great scripting, but the game did not hold my interest.
Rwelean - Educational and suspenseful
This game helped me understand and sympathize with Syrian refugees in a way that a regular essay couldn't have conveyed. Since I played over the course of two weeks, I got attached to Nour and I was sad when the game ended. I have no personal experience with refugees, but Nour's choices seem realistic and she has to make lots of risky decisions. I love the fact that there are multiple endings... but I'm not sure if I have the emotional strength to play again! Great job.
Ryder w Claus! - Pretty interesting
Fun to type with your bae.
Super cool that the chat goes in real time.
And for those who don’t like that, can just turn it off.
Story takes a while to take off, but I like chatting with Nour, because he/she feels so lifelike!
But I do get pretty annoyed at the lack of options sometimes.
I’ll wind up sending an emoji even though I hate those things just because I want more variety in what I say.
A lot of it leads down the same path too.
You do make big choices, but the big choices are rare.
I understand its based off a real life conversation, but I don’t want my fate to be set in stone from the get-go.
The beauty of these types of games, is you make your way to the end, and depending on the choices you’ve made you can have completely missed scenes or unlock totally new ones that others didn’t experience.
The game does do this, but seldom.
Still had fun playing.
Pflickner - Powerful
I feel like I’m right there with Majd and Nour. It is very tense, knowing that Nour is in a terribly frightening situation that is replicating the experience of thousands of Syrians at this time. I worry that I will make a wrong choice and Nour will be captured, killed, or far worse. For all those times I though, “I can’t imagine what they’re going through,” now, I can.
Potatoe_Joe - It's a great game!
It's a great game overall but I got an ending and the audio won't play. The music pauses but the audio still won't play. I tried going to the map to see if it said anything but all it does is crash. So yeah... that's all I have to say.( Edit: thanks for the link to the website! The audio seems to be working normally as well)
ladysparklez909 - Great text story but glitchy
It’s a nice story but kinda glitchy. Sometimes it won’t let me listen to voice recordings and it spasms every time I try to scroll through past conversations. Please update these glitches!!! I want to be able to play this game smoothly 🥺 also I would like to have a history of all the endings I’ve gotten so far, I think it would be cool.
Boogie boo 13 - Super glitchy
I could have enjoyed this app if it weren’t for the glitches. If I tried to go back and read texts from previous days the screen would shake and flicker and glitch out and I could only read the last few texts from that day. Horrible bug that made my head hurt and super disappointing because I couldn’t refresh my memory on what happened since I was last on.
AveragePam - Good, but....
Game has a really good story line, but when I get to the end with the audio message, the game just automatically says “the end” and I’m not able to listen to it :(
😀✌🏼 - Love this story SO much!
I love the story and how your decision actually effects the story and how beautiful the journey and everything is! I mean this must’ve taken AGES to create and it shows how much quality was put into. it all in all I wouldn’t change a thing
Scopela26 - Glitches take away from the experience
I enjoyed the game and found the story compelling. Unfortunately when I reached an ending the game glitched and I wasn’t able to know what happened. It was a very disappointing considering the time I put in. Can’t recommend playing the game while this glitch exists. Would do another play though if fixed.
Nickolaos - Great game but with a serious bug
Have loved this game for years. Recently the game crashes when you click on city names on the map. Thanks for making this game!
BreakingWynd - I got too invested
My only problem with the game is that I’m not able to tell my wife I love her every time she has to stop talking to me for a bit.
SHAMALAma MOOOOOO MOOOOOOOO - So Fantastic
I got this game after hearing from gloom about it.
I got it to see if it was really as good as it sounded and I couldn’t believe how good it is!
This game definitely deserves 5 Stars.
Palauanmay - Waste of my money!
Nothing about this game was worth a dime. Should’ve been free. All I’m doing is reading messages and clicking on responses that I don’t even prefer, but have no other choice. The most boring game ever. Didn’t have a hint of brain stimulation. It’s just like eavesdropping on strangers’ conversation. All you’re doing is listening to them talk. Waste of time and money!
Miller.Simon - No ending!
Spent hours playing this game, only for the audio that I think is supposed to reveal the ending doesn’t work! (Yes, I have my audio settings on.) Disappointed as this was an interesting game with a lot of potential, but I want to know how the story ends, and I’m not going to chance playing it again to see if it works differently the next time.
weiliesiq - Eye opening experience
Really made me think about the struggle that so many go through.
UrBoiLuke - Awesome Game
A very fun and a very moving game. If you’re impatient like me then you can play in fast mode, but if you want to soak it in you can play real time.
Jordan The Weeb - Loooove it!!!!
For an impatient person like me, I love how the story is in real time so it feels like you’re actually texting- one sec Nour just texted!
Johnnemann - Unparalleled narrative
This game is so good. Believable characters and dialogue, and just an eye-opening story. I can't recommend it highly enough.
iluxu - Immersive and captivating
Immersive captivating experience so far. Keeps me waiting for the next update
Adeimantus - Story progress lost on app update
Well, my love won’t be buried. She’s been lost to the ether. After months of casual play, I guess there was an update to the app, and my story progress has been reset to zero.
MattmanNJ - Watching texting isn’t very entertaining.
I bought this based on positive review in Verge. I’ve spent most of the time watching texts fly by with only occasional interaction. Not very enjoyable.
Creative__Name - Amazing journey
Very good story. Don’t cheat yourself, play it in real time. It adds to the experience.
CellistRockStar - Wonderfully Immersive
I love feeling like such a part of this story. The UI is very simple but the story is rich.
Axel And Minty - beautiful.
this game is amazing, just like i thought it would be.
jenyawenya - Buggy
The game will not even open for me, it’ll start to load and then the app will close out without even getting to the start screen
nice nice yes very nice - Yes
Kuvva-User - No ending in iPad
Wasn’t able to hear the ending, recording wouldn’t play
lolmota - Hate it
It won’t even let me into the app
Rachel Plays MINECRAFT - Hope it's good! :))
I came here from Gloom on YouTube and the app looks really fun! Excited to try it out
OfficerDangles - 3.5⭐️: Would be 5⭐️ if it wasn’t so tedious to change Nour’s fate!
I should start of by saying that the game itself is 5⭐️. The game has an incredible social message and you feel connected to Nour and Madj throughout the game. However, there should be an option when replaying a scenario that you have already played to rewind and choose the outcome from there. There should be “checkpoints” you should be able to revisit to change her fate. We should also be able to skip text once we’ve already seen it in a previous game.
I’m in the middle of my third replay, and it becomes incredibly tedious to replay all these text exchanges. The developers might feel like giving the option to skip through texts you’ve played previously take away from the experience, but it really doesn’t. We already know what’s going to be said, and it’s frustrating to have to wait to get to the important decision making. It’s like playing a video game you’ve played before and not being able to skip through long, tedious cutscenes.
I think that once a player goes through a scenario, those texts that have played before with no choices should be skippable. I also think that decisions should be “checkpoints,” so to speak, that we can revisit at the end of a game if we wish to change Nour’s fate. Making it more like a puzzle we have to solve for an outcome we want is more fun than sitting through a story we’ve seen before.
Until there are some changes made, this will be my last play-through. It’s just too tedious. This is a great game that needs some fine-tuning.

Très bon jeu, je recommande!
Vulgush - Recommencement éternel
C’est bien, mais quand on se trompe, il faut recommencer au début. Pas moyen de recommencer à une certaine étape.
sa0215 - Très bien
J’ai beaucoup aimé, mais il était impossible d’entendre le message de la fin.
ankylosaure - Enthralling.
I’m hanging on every update from Nour.
Decreeder - I'd give it six stars if I could
I got drawn to the story and immediately cared for the characters. i wish this was only in the game though. Unfortunately its happening in real life
Migqwerto - A learning journey
The story feels real and helps you think empathically with migrant people, who are presented impossible choices and whose paths are so diverse.
Crippler6 - Great
Wow this was amazing
Damnmamiyourecute - BEST GAME EVER
Honestly I love it so much, it’s my favourite app on my phone !!
