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!
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)
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
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.
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
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.
hdhshsg2726 - Really cool💕🔥
I love how you are texting like it is real when I fount out about it I wanted it really bad so I bought and and now I’m hooked. The other about this is that it is so real that when that are busy u can just wait and it us like u got a real text. A good game like this needed to cost. Plus this is not like other games when you have to pay to see the photos I really like that. The first time I saw the picture I thought I would have to pay. It also cool how they don't just text u right back when your text back its really cool. Hope there is more to come.
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!
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.
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 :(
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.
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.
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☺️😊😆☀️❤️
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Creative__Name - Amazing journey
Very good story. Don’t cheat yourself, play it in real time. It adds to the experience.
weiliesiq - Eye opening experience
Really made me think about the struggle that so many go through.
CellistRockStar - Wonderfully Immersive
I love feeling like such a part of this story. The UI is very simple but the story is rich.
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.
iluxu - Immersive and captivating
Immersive captivating experience so far. Keeps me waiting for the next update

Très bon jeu, je recommande!

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
Vulgush - Recommencement éternel
C’est bien, mais quand on se trompe, il faut recommencer au début. Pas moyen de recommencer à une certaine étape.
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.

That is all i have to say for this game.
Wait soz i have to go Nour answered me!!!
Eaterlight - I love it, but...
Beautiful game. Original and heartwarming. But it can be quite buggy and laggy, like scrolling messes up the screen. The map is somewhat difficult to use too.
**To anyone reading, this part below spoils an ending.**
I’ve just finished the game for the second time, Nour was on her way through a river, but the boat capsized, and Majd was begging her to run..
Nour stopped responding, and as always, she sent a voice message to bring the ending. But i tap play, and the audio recording wont start? Last time, I had no issues. I am DYING to figure out what happened ...
rhys502 - Amazing story
The actual narrative is amazing and really immersive but it’s got minor problems like the map is really clunky and hard to navigate. Also when you go to read texts from previous days it only allows u to see the last few which is quite Annoying because u can’t really read through ur past decisions. Also it would be amazing if you could implement some sort of money tracking system.I would also appreciate some sort of ending library that tells me how many of the ending I have got and so I can listen to some on my older endings just so I know whether I’ve gotten all the endings or not.
Matthew WF - Great game, but buggy engine
This is a wonderful game, very thoughtful and teaches me about a struggle and an area of the world I’m not familiar with.
By and large the dialogue is well written (the occasional autocorrect humour could be a little more occasional, and I don’t always feel the offered emoji quite fit what I would say). The pictures add another level of depth and beauty to the game.
But there are problems with the engine. Scrolling can break the rendering of the text balloons, making it feel quite fragile.
At least once with a picture I thought I’d locked the game because I couldn’t exit it (it turns out there was a very hard to see ‘X’ in the top left. So not actually a bug, just a slight UX problem.)
But the worst thing is that having just ended the game a second time, the concluding audio will not play - this is very frustrating!
Please continue to work on this lovely game, and fix up some of the bugs that detract from it being enjoyed as it should!
ju5 - Just ok
Two problems, this could be great if you could actually do more to help such as check plane departures, road closures, camp status, maps, train times etc, rather than just click two text options, half the time the app reply’s for you, so you don’t even get a choice.
Secondly the character you are helping isn’t very appealing, she’s arrogant and repulsive, so I care not one bit wether she survives.
That’s the main problem I find. It’s hard to care what happens to her and that ruins the whole game. Every time she signs off with a frustrated or angry emoticon I care less and less if she lives or burns in a tent fire. 🔥
jack tha lad - please add checkpoints, otherwise amazing
really nice and tugs at your heart strings. although i find myself not motivated to try to finish the game for different outcomes because you can’t skip the bits you’ve been through before. just a time waster when you go through the exact same dialogue many times. pretty style and all that but i wish you could set checkpoints that you could go back to if the journey ended
Frezley - I’m confused!
I work for a refugee charity, so was really interested to find out about this. I have no problems with how the game is played. It’s vital that stories like this are told and there’s a lot of realism via the real-time playing mode and the dialogue, itself. My main issue is that I managed to get Nour to her destination, she was waiting to hear about her decision to be able to stay and then I was told her journey ends but without explanation. I’m not even sure if it was a positive or negative ending to the game! It felt as though it were negative but there was no reason given for why she was returned home (If she was) and this made the experience oddly flat. If she was refused, I would have expected a message to say why. Also, if that’s the case, how can I, as a player, change that decision? If she was accepted, then surely I should be notified, and some celebration of the fact be incorporated? I’m playing again as I find the stories fascinating but I don’t hold out much hope for any kind of satisfactory conclusion as a player. This is a shame because I’d really like this game to be successful for people who aren’t, currently, strongly interested in the refugee crisis. It has to work very well as a game in order for the story to reach people. I’ve also read the reasons from the developer for no money from the game currently going to help refugees and have some issues with them. I understand that the producers need to recoup the cost of the game first but not the excuse that ‘we’re not activists so it’s not important’. I think that many would be more inclined to try out this game if as least a small percentage of the profits were going to charity, so expenses would be recouped faster, overall. Once costs were covered, I think 50% (or more) of the cost should be donated. Profiting from others’ tragic stories looks quite distasteful to the average consumer and, although I don’t think this is the intention of the developers, this is what appears to be the situation for many who have not researched how this game. I hope my points here are helpful to those involved in making this game.
JulietAnne - Brilliant. Just brilliant.
Clever, thought-provoking and yet deceptively simple. Bravo!
PRSVNZ - Great idea but incredibly slow
I appreciate the idea, but for a game with multiple endings and not a lot of interaction, it would be nice if we could skip or fast forward dialogue already seen, or go back to a previous moment. I just spent 40 minutes trying to get to where I was, on the fastest settings possible (because while the real time mechanic is powerful, who has all that time?) and the game ended after a couple of choices. Please consider adding a way to make it easier to go through these routes, because I can’t imagine going through the same thing over and over again at a snails pace in order to experience all parts of the story. I will probably just leave it for now and hope this will be implemented some day.
MalcolmJSC - Compelling story
Take part in a real-time-ish text conversation between Nour and Majd, as Majd supports his wife Nour by phone as she flees Syria for Europe. You quickly get sucked into an emotional connection. It’s compelling.
There aren’t a lot of decisions to make. But the ones you do make seem to have major impact on the story. My partner and I are seeing totally different stories.
Can you get Nour safely settled in Europe? Don’t know if I can get / not at the end!
lawJm - A stunning, illuminating journey
Just get it, it’s beautiful
Arebil - Rubbish
What's this about? There's no fun here.
I stayed with it and if you enjoy reading a badly written conversation between 2 people in a very real eye opening situation give it a try. Still one star though as it's not a game.
Samuel Partridge - Slow burning gem of a game.
Fascinating and upsetting in equal parts - a thoroughly thoughtful, challenging game. If you liked lifeline, waltz with bashir or just want a human perspective on an international crisis, I can’t recommend more.
ElderlyGoose - Absolute gold.
Different, unique and interesting story set in very real terms. Something else and definitely worth a go!
The brightness of the sun will give me just enough to bury my love in the moondust.
