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.

... which deals well with Reality. If you Think the Idea is great .., apart from the fact that I like these Kinds of Games, I find the Topic extremely important, maybe so one or the other can understand something better or deal with the Problem, Politics etc. Or even get to Know about Nour and all those who really go down these Paths, Take dangers etc. to fight for their Lives.

It’s a little boring in the beginning, and I would like it to be more pictures! It’s a really cool game though! You literally get to go trough a couples life in text form! I really like the map where you can see information about the countries and the city’s that Nour travels to to get to her “new” life in Europe. I gave 4/5 stars because I would like it to have a clip or something in the beginning where you can see Nour and her husband saying goodbye to each other. All in all I really enjoy this game and the thought behind it!

I expected no less than a game that Arte is a partner. Its format in the form of notifications is very well thought out and allows a better immersion, while giving us time to reflect on the events that have taken place: efficient and efficient. Without ever falling into victimization or slipping into soapy slopes, the game is extremely well written and the dialogues are intelligent. It is not very long but compared to many other serious game in the same vein, this one is unforgettable. When a game gets to change your perception of things, it's no longer a game: it's an adventure.

So that there are no Misunderstandings. The Theme of the Story is very interesting and was the Way. However, Implementation is poor at the content level. The Dialogues seem very stilted and then try to use Emojis to make Communication more lively. That fails. Especially their own Character annoys the Player with extremely peculiar answers. In most Cases, there is only one Answer available, in which it annoys one to send it at all. These Situations relate mainly to embarrassing Relationship Snakes. Of course, everyone knows something like that. But you have to be aware that the Player hardly knows the Characters at the Beginning and the Language is very set up. On me, this seemed ridiculous too often to have felt like continuing the Game. There are far better Games of this Genre where you can wait banished until it goes any further. Here it was rather annoying once a new Notification came in. Did it play for a long time only because it cost Money. Were The Game for nothing, I would have applied less Patience.
