Released in 2013

Project Syria was originally commissioned by the World Economic Forum and created at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, this immersive journalism piece focuses on the plight of these children. By coupling pioneering virtual reality technologies with audio and video captured at a tragic event, Project Syria transports audiences to the a scene as the story unfolds.

Nearly one half of Syria’s 23 million people have been displaced in its civil war and no group has been as severely affected as children. Children make up more than half of the three million refugees living in camps or makeshift housing and some news reports indicate that children are actually being specifically targeted in the violence.

Project Syria reviews and comments

Product received for free I do not know what to do with this UFO completed in 3 minutes. I wouldn't even dare describe it as a "refugee Simulator," I don't even know if this category exists. It is a sequence of 3 scenes without real logical links, which represent (I believe!) the three stages of life of the refugee. The "player" has nothing to do: he looks and he undergoes this strange virtual object and not playful. This thing has no interest. No game, no allegory, no educational video, you may be scratching your head after the painful viewing. The "game" lasts three minutes shows in hand. Let e be Thunderstruck if I lie.

A "game" at the height of the ideas it represents: mediocre and fallacious. I put "game" in quotation marks because it is a simple cinematic made in 3D with awkwardness. The duration of this cinematic is 2-3 minutes, with a serious voiceover and very poorly animated images that represent situations corresponding to the voice off. Pro-migrant propaganda coded to the puller, turns hard (wait up to several minutes for it to launch) and I even think that it completely disserves the cause it claims to defend. Optimization is shabby and your computer has more trouble managing this game than GTA 5 in ultra (truthful). If you have 3 minutes to lose, that you need an express lobotomy, that you are not looking for quality and if you call all those who do not share the same ideas as you "fachos" on the net, then this content is for you.

The Syria Project is the case when they wanted to make VR on a humanitarian topic, but it turned out nonsense. What is strange, considering that the program was made by the studio of Noah de la Peña, which is considered the godmother of VR, in some circles. In fact, we have 3 minute footage, with a static posture, and a lack of interactivity (except that you can look around), which starts from the street of Aleppo, with a singing there is something national girly. Next is an explosion, yelling, then we move to the refugee camp, and the announcer in a harsh voice says that as a result of the war there were many refugees, and among them many children. There is a simple question-and what next? Refugees, including children, appear in all more \ Less major conflicts, specifically on Syria there is no information given, so in terms of education, the program is zero. How's the game going to go? There is no interactivity, and the duration is only 3 minutes, so no. Emotional Glow? The Picture in terms of Modelek made worse than it was during the second Playstation, and the footage here does not shine drama, so no emotion program also does not cause. Then Why? The Answer, alas, is not expected. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126193393 P.
