We learn of Nour’s actions and fate – in both Nour’s Choice and Bury me, my Love – from Majd’s perspective, via the instant messenger communication he has with his wife.
Both a great way for existing players of Bury me, my Love to learn more about the relationship between Nour and Majd, and their fraught situation, and for newcomers to introduce themselves to the themes and interface of the full mobile game, Bury me, my Love: Nour’s Choice is available to play now, here.
Bury me, my Love was released for iOS and Android platforms on October 26, 2017, attracting coverage at GamesBeat, Engadget, Videogamer and more while winning the Developer’s Choice award at IndieCade Europe 2017.
The game follows, through a WhatsApp-like interface, the journey of a refugee from Syria to Europe, from the perspective of her husband who has to stay behind in the equally dangerous surroundings of their war-ravaged home. It has been produced in consultation with real-life refugees, but the game’s characters are fictional.

Bury me, my Love is a premium title available on the App Store and Google Play store, priced at $2.99 (€3.49 in Europe and £2.99 in the UK).
