Bury me my Love tells the story of Syrian refugee Nour and her husband Majd, as Nour 

undertakes a perilous journey to safety in Europe.
 
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 text message. 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, 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.
