Bury me, my Love will be at Gamescom 2017

Paris, France, August 4th 2017 - Today, publisher  Playdius and game developer  The Pixel Hunt announced a publishing deal for the text-message-based game  Bury me, my Love . Co-produced by ARTE and Figs and supported by the CNC, the game will be playable at the Gamescom 2017.

Bury me, my Love is a text-message-based game designed for handheld devices. It tells the story of Nour, a young Syrian woman who is leaving her homeland to find refuge in Europe. Majd, her husband, stayed back in Syria; through a messaging app, he is going to do his best to give her some directions so she can reach her destination safely.

Bury me, my Love is a “reality-inspired game,” a documented fiction which draws inspiration directly from real-world events. The original idea stems from an  article written by Le Monde.fr journalist Lucie Soullier that tells the story of Dana, a young Syrian woman who fled her country and is now living in Germany.

"We are proud to work with The Pixel Hunt", said Francis Ingrand, Plug In Digital & Playdius CEO. "The heart-warming relationship of the characters enclosed in a simple, yet beautifully designed game make of Bury me, my Love a wonderful experience".

Bury me, my Love will be available in Q4 2017 on iOS and Android.

Bury me, my Love will be showcased at Gamescom 2017
