As a player, you and your virtual counterpart Majd 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 etc.
You will also be asked to make important choices – Nour will regularly seek help and ask for your advice. The happy unfolding of her journey is in your hands.
You can choose between communicating in pseudo real-time or according to your own speed. Option 1 implies that if Nour is supposed to do something that will take her a couple hours, there will be no way for you to reach her during that time lapse. Once she is back online, you receive a notification that she’s available – and perhaps needs you. Option 2 implies that real-time notifications are disabled and allows you to play the game whenever you want to.
After finishing the game, you can retake it as many times as you want to and you might experience different outcomes.
Migration of Syrians to Europe due to the Syria war.

The game is based on real events and was inspired by a Syrian woman named Dana, who tried to reach Europe in September 2015.
In Arabic, “Bury me, my Love” is a farewell saying that means “Take care”, “Don’t even think about dying before I do”. Syrians might say it to a loved one, before going separate ways.
