Play OverviewPlay Overview

Bury Me My Love (2017) is a narrative adventure game where you play the husband of a Syrian woman, Nour, travelling to Europe. Play involves receiving and sending simple messages where Nout tells you how she is getting on and you influence her choices. It stands out for its authentic recreation of these kinds of immigrant journeys and invites you to play your part in determining how it turns out.

It's a game you play for a few minutes at a time. The story unfolds in real-time, so Nour's messages pop up on your phone throughout the day, and can be responded to when you are ready. You make choices between different answers to her questions and influence the decisions she makes and the path of her journey. Each play-through results in a different journey and one of the 20 different endings.

The mature theme, easy progression and low time commitment make this an excellent first game for adults to try. Experience the life of a Syrian migrant in a unique and moving way.

Play Time: This game will take between 2 hours and 4 hours to complete. Play for a few minutes a day and you’ll complete the game in a week or so.

This slow pace is part of the charm and immersion, but there’s a setting to speed it up if you want to complete the game faster.
