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 WhatsApp. 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, Lucie Soullier, 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.

Got emotionally invested right away, and the end I got made me just stare at the screen for several minutes. Important and harrowing story.
David 5
There aren't many games that can make me really emotionally involved--and potentially upset when things go awry--through a simple mechanism of just SMS-style texts and a few pictures. I got really involved in the story of Majd and Nour and really wanted Nour to get to a safe place. I won't include any spoilers but this game brought me near to tears--and also sighs of relief. It's emotionally compelling art in the form of a simple 'game'.
Suad 5
I was waiting a long time for this game to come out. I was amazed by the idea behind it and wondered if it will actually be applied in the way described. It is indeed a successful attempt to amplify the voice of many Syrians who went through a lot to reach a safe haven in Europe. I loved all the details, the story narrative, the pictures, the voice messages and the ending music is just amazing how it fits both happy and sad endings. This game has a strong message and I encourage all to try it. I am Syrian myself and I couldn't have tell the story better. One technical note though I couldn't get it to work on real time mode on my android phone.

Brilliantly written, powerful piece of work. At first, it seems like your choices aren't making a difference, but after a while they stack up and you realise how differently things could have gone. The conversational format is vital; even though you never forget it's fiction, you find yourself cooking your dinner in between messages, wondering if Nour is going to be okay.
Alex 5
I have never played a game that represented my Syrian culture so accurately. BMML is absolutely brilliant and a MUST PLAY.
Minh 1
Gave it a 4 star review but I have to come back and edit to 1 star cause this game is too buggy, unplayable.
C.J. 5
I'm waiting to hear back from Nour right now. I've been gripped from the start. More games like this need to be made.

I was charged twice for this game, other than that. Im excited to play it. Devs, please help get my payment sorted out

The game is really good, but for some reason notifications are not working for me :-(
Gajalakshan 5
Such a clever and beautiful game. It's more art than a typical game.
Benjamin 5
Such a blast! A beautiful story, that makes you involved in the fate of your fictionnal wife, worrying about her everyday. That was a long time that a game almost made me cry.
