Genres: Puzzle, Adventure
Oriented to a sensitive audience, with a taste for good stories, you can face reality while enjoying yourself as a child again thanks to its artistic style.
With this project we hope to awaken the player's empathy for the hardship that refugees are currently experiencing.
Massira offers up nothing for an adult looking for a new narrative-adventure game to sink their teeth into. It's narrative is intriguing but has no payoff and its gameplay is bland and, at times, poorly designed. However, if you have a child, sit down with them and play Massira for a few hours. The game will give them an insight into the Syrian Refugee Crisis in an approachable and kid-friendly way.
Full of good intentions to show a harsh reality, Massira can be touching and lovely, even if the visual style, technical limitations and gameplay may say otherwise. The message that we need to be better human beings is still understood despite all the flaws that the game has.
