“…not only a brave initiative [but] a great game..” AppsZoom.com - Endgame Syria is a free interactive exploration of the ongoing civil war. Can you make the choices to win peace as well as war?
Updated! Version 2.1 is now on PC, Mac and Android. Version 1.2 is available to play here as HTML5 and on Facebook (note if you downloaded the previous version, for technical reasons we’re not able to update that version, so you’ll need to install the new version v2.1 and delete the old version 1.0, sorry, our bad!) We did try to get the game on to iPhone/iPad too, and managed, sort of…as Endgame:Eurasia.
Endgame Syria is a free interactive exploration of events unfolding in Syria today. It is a news-game; a simulation that uses interactivity to explore a real world event. It is available for free on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and is also on Android or as a HTML5 game (see above for links). You can also get the game for free on PC via Desura, GameJolt, IndieCity & Indievania.
Developed in around two weeks, the game allows users to explore the options open to the Syrian rebels as they push the conflict to its endgame. Each choice the user makes has consequences – the types of military units you may deploy, the political paths you choose to tread. Not only does each choice impact the current situation but your choices may also impact the final outcome. Users can play and replay events to see how different choices on the ground might lead to different outcomes. (You can see our sources for the game here.)
Will you choose to accept peace at any cost? What if the war goes badly and the only options left mean more extreme actions; would you agree to follow this path? Can you win the war and the peace that follows? Find out in Endgame Syria.
