Path Out is an autobiographical narrative game following the real journey of Abdullah Karam, a young Syrian escaping the civil war in 2014. Abdullah himself comments the game through Youtube-style videos, giving insights into his dramatic travels through Syria’s war-torn countryside & daily life.
The game is not gameplay heavy and focuses more on the narrative part of the story. players in the game will see themselves interacting with various objects and people. as you progress into the game situation in Syria would get from bad to worse.
You will encounter moments where you have to move with stealth and avoid getting caught by the patrol soldiers.
