“Path Out” [2017]

Abdullah KARAM and Causa Creations

“Path Out”


Abdullah KARAM, an artist who exiled from war-torn Syria in 2014, created this game based on his own true story using the “RPG Maker” tool. Accompanied by footage of the artist himself that occasionally wipes in, as well as commentary on his experiences in Syria and his situation as a refugee, the game unfurls as the player navigates KARAM around land mines and other traps, and thereby relives the process of his defection. The game eloquently stresses the nature of narratives that can only be told through a combination of the adventure game format and the “RPG Maker” tool.
