ABOUT PATH OUT
Path Out is an autobiographical narrative adventure by Syrian refugee Abdullah Karam and Causa Creations. In the game, players experience Abdullah’s escape from the Syrian civil war, a conflict that forced approximately 12 million people to leave their homes. At key moments throughout Abdullah’s dangerous journey to the Turkish border, he speaks to the player directly and gives insights into his experience in YouTube-style commentary videos.
A prototype of Path Out was available for a limited time on itch.io, with a full version coming to Steam for free later this year. Possible later instalments of the Path Out series could take the player on a journey through Turkey, Greece and the Balkans until Abdulla finally arrives at his destination and current whereabouts in Central Europe.
