Just a boy in a sad situation.

Chatting with Jordan Magnuson the developer behind Ishmael. Its a game about a boy who happens to be Palestinian. The narrative game explores what this means to him and how that affects his day to day life. This game was featured in the nominees section of IndieCade and is well worth checking out.

From the dev: “A short multimedia-enhanced hypertext game about perpetual cycles of displacement and violence, as seen through the lens of a child. Takes about 15 minutes to read/play, and no gaming skills are required.”
