How-To-Play :: Use Arrows [left/right] and that's it ...

Game Summary :

It was created for the Global Game Jam 2019, theme was "What Home Means To You" .. I built this game to express my feelings in my own country, and probably many other countries ...... the negativity everywhere .. ruined streets .. trash that is filling the streets around us... people who turn their amplifiers out loud in streets ... all of this without the government even caring about it ..... don't forget the people who keep shouting at each other with garbage words .... Here .. I expressed about the negativity in our country's streets .. and how going back home after a day full of negativity can finally give you relief ... 

Then the game moves into having soldiers blocking the roads ... and either arrest you or shoot you just because you came a bit close which happened a lot here in Palestine .. and happened a lot in Syria ... and many other countries ... oppression is everywhere .. 

Some people even leave their houses in the morning, and won't be able to come back to them at night ... in the same time everyone around is still singing .. dancing .. laughing and shouting at each other without paying any kind of attention on these cases .... 

It's not complicated at all .. a jam you know .. but I hope it delivers the message somehow ... 
I hope I can finish what's in my mind, if so it'll be found on www.nairatahmad.com.

What a poignant and very personal game... the theme for this jam was very problematic because it is a very personal theme... what home means to YOU... and yet in a jam people are encouraged to work together. 

I loved the theme, and I hated that is is the theme of GGJ... this game shows what 1 person can do with this theme... where most teams were making games about "A Home", this game is about the person who made it. 

Of course it can be improved in the technical aspect, like collisions and camera, but this is an amazing creation.

I Totally Agree With That Suhail ..... it's a very personal theme ... I loved it as I usually work alone you know but unfortunately I suggested on the teams to work as smaller teams as possible but most of them were >2 ... 

Thank you so much for the comment about the game, I was really happy reading it :D .. I already modified the camera but you probably added your comment before I re-upload ... about collision in some areas yeah it needs improving I will once I cool down since organizing GGJ consumed me ... but if you mean the big square collision thingy beside the elevator it was meant to be a hidden stash but I forgot to finish it :D
