A very polished and graphically well-developed short story about displacement, May 12, 2017

This is a very well put-together game which deals with a young boy named Ishmael whose family has been impoverished and displaced, and deals with their journey towards insurgency.

The graphics and interface are impeccable. This is really, really well done. It also includes an animated story and some sound effects that I didn't hear because I didn't have headphones and didn't turn on my speakers (not his fault).
