There are many countries, but why did you select Syria?

The game was made in 48 hours so there wasn't time to be smart about the concept. But here's some explanation about my thought process at the time: 1- I wanted to make a game about immigration 2- I'm from Syria and the game is partially auto-biographical. Like Bunny, I was happy to leave Syria and neither of us looked back. I wanted to try and capture that feeling.

You're right though, it is weird that I name-dropped the country. I'm going to removing all mentions of Syria in the sequel! :)

I think it's ok you mentioned Syria, it was your home. Where are you living now? Are you happy? Great job on the game!

Chilling in the US, West Virginia. Very happy ;)

Thank you!
