Desert Breeze

Project duration: March 2015 - May 2015
My role: Creating the conceptual prototype
 
This is a game about the inevitability of war inspired by some of Prof. Howard Zinn's works. Prof. Howard Zinn was an American pilot and bombardier in the World War 2. Later on, recounting these experiences he turned out to be a historian, professor in political science at Boston University and a playwright activist.
In desert breeze, you are in a situation of war constantly being fired at. The only possible way to stay alive is to fire back. After killing a certain number of soldiers and being temporarily safe, the player can examine the soldiers' possessions. It could either be their phone with family videos, photographs in it or letters written by loved ones.

The media art piece is available for the OSx. Windows version will be released soon.
