Peace

We aim to drive a generational shift in mindset to inspire children to promote a sustainable peace.

Empathy

We will humanize displaced people by putting players in the shoes of a refugee forced to deal with daily hardships.

Impact

When you purchase food, water, and medicine in Salaam, you are also providing supplies to people living in refugee camps

Immersive Gameplay

The game starts with a caravan of refugees walking through the jungle on their way to safety. The setting is peaceful, yet dire, given the circumstances. Parents carrying their children struggle to keep pace with the rest of the group. Your character fades into view. Suddenly, gunshots are fired in the distance! Your family crouches to avoid danger. There is brief pause and silence. More shots are fired and the caravan begins to run. Panic ensues and eventually your character makes way to the front of the group. A military vehicle appears ahead and soldiers fire in your direction. Now alone, your character turns down the nearest path. Thus, the game begins.
