Liyla & the Shadows of War

Liyla & the Shadows of War is both an exploration of what games can communicate, and a plea for help from someone actually affected by the reality the game sketches. You play Liyla’s father, hiding and running from Israeli bombs hitting the Gaza Strip, and your goal is to protect your daughter. But unlike any typical mobile game, there are no extra lives, no superpowers, and there is no winning.
