Occasionally, a game like Path Out comes along and you know there's something cool about what you're seeing before you play it. Built to look like an old-school JRPG with newer graphics, Causa Creations has put together something special, with a couple different tricks up their sleeves that we don't want to give away here.
Instead, we want you to do what the developers of the game want you to do, and that's trying out the free demo they released today. Honestly, some of what we already tried out was kind of cool — and because it's a demo, we don't want to give any kind of a review, nor do we want to ruin anything for you if you decide to try it out. Take our word for it: it's worth the time to try. Below is a description of the game and the demo trailer if you need some convincing.
Summary: Path Out is is an autobiographical adventure game that allows the players to replay the journey of Abdullah Karam, a young Syrian artist that escaped the civil war in 2014. Camouflaged as a Japanese RPG, Path Out is a tale full of surprises, challenges and paradoxical humor, giving insight in this real-life adventure, on which Abdullah comments through youtube-style videos in the game. Currently, there is an extended demo with approx. 45 minutes of gameplay available!
