Description

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.

History

Path Out is a collaboration between Abdullah Karam, the developers of Causa Creations and the Austrian-American graphic designer Brian Main. The project started as a chance encounter between Abdullah and Causa’s Georg Hobmeier who met more or less by accident in Salzburg in the Fall of 2015.Together with the Vienna based graphic artist Brian Maine, who became Abdullah mentor, they set out to create Path Out. After securing base funding for a prototype through various grants for artistic research in collaboration with Vienna’s University for Applied Arts, they commenced working on it in later 2016. Currently the game is in early development, a demo version of the first chapter will be published in spring 2017 for PC, MAC and Android devices.
