About Us



The project is the result of the successful collaboration of three partner entities:


Cologne Game Lab of TH-Koeln, a German university of Applied Sciences


Video Games Without Borders, an international nonprofit organization


Wixel Studio, a Lebanese game development studio


Our team is located all over the world and mainly comprises Middle Eastern and North African residents and refugees. It is a mix of scientists, entertainment game veterans and humanitarians. More than 60 people collaborated in the release of this game.


Funding partner

“Antura and the Letters” won the international “EduApp4Syria” competition and was funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs



Our community is also composed of Universities and NGOs who are helping us disseminate the game among refugee families.
