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


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

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.
