Th UN Refugee Agency has released an online game that puts the player in the role of a refugee from a hostile regime. Players can choose scenarios that have them escaping from hostile territories, trying to cross dangerous border zones, and adjusting to life and school in a new country. This game tries to get across how dangerous and hostile the life of a refugee from violence or dictatorship can be. Though the game is designed for younger players and for use by teachers, it deals out very harsh and violent consequences for bad decisions as a player is tries to escape. Parents and teachers should try the game first and then decide how best to use it for teaching. This game is very good at showing the terrible odds global refugees face as they try to survive.
