Darfur Is Dying

NEWICONS-02Darfur Is Dying depicts the struggle of a single individual to survive in the midst of famine and violence in the Darfur region of Sudan. The game’s designer, Susana Ruiz, wanted to increase public awareness of this suffering, with the hope that using a game to dramatize the dangers of daily life in Darfur would spur a desire to help the afflicted people.

The game is browser-based. During each turn of the game, players face challenges like finding water, evading Janjaweed militias, and planting crops in an arid, war-torn region.
