Purpose
  • Other purpose
Frontiers is a 3-D online multiplayer game that leads its players to the borders of Europe. It portrays a refugee itinerary from the sub-Sahara region to Europe. As a refugee or border patrol players get to know the border and the life behind it from both sides – in the Sahara, the Spanish city Ceuta, the beaches in southern Spain or the rainy Container in Rotterdam. The game portrays a major migration itinerary from Sub-Sahara to Europe. The players face up to four border situations on their route and a final dream-like landscape filled with interviews and material from the research undertaken by the team of experts which was involved in the development of the game. Every map is based on reallocations and on the stories of people, who experience those borders as insurmountable frontiers in their struggle to find peace and a place to survive.
