It lacks the same flexibility that Sara Is Missing doesn't have in terms of influencing the story as it's not really much of a game at all either, but it also has the same impressive fake phone aesthetics that makes SIM feel quite realistic and immersive. However, unlike with SIM, I don't really mind how short this one is as it already perfectly serves its purpose of shedding a bit of light on certain actual societal issues. Anyway, I just really appreciate what this app is trying to do to inform or educate people a bit on what it's like to be a refugee in certain parts of the world. The attempt on spreading awareness alone is already commendable enough to me regardless of the technical or aesthetic aspects of the gameplay.
This game clearly shows what refugees are going through these days and conveys such great message. The malaysian slang used are really convincing and i really love this game! There's only one problem; it doesn't save my progress and it made me play from the beginning after i left the game. But still,good job!
The thing is, I don't feel the thriller here like Sara Is Missing and just to make it seemed real, why the slangs? Just because we're Malaysians? Btw, it's nice to see Malaysians doing this as an awareness. Keep up!
Seeing as other reviewers have already touched on the game's message, I would like to add that While Finding Home is marginally better than Sara Is Missing, the story could've been better. It's like, I know I gotta eat these veggies, but would a little meat be bad with the meal?
What many people don't understand is that this is not a normal horror "game". It is telling and showing you only one outcome to many that can happen for refugees around the world. It is an eye opener for many and since there could be millions of different horrific scenarios for each of the millions of refugees I am glad they ended this story peaceful. But don't take what you have for granted, YOU get to "play a game" while millions of people, human beings live this everyday.
Pretty good example of the "lost phone" game. You get to see Kay's struggles in a foreign country. There isn't much game play per se - nothing you do changes the story. It's kind of short. Still very good work.
