Against all odds

Against All Odds is an internet-based game putting players through the experience of being a refugee. It was developed for UNHCR in 2006. 

In the first game module, the player is put through questioning and persecution and through the process of getting out the city and country over a border. A second module puts the player through the process of claiming asylum, and the last module deals with the integration challenges faced by the refugee.

The game module links through to pages with background information for teachers, with explainers on the Geneva Convention and links to background information on migrants, refugees and asylum from external sources such as NGOs.
