“Borders” Indie Game


“Borders” is a stealth based game where players must walk in the shoes of an immigrant and experience the dangerous journey of crossing the border in hopes of a better life. Players must avoid (La Migra) border patrol and the extreme heat of the desert by moving through bushes and staying hydrated by finding water. The game is based off the stories told by parents and grandparents about their struggles crossing over to provide a better life for our generation.
