Game: 1979 Revolution – Black Friday

1979 Revolution: Black Friday was finally published this weekend – an hybrid of documentary game, adventure and narrative set in Iran during the political unrest leading to the fall of the Shah.

From the website: “The year is 1978, the place is Tehran, Iran. You play as Reza Shirazi, a young photojournalist who returns home to find his people in a cold-blooded uprising against the ruling King, the Shah. Your efforts to take photographs entangle you into the underground web of revolution as you meet a vivid cast of characters who challenge your morality.”

I bought the iOS version, and I’m really curious to try it out!
