A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
A story-driven adventure about choices and consequences, chaos and order, where you are dropped into the world of a real revolution.
1979 Revolution: Black Friday is a choice driven, narrative game that brings players into the brooding world of a nation on the verge of collapse. Playing as Reza, an aspiring photojournalist, you make life and death decisions to survive the gritty streets of Iran in the late 1970’s. 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.
