Being is an abstract adventure game that explores, from a future lens, the past and present of the Palestinian lived experience. The player controls an avatar from the distant future of Palestine on a mission to recover artifacts, memories, and messages from a mysterious house near an old border. The game's aspiration is to convey various aspects of living as a Palestinian during the past century, ranging from perpetual grief to enduring hope.

Being was a part of Art Palestine International x Babycastles exhibition, Over the Rainbow, which showcased Palestinian art resonating out of the unique and valuable lived experiences of Palestinians --
both in the region and the diaspora. The show ran from March 16th to April 17th, 2017.

I really like the game so far. It's hard to read the text but I can basically get it. I also have a hard time knowing how to use the items. It says numbers like 1 or 3 next to the item, but when I stand next to the tape, and press 1 or 3 to use the photo pieces, nothing happens. I feel a little stuck.

hey there, thanks for playing! I'm glad you like it but sorry to hear there are some issues ~___~

> you don't actually have to use any of the items; the game will allow you to progress naturally as you get them.

> sometimes rpg maker 2k fonts come out looking completely different on people's machines -- not sure why this is but it's a known system issue, you can download a font patch here that should fix it: http://www.indiedb.com/games/the-sewers/downloads/...

hope this helps! please feel free to comment again if you have any more questions <3
