How do the choices we make affect our lives? The lives of our families? The world?
Amira's Blessing is a single-player, 2.5D game that is fundamentally about family and the consequences of choices that echo through generations. Play as Micah, a twelve-year-old boy living with his mother and grandmother, twenty years after Moses led the Hebrews across the Red Sea (per the biblical story of Exodus). In the game, Micah can interact with other characters such as Talia (his best friend), Batya (his grandmother), and Asher (a father figure to Micah). Players will struggle with the moral complexity of choices that have no clear “right” or “wrong”. They will navigate and deal with the consequences of such impossible choices. What will you do?

[December 11, 2021] HELLO! We're so excited that Amira is live!!! Please be aware that we are having some strange issues with the canvas on computers that run macOS -- both in the browser-playable version, and the downloadable MAC file. Soooo if you're not on Windows, the game might look a little funky.
