Refugee: Searching for Hope

Become a Volunteer and save a Refugee from the Shadow of War





A Refugee tries to escape from the "Shadow of War".

Unite forces with your fellow companions and guide the Refugee to a new life!

Refugee: Searching for Hope is a cooperative game, where one to five players must work together to gather resources, build structures to ease their path, and guide the Refugee outside of the dangers; meanwhile the “Shadow of War”, chases all of you, destroy everything on their path.

A game with unusual mechanisms!
  • Move on a single track as far as you can! But beware… you cannot go back!
Make a safe path
  • Build structures with the resources you will find on the pathway, make use of them and ease your mission.
Find balance
  • The further you go the more resources you will discover, but also the building costs will increase!
Search for Hope!
  • Hope is the most valuable resource of the game, it can be used as a wild resource and open the path but also is the most fragile!
Escape the Shadow
  • The Shadow of War will chase you destroying everything on its path, only Campsites can delay it… but not for too long.
Embrace selflessness
  • The priority is guiding the Refugee to the end of the path, into a shelter. No matter the sacrifices.
Help a cause
  • We’re committed to help the cause, so, we will be making an annual donation to a Refugee Organization for the lifetime of this product. This donation will be based on gross retail revenue each year.
