Without political or religious motivation, Reza begins his heart of darkness journey into social upheaval. Surrounded by a group of impassioned key figures involved in overthrowing the regime – Reza’s engagement becomes a high stakes chess match of decision making – whereby everything is at risk."

How do you consume stories? Books, movies, tv, video games, all of the above? 🕹📚📽📺 Why not all at the same time?! The future of storytelling is evolving through Virtual and Augmented Reality, and INK Stories is at the forefront of this innovation. 🙌 Today in #MeetDumbo, say hi to the iNK Stories team! Called “an Innovation Agent” by Fast Company this team is pushing the boundaries of immersive storytelling–with experiences that drop you in the middle of Syria, or place you on a fire escape in New York for a bit of voyeuristic fun, and more. 🚀 iNK Stories is taking us into the new decade, and we're honoring them along with a dozen Dumbo Futurists with a 2020 Dumbo Dozen Award! 🎖 We sat down with the team to discuss new projects, how to reach a wider audience, and the impact interactive stories can have. ☝🏽

je voudrai bien acheter c jeu mais je n arrive pas a l avoir en francais
When are you going to admit you've plagiarized Derek Delgaudio and In and Of Itself?
Shame on you! Blatant and disgusting ripoff of Derek DelGaudio.
I'm very disappointed that you would ripoff the incredibly creative Derek DelGaudio and Frank Oz
Please acknowledge that one of your recent creations was an idea stolen from Derek DelGaudio's "In and Of Itself." The cards reading "I Am..." posted on a large board are clearly just a color-swapped replica of his. This is obviously unethical and you owe him an apology. https://www.facebook.com/brownpoetry/photos/a.147881141937854.31264.140203169372318/1718024461590173/?type=3&theater http://inandofitselfshow.com/#about
I have some new suggestions for your Sundance Cards: “I AM A PLAGIARIST” “I AM A THIEF” “I AM UNORIGINAL” Just a few to get you started... maybe people in the comments can add some more??
Aren't you the guys who stole from Derek DelGaudio?
Hugely disappointed in your decision to blatantly rip-off a major element of Derek Delgaudio's hit show as part of The Hero Experience. Stopping now, and making a public apology, would be appropriate.
If you would, tell us how you went about stealing Derek Delgaudio's work. Thanks in advance for your craven failure to respond.
Please make more chapters of this game!
I recently played this game. It shook me up and crawled under my skin. As a game, it is exciting, it's like you're really being part of the story. As a history lesson it's very interesting. It really gives a fascinating inside view of Iranic history and culture. And from politics point of view it shows how alarmingly easy human rights are violated. And that this can happen everywhere. All western teenagers should play this game. Maybe it will increase insight and reduce anxiety so we can strive for a better world.
