Most trafficked girls never return home. Even if they break free, their families don’t always take them back…
“…really touching and heart wrenching.”
MISSING is a Role Playing Game designed to put players in the decision making seat and allow them to experience what a ‘missingirl’ goes through when she is trafficked into cruel world of prostitution, a world into which millions of girls are lost every year. Players assume the role of the missing person, making choices and assessing risks for themselves to find their way to freedom. Now more than ever, game developers have realized that they can use the gaming environment to shine light on important real world issues. Our game developer Satyajit travelled with the artist, Leena Kejriwal, to different red light districts in Kolkata to get under the skin of the issue. He worked with us through the ground research phase and interacted with
survivors to understand the horrors of being trafficked. Genre wise, MISSING is a mix between adventure, puzzle and RPG. It is developed in a responsive way so that it can be released in multiple platforms. Primarily it’s targeted at Android, IOS and PC. The game is intended for a mature audience, and aims to expose the player to the dark world of human trafficking and raise awareness about trafficking. The game was launched in October 2016. We were overwhelmed by the response.
