Distract Her is a narrative game that is based on true events, and was created for the Free Palestine game jam. 

You play as a father, trying to distract your daughter from the painful reality outside of your own walls. 

Controls:
Mouse & Left Click only

Based On:
This game was inspired by a real life father that would purchase toys for his daughters, in attempt to keep them focused away from the destruction surrounding their homeland. He had a Youtube channel where he posted a video doing just this. Unfortunately, he was killed by airstrikes only days after posting the video. The date used within our game is the same date the video was posted.

A link showing the type of father he was can be viewed below.

You guys did very good creating a game that tells a tragic Palestinian story despite how short the Jam was. The sound effects were put to good use to move the player's feelings 

Thank you! That means a lot. I think we're going to revisit this topic in a future game. We're talking about it now. 

I hope you didn't experience any lag by the way, since I've been notified that some older laptops weren't running the game well at all.

I didn't experience any lag, but I am using a desktop gaming PC, so that might be the reason
