‘Imagination Is The Only Escape’21 Apr 2008
The game in question is set in France during WWII and is about a boy who can see the atrocities of war around him, but chooses to escape through his imagination, hence the title.
Luc Bernard, the man behind the original idea for the game, has aired his opinions on various gaming sites saying that he’s appalled that WWII games can be made, glorifying a horrible period in time, but stories of significance and struggle won’t be published.
Bernard wants to express that not all games have to be mind numbing and that they can promote meaningful messages.
Alten8 has released a statement saying ‘Imagination’ is only in the concept stage at the moment and that Bernard’s opinions are his own and don’t reflect the views of the developer and publisher.
