NEWS: “13 Minutes Ago”, a game about Basque terrorism


Alain Xalabarde publishes his latest serious game, an interactive story with over 13 different endings, dealing with the harsh reality of Basque terrorism.

The first session of the game may be played in less than 13 minutes, although one can only experience each minute of the story through the eyes of one character. Players are therefore encouraged to replay in order to explore different characters, try out different decisions and discover all the alternative plots.

Alain returns to a theme that has influenced his previous works, such as “El Ultimo Roble”. Being born in the Basque country, terrorism has always been close to home.

Only hours after being published, the game was featured in three major Basque and Spanish online newspapers. It has so far been featured in:

It was developed on Unity, making use of Inkle – used in other iconic games like “80 Days”. Alain used this project to push the limits of Inkle and creating a story with fragmented branches.

The game is available for free on Google Play.
