Let’s enter the universe of The Rude Awakening project and put our feet in the shoes of the First World War soldiers!

The European project, The Rude Awakening, is presenting the video trailer of the main output of the project: a video game about life during the First World War. Indeed the project was created with the purpose of narrating a serious theme such as the First World War from a different perspective, merging a unique and light drawing style inspired by Valiant Heart with real-life stories, in a single player experience of 4-5 hours of gameplay.

→ The first World War from a new perspective

Differently from other wargames, The Rudes Awakening retraces the historical events from a completely new perspective: from the claustrophobic situation inside the forts, to the devastated everyday life of small towns near the front, to the collapse of the hospitals caused by the Spanish flu pandemic. 

→ Unique historical material

The collaboration with 9 European partners gave the creative team the opportunity to draw on historic materials belonging to different museums in 4 different countries, inaccessible elsewhere.

→ Learning at the core of the project

The video game is composed of 4 episodes in 4 different places and explores the various aspects of the war, not only the war taking place in the front line but also the people working behind the lines.

About “The Rude Awakening” project

" The Rude Awakening - a multimedia journey in the footsteps of frontline soldiers' everyday life ", est un projet européen qui vise à sensibiliser et intéresser les jeunes générations (entre 13 et 20 ans) sur le thème de la guerre et de la paix. Grâce à des contenus numériques et audiovisuels basés sur les histoires des soldats de la Première Guerre mondiale, "The Rude Awakening" veut ouvrir une nouvelle perspective éducative et émotionnelle sur la guerre et la paix. Les visiteurs apprendront par la pratique en se mettant dans la peau d'un soldat tout au long de la visite du musée, ce qui leur permettra de mieux comprendre les souvenirs de guerre et la vie des soldats grâce à la technologie. Il s'agit d'un projet cofinancé par le programme MEDIA de l'Union européenne, un sous-programme d'Europe créative, qui a réuni la Fondazione Belvedere-Gschwent en tant que chef de file, et en tant que partenaires du projet Municipalité de Lavarone, ALDA, 101 Percento, Mémoire pour la vie, Gornjesavski Muzej Jesenice, Danube Connect, World of NGOs et le Macedonian Center of Photography.
