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 - Grubo buđenje - multimedijalno putovanje stopama svakodnevnog života vojnika na frontu“, evropski je projekat čiji je cilj podizanje svesti i interesovanja mlađih generacija (između 13 i 20 godina) na temu rata i mira. Uz podršku digitalnih i audiovizuelnih sadržaja zasnovanih na pričama vojnika iz Prvog svetskog rata, „Grubo buđenje“ želi da vodi novu obrazovnu i emocionalnu perspektivu o ratu i miru, pri čemu će posetioci učiti dok će se postaviti u pogled vojnika tokom posete muzeju, i na taj način bolje razumeti ratna sećanja i život vojnika zahvaljujući tehnologiji. To je projekat koji sufinansira MEDIA program Evropske unije, potprogram Kreativne Evrope, koji je okupio Fondazione Belvedere-Gschwent kao vodećeg partnera, kao i partnere na projektu Opština Lavarone, ALDA, 101 Percento, Mémoire pour la vie, Gornjesavski Muzej Jesenice, Danube Connect, World of NGOs i Makedonski centar za fotografiju.
