Do you dream of going back in time and joining the Hungarian Revolution? Would you like to recuse wounded revolutionaries, duke it out with the secret police, and escape the onslaught of the Red Army?
Interactive gaming company Lauer Learning provides a reasonable—and much safer—facsimile of the experience through FF56, an “interactive graphic novel” that throws you into the midst of the 1956 uprising.
The innovative game “mixes rich, historically-accurate narrative with first person gaming. Learn through this immersive story as it literally drops you into the streets of Budapest to struggle alongside the heroic characters that fought for Hungary's freedom, despite the overwhelming odds.”
The game is also available packaged with The Hungarian Freedom Fighters of 56 a traditional graphic novel telling the story of three young freedom fighters during the revolution.
I'm going to try to get my hands on a review copy, and will let you know how it goes.
