Yet in asking a person to assume his place in a game, Karam makes his story engaging on an individual level, and his appearance in the videos further humanizes his story, especially through his humor...-Allison Meir, Hyperallergic.com
The game is a tale full of surprises, challenges and paradoxical humor. Abdullah recalls life before the war, a family decision that led to his departure and the perilous journey from his hometown Hama to the Turkish border through the war-torn Aleppo province. Path Out is giving insight in this real-life adventure, on which Abdullah comments through youtube-style videos in the game.
