Windrush Tales is an illustrated text-based narrative game from 3-Fold Games, the team behind Before I Forget. The world’s first game based on the Windrush generation. Reflecting the real world arrival of Caribbean immigrants who were invited to rebuild post-war Britain between 1948 and 1970. The game examines the hope the Windrush generation brought and the hostility they faced, as they left their home to make a new life in the ‘Motherland’. Players explore the stories of two characters through an interactive photo album and branching narrative, allowing their choices within the game to lead them to one of many endings.
Co-founded by Chella Ramanan and Claire Morwood, 3-Fold Games is a micro studio, focused on challenging what games can be and the types of stories they can tell. Their debut game Before I Forget was released in summer 2020 and received BAFTA and Games For Change nominations in 2021 and a metacritic score of 88. The game was later released on Switch and Xbox. Windrush Tales is the second game from 3-Fold Games.
