A downloadable WW1 Experience for Windows
1915 is a short World War One narrative-driven experience that puts the player in the role of a spectral observer to the Battle of Loos of 1915.
With the ability to time travel in this interactive museum of World War I trenches, the player encounters the authentic memoirs of soldiers and uncovers the unique stories of the Battle from those who fought in it.
- Time-Travel: Observe the clash in attitudes of the soldiers before and after the Battle of Loos by time jumping between two time periods of the same trench
- Historically-Authentic Design: The visual design of this game was based off of historical research into the battle of Loos, including real quotes from soldiers who fought/died during the engagement
1915 began as my University Honours Project which discussed how the medium of games can be used to convey the harsh reality of warfare over the glorification that we're so used to seeing within mainstream war games. I believed that setting the game within a battle as tragic and needless as Loos, as part of war as tragic and needless as World War One was the most appropriate way of portraying an unglamorous representation of war.

Hey we've played your game and it's amazing!
Good job! Here's the gameplay
Amazing game, It was compelling!
Brain: Please just be happy
Me: I NEED THE SAD
Curiosity is the key!
Save game would be an asset and very helpful in order to explore and having to leave the game in order to continue where the player left off at.
Started the game first and hitting the space key as suggested. Restarted the game and it was more Intriguing and more interesting to travel through the right corridor first and continue on to the last room. You should only allow the player to explore to the last room of the corridor before allowing them to "PRESS THE SPACE KEY TO TRAVEL" before continuing into the game play . For example check out Dream of Me Demo. The player travels before getting to play in the game. This will get their curiosity up. I could not figure out to write you without posting here. Please feel free to contact me to delete this post if you cannot delete it and my suggestion helps your game performance. Spoiledsuezie7@gmail.com
Using PC windows 8 (only because I hate Windows 10 on my new laptop)..... So far screen option is difficult to toggle
Jokes aside, this is a impressive game well done!

Hey! Thank you very much for playing it! I believe that games can be one of the best mediums in portraying war from a more sombre and unconventional perspective, and 1915 is an attempt at just that! Glad you enjoyed it :)
Cool Graphics and Game is good and small :)
