If you were to flee Syria to Europe, what choices will you make for your escape route to safety

The Syrian Conflict has forced many of Syrians to flee their home country due to the violence and political turmoil. Many risk their lives to seek refuge in neighboring countries, and some pay traffickers to take them to Europe. However, the uncertainty of this journey may result in safety, capture, death or deportation. The game's routes, options, and outcomes are based on interviews with real stories by BBC Arabic digital project.
