A downloadable game for Windows

A semi-documentary first person shooter about five different-but-similar stories, the people behind them, and a tank each of them claim they destroyed. Estimated playtime: around 10 minutes.

Based on an actual incident during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and the tank that became a local legend.

Inspired by Asaf Inbari's docu-fiction book, The Tank (which, unfortunately, has yet to be published internationally).

משחק יריות מגוף ראשון, קצת תיעודי, על חמישה סיפורים דומים אך שונים, האנשים שמאחוריהם, והטנק שכל אחד מהם אומר שהוא עצר. משך המשחק הוא כ-10 דקות.

מבוסס על הקרב על הדגניות בעת מלחמת העצמאות, ועל הטנק הסורי שהפך לאגדה מקומית. בהשראת ספרו של אסף ענברי, הטנק, שנוגע באותו נושא.

I always thought a game like this about one of Israel's wars would be interesting but figured no one would ever make one due to the controversial subject matter. Thank you for making this.

Thanks! Really the main motive behind this game was my interest in forgotten history and the extremely intriguing conflicting narratives/Rashōmon situation that stemmed out of this event. The gameplay doesn’t take itself particularly seriously to boot, which I think helps soften the controversy blow.
