Borders is an art game about the hardships immigrants face crossing the Mexican border, inspired by the stories of the artist’s parents crossing over. After a public art installation, the game received international attention and led to it’s travel to multiple Festivals across the US and overseas.

The game was created by Illustrator-Game Designer Gonzalo Alvarez , Game Designer Genaro Vallejo, and Jonathan Digiacomo as the programmer.

The game can be downloaded on Android, PC, and Mac by clicking on the icons below.
