'My Child Lebensborn' Comes To PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch

My Child Lebensborn is a WWII adventure with an emotionally impactful story about the suffering of unexpected children fathered by occupying soldiers in World War II Norway.

You play as the ward of a young Lebensborn child in Norway after World War II. But parenting is hard when your child grows up in a hostile, hateful environment.

The game shows a different side to war – how hatred towards an enemy creates war victims even in peacetime. You take part in the journey of a child, going through devastating moments in his/her life.

Taking the nurture genre and adapting it to a serious tone, the game can be compared to a mix between “My Talking Angela” and “Papers Please”.

What do you say to a child that is hated? Play through real events. Help Klaus or Karin cope with the heavy inheritance of German soldier genes in a country celebrating its freedom. Can you make a difference?

VP of Business Operations, James Seaman had this to say on bringing this title to a worldwide audience: “My Child Lebensborn is one of those rare games that inspires its players to continue thinking about it long after they put it down. It’s a very special game, and we want to bring this story to as many players as possible.”

Critically renowned for its elegant handling of mature topics, the game recently won the prestigious Games Beyond Entertainment Award concerning important social or political themes in game.
