About

The game of “Black Border” is a simulation of guarding the entrance and exit gates of the borders and the control of passports. In this game, you, as the inspector of the border chamber, are supposed to check passports and documents of the passengers.

The story happens in the imaginary country of Alanan that has recently passed its travelling laws and regulations. Its citizens have received permission to travel to the neighbouring countries and you ought to prevent the entrance and exit of terrorists, smugglers and other suspicious people.



 The main environment of the game includes a chamber into which passengers enter one by one and hand their documents to the inspector in order to be examined. The conversations between the passengers and the inspector form the story of the game.

The followings are some items which the inspector is supposed to control carefully:

  • The name and surname of the owner mentioned in all documents
  • The weight and height of the passenger and checking them against the related values mentioned in the documents
  • The validity date of the documents
  • Inspection of passengers for arms and illicit objects and prevention from their entrance to the country
  • Checking the face of the passenger against the photos in the documents

Finally, you, as the inspector, should decide to let the passenger in or not sealing the document with verification or rejection.

As the above image shows, passengers are waiting outside the chamber in order that they are let in the room and their documents are controlled; moreover, some soldiers are guarding the chamber.



The vast country of Modland collapsed, it was divided into 6 new countries; shortly afterwards, a long and intense war launched among the new countries. The war took up to 7 years, and the chief war was between two vast countries of Alanan and Denber. Finally, Alanan, having gained the technology of constructing fighters, managed to smash the military positions of Dinber. Immediately after this attack, other countries called for a ceasefire and the war came to an end.

After the end of the war, the gate between the two countries was opened upon the agreement of the parties. Prior to August 1, 1996, no foreigner was allowed to pass this gate to enter into Alanan. However, the two countries decided to put aside the enmities and open the gate. This event led to the formation of long lines behind the borders of two countries. The source of inspiration for the game of “Black Border” is the said long lines.

Following the agreement of two countries over opening the border gate, the main character of the story, named “Inspector”, is appointed to go to the related kiosk in the border of two countries for the examination of passengers’ passports. Being the head of a five-person family, he enters the Elamis city in Alanan and together with his family, settles in a non-luxury apartment with minimum equipment.

In the game, you play as the inspector who is in the border kiosk. The daily responsibility of the inspector is to be present in the kiosk of controlling passports to let passengers in or stop them. This power of choice bears some significant results. The countries and groups that have deep hostility against Alanan enter into the field and attempt to meet their evil aims threatening and luring the inspector. Sometimes, a decision made by the inspector can create a big explosion in the country, and in other cases, he can frustrate a terrorist attack. Everything depends on the decision of the inspector (you).

In the meantime, immigrants and passengers have created some specific conditions. A mother can return to her own country to see her children after seven years, however, she has not all the required documents. Or, a famous footballer whose documents have been stolen has to beg to be let in. In this situation, what will the decision of the inspector be?

There are more than 10 different ends for this game. Can you reach all these ends and find out what is the story?



The characters shown by the below image are some few characters developed during the project. The below image demonstrates six samples of the characters that are built up to this point. And, in case you support us, we can create several other characters. 

Design steps for soldier character shown by the below image.

In addition, as the below image shows, the game includes number of female characters.

Again, we hope that you support us so that we can build some more female characters.



Members of these groups, covering their face with some curious masks, enter the gate and let the inspector know their demands and mission, and you as the inspector, decide to accept or spurn what they want. 

The game has some diverse and unique ends, as you can make different decisions in this regard.



By the progress of the game, some characters with independent and unique parts enter the game; for instance, the character shown by the below image enters the gate on the 23rd day and seeks to enter the country of Alanan though he doesn’t have the required documents. In case he is not let in, he will return to the gate with arms and weapons and ...

The Mysterious but Stupid Character!

This character enters the gate occasionally repeating some absurd words and demands, however, he has an evil intention and a mysterious story behind his stupid face!


The Character of Border Guard Chief

This character, as the chief of the border guard, is responsible to observe the performance of the inspector continuously and in case of need, warns or fires him.

Soldier Character

This character, as the soldier, should protect the gate.

One day he enters the chamber and talks to the inspector on an issue, and it leads to the next events...



As the below image shows, the game employs some inspection equipment such as fingerprint scan, X-Ray body inspection and weight and height control, and these control devices are used in the related occasions.




During the game, some tempting offers are presented to you by different people, offers such as the purchase and sale of illicit commodities, and in case you accept what is offered, you can earn a good income. Acceptance or rejection of the illicit commodities by you will advance the story of the game. You as the inspector of the border chamber,  can have a deal with the passengers and buy and sell their goods! Are ready to go against the rule of your country by accomplishing this job?




Some parallel and diverse stories happen in this game, for example, You as the inspector of the border chamber, can use the specific and hidden methods for communication with opposition groups. To encoding these secret messages, you should be able to play and finish mini games on consoles.




Symbol and Flags of the Countries:

Each country has its own specific symbol and flag. This specific symbol can also be observed on the passport of each country.

Other Documents:




We have emptied our pockets during the first rounds of developing the game. To finish the development, which includes characters design, code optimization, and debugging, and plug-in purchases, we need additional support. If we reach our Kickstarter goal, we will be able to finish the game in three or four months and release it on Steam website and mobile market places.

Risks and challenges

We have worked on this project and we are confident that with additional funding we can devote all our resources to finishing the project in the next few months. Currently, we are working on the final stages of the development, namely debugging the alpha version of the game and working on sound design and music. Given that we have passed the biggest hurdles and are in the final stage, we are confident that the risk of not finishing the game is very small and close to zero.
