Based on Pin Yathay’s famous memories, Stay Alive, My Son is an immersive, mythical, cinematic experience let’s you become a father who survived the Cambodian genocide. The author’s heart, metaphorically represented by the marvellous temple of Angkor Wat, is in search of a missing son and personal salvation. The player uncovers hidden memories of Yathay’s story by solving various riddles while learning about Cambodia’s culture and troubled past. As the player solves each puzzle, Yahtay’s heart heals. In the same way, a nation heals from its tragic past. Spanning 45 years, this inspiring saga is a testament to a father’s unshakeable will to survive for the sake of his family and to bring justice to his country.
