* 1979 Revolution: Black Friday *

This is an “adventure interactive drama video game”. Players control Reza Shirazi, an aspiring photojournalist, who returns to Iran amidst the Iranian Revolution. As he becomes more involved in the events of the Revolution, Reza is forced to make decisions in order to survive.

Players make timed responses throughout the game, determining the outcome of the plot. They are tasked with taking in-game photographs of their surroundings and given the historical background of the events.

At release, 1979 Revolution was well received by critics, with praise particularly directed at the narrative, characters and performances, and historical representations, though some criticism was directed at the quick-time sequences and visual quality. The game was nominated for multiple year-end accolades from several gaming publications.
