21 Days - Adding German and Spanish Translations, and Controller Support!

Hi everyone,

This is probably going to be the last update to 21 Days, so we wanted to make it count. We are adding full support for both German and Spanish Languages to the game. Hopefully this will help spread interest and let more people experience the game. We've also updated the English translation, added Controller support(partial), and did a much-needed balance fix.

Thanks to both our amazing translators Altaire Valdés and Iris Schäfer, and to Max Dohme of Crunchy Leaf Games for his support organizing the update.


* Added Spanish translation by Altaire Valdés

* Added German translation by Iris Schäfer

* Updated English Translation

* Added XBox Controller Support for Windows (partial)

* Balance Patch: Mental state takes damage when hunger state is zero

For this coming week, the game will be 50% off. We hope you enjoy the game, and help spread the word about it.

Thank you!

About the comments and discussions

Hello. This is Hardtalk Studio.

First of all, we’d like to say thank you for all the interests you show to our game <21 days>. We are aware of the all the comments and discussions in the community hub. We feel sorry for not having replied for every comments you shared with us. By the way, among many comments criticizing our game, many are expressing negative political opinions about refugees, especially about Muslims. We, developers expected our game to arouse wide and various discussions about the refugee issue, which has actually come true (at least in Steam).

Of course, we feel very sorry for the terrorisms that have happened over few years in Europe. We STRONGLY condemn terrorisms as non-humanitarian acts that can be never forgotten and forgiven. But we, through this game, are not to tell a naïve story that we should just accept and have pity on refugees (mostly Muslims). It is obvious that what’s happening now in Europe and Middle East is much hotter, colder and crueler than the reality expressed in this game. Also, as not all refugees are not terrorists, not all refugees in Europe may not be working hard to settle in foreign countries. And as you all know, Europeans show two contradictory stances about refugees.

However, we want you all to keep this in mind: we, developers do not intend to just support or oppose ‘refugee acceptance issue’. But we want to stress that refugee problems are much about everyone’s problems. In the end, what we’ve tried to talk about is the issues about ‘You and I, you and us’. This game is never a perfect game, we know that. If you make any comments about the game, we would readily listen to your voices. However, it’s our hope that discussion page is no more covered with any outspoken insults about refugees.

Additionally, 5% of net income of <21 days> will be donated to UNHCR.

Thank you very much for all the attentions you have shown to our game.

About This Game

21 Days is a simulation adventure game in which you experience the life of a Syrian refugee. The main character is a Syrian man named Mohammed Shenu who escaped from Syria to Western Europe. Becoming Mohammed Shenu for 21 days, you have to manage money, time, hunger and your mental status. You may experience the life of refugees who hold on to their body and soul with only a faint hope. From now on, you are Mohammed Shenu.


Mohammed Shenu is a Syrian who just arrived in Western Europe. He has luckily been granted 'refugee status'. However, this is not where story ends. His wife Warda and his son Abdul are also on their way to Europe. Fortunately according to 'The Principle of the Unity of the Family' (UNHCR), he and his family can both live together in Europe with refugee status, but only if they can arrive there. So, Mohammed now has learn to handle himself in this foreign society, and to earn money, so he can help his wife and son escape.


You will have to manage many things:
  • Keep Mohammed fed, so he has the energy to work and go about daily tasks
  • Find work, so Mohammed has money for food and other necessities
  • Don't let your mental status deteriorate, or Mohammed will not have the will to continue on
  • Learn the country's language, so you can communicate and get things done
  • Support your family with money, so they can survive on their dangerous trip to safety

There are about 15 locations you can visit. At each there are many NPCs that you can interact with. Some are kind and honest people, who's reaction to you depends on your relation to them and the current political climate towards refugees, but some will have prejudices and spread hate, and some will even try to lure you into a dishonest life. Each of them has their own story, and will help you better understand this foreign country you've arrived in.
