Using a rarely seen collection of footage and archive documents about boy soldiers from World War One, the team researched how to combine a game with documentary elements to make a compelling proposition for 11 – 14 year olds. They explored the challenge of creating a game that allows the story and fight for survival of these young soldiers to be understood by today's younger generation, but doesn't glorify war in the way that many first person shooters can do.
