My Child Lebensborn Positive Reviews
No words..I'm not the type that tends to do many game reviews, and I've installed a lot of mobile games on my phone but none of them compare to this absolute masterpiece. First off, the entire story plot is sensational and beautifully written. Secondly, the graphics are wonderfully made. One of the things that I love about the game is how educational it is for younger kids. You can learn about Klaus/Karin's parents and other relatives. And not only are the relatives that you learn about just "fake" but you learn about German soldiers and young Norwegian women, including topics as to why they were treated with so much disrespect. I'd reccomend this game to anyone who is able enough to sit down and play something for hours, because it's a similar concept here, to which you can play whenever you'd like. I must admit that throughout the chapters of parenting Karin, which was who I picked (as you have the option to choose the boy (Klaus) or the girl (Karin). I ended up getting myself emotionally attached to Karin, and the way that we connected all through the screen was just heartwarming. Everything is just so well done and the amounts of detail and effort that was made in this game honestly deserves an award. You may be questioning yourself as to if you should buy this game because it's 2.99$, but I can assure you that the money your paying will be worth it, espcially because it donates to charity. Well done developers. <3.Version: 1.5.1
I can hardly find the wordsI had no idea this game existed until recently this month. However, I am more than happy I chose to buy it and give it a try. I played it within 24 hours—I was absolutely hooked to the story just five minutes in. Quickly, the only thing I wanted to do was keep the child safe and shower him with endless love. Countless times, I teared up over the mistreatment he faced. It felt authentic and real. It ripped my heart up. Even the ending left me feeling helpless, yet oddly fulfilled. There is a lot of realism in this game. It hurts, but it is realistic. The only thing we can do is hope with all our hearts for the well-beings of the children in this game. To anyone looking to spend a little bit of money on the App Store, I highly recommend buying this wonderful game. It isn’t difficult to learn how to play. However, the story is rather powerful and touches on some sensitive topics, so I’d advise players to tread lightly. It had me crying on multiple occasions. Trust me—you will be unable to finish this game without loving these kids. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite mobile games ever made. It’s simply astonishing..Version: 1.5.1
SobbingWow. What a phenomenal game but what a tragic one as well. I had no idea the stigma around German children in Norway. We always hear about one side of the Holocaust but we don’t hear about the Lebensborn children. How unfair. This game is not for children though.
SPOILERS AHEAD: The things that happen to your child in the game are horrid, and although it doesn’t always outright say what happened, it’s very clear what has happened to your poor child. My child’s teacher Mr. Berg had me deeply concerned because I was afraid he had romantic/sexual interest in my child. Well it turns out yes, the poor child was abused but by the teacher that followed. This tore me up and had me furious. The game as I said earlier, never said this, but the child didn’t want to eat, bathe or be touched afterwards so it was fairly clear the teacher had sexually assaulted her during “detention.” There was also a time when the child comes home and they’re covered in urine. I don’t know who urinated on her but that truly tore me up as well. I can’t believe this happened to these children just because of their German heritage. A profound, somber game that will stick with me forever..Version: 1.6.103
Such a great game, but also so sadThis has got to be the most emotional game I have ever played. It only took me two days to get through it, but oh my god, it was worth it. I honestly feel like I learned so much more about the aftermath of ww2 because of this game. I was completely unaware of lebensborn children before those game, which is insane on a whole other level. Schools always teach us about ww2 and all that stuff, but you really never hear much about the aftermath.
Most importantly, this game just… really hit hard. I cannot say I relate to how the real children and mothers of these children felt, but I feel like I got a taste of it when playing this. There were times I really felt like Karin’s mother, so much I even forgot I was just playing a game. There were times I cried and got seriously… peeved off… because of the events that happened in this game. It completely breaks my heart that real lebensborn children had to go through this.
But there is one think I can relate to. If I was alive during the aftermath of ww2, I would adopt this child, maybe more, in an instant, and give them the best life possible..Version: 1.5.1
Great yet heartbreakingI don’t usually pay for games but this one peaked my interests. As you play the game you really feel like you are the parent speaking to Klaus or Karin. Every thing you say can effect how the child feels and you begin to want to do best for them. At times I wanted to cry because of how real the storyline is and how if it were real life you would have to make these decisions. It has dialogues that you would have with a child and thoughts that you would think if experiencing that in real life. Throughout the game I kept thinking how horrible it would be if it’s real until the end. *SPOILER*…….. It threw me off at the end to find out that this is inspired by the real life experiences of actual children and families. This game taught me about what these parents felt and their choices, the impact of the children, and an untaught event in history. In the end I want to research more because I never considered the child born of war existing and what happens after the war. This game is unique and worth playing. It’s one i would only play once because the emotions while playing it were intense..Version: 1.5.1
Absolutely Amazing!!This game was so amazing! I’d recommend to anyone who likes history, and wants to learn about what happened in the past. There are people who have wrote reviews on this and say “This game has so many bugs and it doesn’t teach anything.” They are the ones who haven’t played or are just very rude. This game shows if you want to raise a Girl or a Boy, It’s where you get to raise one of them through the time over a year and a half in the game. I don’t wanna spoil much but I really do think this game should be 5-10 dollars cause it’s just unbelievably incredible. You grow attached to the child and want the best for them. I really do recommend this amazing game.
The things that I really do wish that where there is where if the game was longer at the ending, cause I really loved having someone to take care of and cheer up when there sad. I started playing this game in the morning and it ended later in the afternoon. I’d recommend to play this fully when you are free for a while. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Thank you! <3.Version: 1.5.1
Love this game!!I started seeing this game on tiktok. A lot of people were recommending it so I went to the App Store and saw it costed money. So I was thinking not to get it however it says part of the proceeds go to charity and seeing it was only three dollars I decided to but it. I would like to say that this is a very long story game that can not be completed in a day. Witch I strongly like. Also this game has many choices making you in control of mostly what happens so you can play multiple times getting different answers and things can go differently each time.
Another thing I like is that you can choose different children to take care of! One is a girl and the other is a boy. Like I said there is many options leaving you in control however the baseline of the story continues on. I had many feeling throughout this game with the things that happened to the child. I 100% recommend this game to everyone!!! I enjoy it greatly!.Version: 1.6.103
Captivating story, beautifully executed.I can’t believe this game hasn’t gained the attention it so rightfully deserves. What an incredibly deep story and strong message. I cared for a little girl names Karin, and from the start of the game I felt that I had to protect her. The last chapter was rough…I was crying on the inside, fuming on the outside. At times, the game makes you lose faith in humanity. But there are also times when good people stand up for what’s right and you regain that trust. I loved learning about life after the war, and the life stories at the end of the game paid homage to the real victims of abuse and injustice. There are a few games that we play in our lifetime and we remember so vividly how it made us feel, how it effected us…this is one of those games for me. I had no idea it would touch me so deeply. I would love to see more from this developer in the future! I can tell this game was created from a true passion, you did a great job..Version: 1.5.1
More Than I Ever ExpectedI don’t usually write reviews but I feel the need to sing my praises for this game. It was really incredible and I couldn’t hardly put it down on my first play through. The game is very educational and contains a lot of real-life statistics and information, but I feel as though all of this info was delivered in a very organic way. It still feels like a game, not a history lesson. I grew very attached to the child I adopted, Karin, and although I know she’s a fictional character my heart still aches when I think of what she went through. The artwork is simple and charming but at the same time I was impressed that so much emotion is conveyed through the facial expressions and animations of your child. You’re forced to make some very difficult decisions as their parent and I wasn’t prepared for how serious things became in the story. I look forward to playing again and can’t wait to see if the developers make anything else as well..Version: 1.2.1
Heartbreaking story❗️Slight spoiler alert❗️I love the graphics and the way the app is presented. The story is heartbreaking. I think it is wonderful that we get to see Karen/Klaus in their best and worst times. The game felt so real and I feel so bad for the way they were treated. Realizing that this was not only happening in my phone screen, but in real life is a realization that can lead to people doing some good in the world. To anyone who has ever been bullied, stay strong. If you’re being bullied in school, you’ll probably never have to see them after Highschool anyways. This game is a wonderful piece of art. And I would really like to see more apps like this. To not only tell the story of so many that can’t speak for themselves, but to share what was going on at these times. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars. Definitely worth the $2.99.Version: 1.5.1
Beautifully writtenI’m gonna have to go out on a limb and say this is the best mobile game I’ve ever played. I installed it on a whim after hearing about it on social media, and I was instantly sucked into the story it told. I spent hours playing through the entire storyline, and by the end, I was quite literally in tears. Working in childcare, I knew this would get me emotional but I had no idea just how attached and protective I’d feel over the child I chose to take care of. There were times I wanted to reach through the screen to hug her and never, ever let go. The storytelling was realistic and immersive to the point where I got incredibly frustrated with some of the decisions I had to make. The storytelling rivals that of games like Detroit Become Human or The Wolf Among Us. To anybody considering spending the $3, DO IT!!.Version: 1.5.1
I cried at the end of this game, 5/5A excellent game, but I warn caution to those that have trauma to be mindful if they decide to play this game. I formed a connection and bond with Karin, and was heartbroken at the horrendous things that happened to her. I felt defenseless throughout the play-through that I was unable to do anything significant or to punish those that hurt her so much. The story itself made my heart heavy like someone punched a hole right through it. I would like to add…despite this being a one of the best games I’ve played I can’t play it again, I’m glad I bought this game, but I could never get myself to ever play again, it’s just too sad. I’m happy that the game goes to children who are in similar situations and need our help. This game is definitely here to educate us and to open up our hearts..Version: 1.7.101
PowerfulWhat an amazing game and experience. The story and role you play is emotionally gripping, and I found myself truly caring for little Klaus. As a parent, I connected with the tough dialog choices, as oftentimes in real life it is difficult to decide how honest to be with a child without giving them more information than they can handle. The game designers did a fantastic job providing a realistic and meaningful yet streamlined interaction with Klaus that captures the essence of raising a child, and forces you to make tough choices, like balancing work and providing care with spending quality time. I was captivated by this story, and with taking care of Kraus, and it was fascinating (and saddening) to learn about this slice of post-war history. Thank you to the development team for this powerful, educational, and unique experience. I won’t soon forget it..Version: 1.0.3
Stupendous WorkI usually never write reviews but I had to write one for the stupendous work and job the creators have put in this game if you can spare the couple bucks I HIGHLY suggest you to do so my real only “complaint” is that it is a little short maybe updates with like side missions/stories would be super cute because I honestly just could not put my phone down after I started playing I love how your choices within the game are compared with the statistics of others at the end of each chapter it really keeps me involved in it! Also the amazing story behind it to the ones who left a one star review I cannot pity you at all this was such an amazing game I just HAD to leave a review to help increase the love of this game even more! Great Job.Version: 1.5.1
I’m bad at explaining but it is really really goodGod this game is heart wrenching. You take care of this seven year old kid, and you have to watch as everyone in their life outside of the home so cruelly acts towards him/her. You see firsthand the effects that children born of war that their trauma does to them, and it’s just. it’s awful. You should definitely play this if you like interactive stories, strategy planning, and of course, gut wrenching stories. I really appreciate how much time and effort the developers put into not only making it such an emotional game, but a historically accurate and therefor educating game as well. Definitely check out their page if you want to know more about how to help the kiddos like the one you care for in this game- I know I do. Play it..Version: 1.7.101
You need to experience thisThis game is simultaneously the most heart-warming and the most gut-wrenching experience I have ever played, and it puts all other mobile games to shame. This is just true art. It outdoes so many games with millions of dollars behind it made by hundreds of people with such a simple yet incredibly effective premise. This is something every person should have, not only because it is a great experience, but also because it only adds to your knowledge of the human condition and expands your ability to empathize with people. It brought a concept often overshadowed by the rest of the war right to you, and assured you that you will never forget it. An absolutely fantastic work worthy of being kept in a museum for future generations to look back on..Version: 1.0.3
WonderfulThis story brought tears to my eyes...it was beautiful...I wanted to cry everyday when Little Klaus got home from school all dirty with bruises on him...Towards the bed of the story it made me really sad when he didn’t want to eat bathe or for me to even touch him! The story was beautiful the animation graphics were lovely and I was so sad when the story ended because I wanted me to be there when we moved so I could watch klaus hopefully get a better life....5/5 stars and if you are reading the reviews wondering if you should buy this app, you should...At first I didn’t want to waste my money on it but I’m so glad I did...it was one of the best apps I’ve ever played...so if you are still wondering whether to buy it or not I’m just going to tell you you will regret it if you don’t buy it!.Version: 1.0.3
Beautiful, poignant, and incredibly moving.It’s not often - or ever - that I write a review for an app, but this time felt different. This game was absolutely touching, and brought me to tears many times. Playing the game, it was incredibly heartbreaking to see what these children experienced, and the burdens they unfairly bore. The story of the lebensborn children was beautifully and ardently told through the narrative of this game. I was left in tears (bitter, sad, and happy) by the end. I would fully recommend purchasing this game - the story telling is amazing and the money goes to a very good cause!! (I believe to children born into war torn countries!) <3 :) Much love to anyone who has, or knows someone who has, experienced anything similar to or related to the content of this game. <3.Version: 1.5.1
A unique, heartfelt experience about bullying and the tragedy of warYou will likely never find another game that touches upon the sensitive topic that this game discusses: the fate of German-fathered children in Norway after WWII. You take on the role of the parent of such a child, raising your son or daughter in a world still dealing with the traumas of occupation. As you work to feed your new child, the complex storyline of his or her bullying calls you to care for them a best you can, using reading their body language and words, both of which are expertly written and drawn. I will not reveal how the story goes, but suffice it to say, the game is an excellent one. It’s definitely worth downloading if you want to have some real feelings and learn about about a piece of history you never knew existed..Version: 1.0.2
Amazing storyThis is by far one of the most amazing games I’ve played, and I’ve played a lot. This isn’t your average interactive story game. This is a very intricate story that will make you second guess your choices. I do think there should be a bit of a trigger warning for this game. There are some very mature situations that might be extreme for others. I played this game before on my old phone but never got to finish it. It’s definitely worth downloading and will really put you in some emotional situations (I’m a very emotional person as it is). I’ve been playing nonstop for days. It will make you really want to be the best person you can for this little virtual child. 10/10 recommend..Version: 1.5.0
Oh my godI’ve been playing random pointless app store games for years and never in my life have i paid for a game. This time i did and i was definitely not disappointed. I obsessed over the game for well over 3 days in which it took me about 7 hours to complete the game. you get to choose how to tell the child difficult things and make choices like if you are going to work overtime or how to handle a situation. i wish there were more opportunities to spend money though i ended the game with probably 2000 coins because i thought there would be more to it. A game has never made me cry more in my life. I would pay 20 dollars for this game given the chance..Version: 1.5.1
WonderfulI normally wouldn’t write a review, and even if I did, it would only be a few words. But this game is just so beautiful. The story, the art, everything is beautiful. Although, this game shouldn’t be taken lightly, I won’t spoil anything, but there’s some heavy topics. It’s heartbreaking to watch your little one go through so much pain. But also the little moments where you play ball, and draw with them make me so happy. All in all, it took me 4 hours and 12 minutes to complete the game. But even though it’s pretty short, it’s so worth it. For all the little moments, and awareness it brings. It’s truly an amazing, heart warming, and truly sad tale. But it’s just so wonderful..Version: 1.5.1
Tik tok, allowed me to find one of the most heartfelt games.I found this game recently, around 7/7/21. And I knew this fundraiser was going to to a good cause, so I purchased the game and played it. But, never did I expect such a short time, given around 6 hours could make me this emotional. I knew from the start this was going to be sad, but even till the end of which. I played Kiren, and her story-line was not what I expected, but it really shows you a perspective of a young child during this period of time. I just want to thank whoever made this, this game was a short gameplay, but it doesn’t make it indifferent. Thank you, I’m glad you made this and I was able to help..Version: 1.5.1
Wow.Maybe this hit harder because I’m German and a CSA victim myself, but this story is amazing. I’ve heard there’s a second game in the work (hopefully) because I finished the game a few minutes ago and I already miss my boy. I felt extremely connected to him and worried for his well being. It hurt when I couldn’t protect him. I worried about being able to feed him and get him toys and fixing his clothes. It’s a wonderful experience to see and I saw a part of myself inside of him. I truly recommend this game for anyone interested in such stories. WWII has always been a huge hyperfixation for me since I was a kid. Definitely will play again. Thank you Devs ❤️.Version: 1.5.1
Love it :)It’s such a great game, I loved it! I finished it in three days though, but I also love how the money that we spend on buying this game gets donated. I learned so much, and felt really connected to Karin! However, playing it a second time is never the same as playing it the first time. I wish it was a little longer or that there was a part 2 where we got to see what happened after they moved, because when it reached the end my mind filled with questions! The only reason I gave it four starts instead of five is because I wish it was a little longer, and also there was more things like adding more details, choices, options, and stuff like that. Overall, great game!!.Version: 1.5.1
Emotional..but Great Game!I seen this game advertised on social media, so of course being the person I am. I decided to give it a try. When I tell you this game broke my heart… I almost cried. It is like you get attached! You get to adopt a child that is German. You send him or her to school, but they are an outcast of the town. Very sad.. you get to raise them and help them find out information they long for and more. I won’t go into detail, I want you to figure that out for yourself. 10/10 recommend. I got a little addicted to the game and finished the game in less than a day… oops! I recommend getting this, especially if you are into history!.Version: 1.5.1
Good game but some things could be fixedI love this game it does a good job in showing how to care for a child with you also learning how to deal with the things they go through and be educated about the history of the past one thing I wish was changed was how little time you have to do things you have about 4 and then you can’t do anything else but with bathing feeding working cooking along with making sure you can spend time with him\her it’s just not enough time at least one more would be amazing! Hopefully this is something that could be changed other than that I really do enjoy this game.Version: 1.5.1
Just AmazingI’m not one to write many words so this might be short. This game is just absolutely amazing. The story is wonderfully written along with the graphics. Not gonna lie, it has gotten a few tears out of me. This is absolutely one of the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Klaus/Karin was written well and I even got very emotionally attached to both of them very quickly. This game allows you to truly feel like you are living in Norway with your child. It has gotten me very emotional and I’m glad that there are people out there helping children in these exact situations.
Well done developer’s, you all did an absolute amazing job. ❤️❤️.Version: 1.5.1
Heartbreakingly CaptivatingI’ve been on the fence about buying this game for several months since I wasn’t sure if it was worth it. Without a doubt, it is. I just spent 3 hours completing this game since 2 am. I intended to put it down after thirty minutes, but couldn’t. I won’t divulge how things happen but I sadly knew immediately when things went downhill. It was a heartbreaking story and I’ll play through a few times to get different endings. I’ve learned so much from this game about a history of a country I’m not in. My heart goes out to the survivors who experienced the torture and disappointment shown in this game..Version: 1.5.1
My child.This game is probably one of the best games Ive played on the app store. The game is heartwarming, and sometimes sad. I never really write reviews on games but this game I feel like I had too, the game is amazing, it has a great story and it does a good job at telling you the story. I didn’t really know what to think about my purchase for the game, but when I found out that I would be donating to other kids that suffer from stuff like the child in the game, kids in need, I was very happy with my purchase. I would 100% recommend at least trying the game it’s honestly amazing the story is great I would give it a solid 9/10!.Version: 1.5.1
I love this child 😭The kid is just so lovable. Every time one of them goes through something awful I start to tear up and wonder what I could’ve done better for them. I wish I could see how they got along in the new place. I hope they were finally happy. I wanted to give the child so much of my love and care. It hurt to see them cry and come home hurt and sad. This game is just so…I don’t even know how to put it. It’s amazing and extremely captivating. I didn’t stop playing it after I downloaded it! Pretty sure I spent a good few hours on it before the story ended. I love this 10/10 would recommend anyone this!!.Version: 1.5.1
No wordsI bought this game after seeing someone playing it on TikTok, and after completing the game after 5 hours, I can't count the amount of times I cried and felt so many emotions towards the whole thing. In the start I chose Karin, not knowing just how attached I would become to her, and how much the game would teach me and open my eyes. I truly would suggest this game to anyone, the story that it tells is heart breaking a majority of the time, but the connection you make with the child is sweet, and to be honest?? I am glad I bought the game, because I will definitely be playing it over and over again..Version: 1.5.1
Love it !🌟👏I was talking to my friend and she recommended this game I thought well might as well it’s 3 dollars but each dollar goes to charity I’ve had it for less than a day and it is one of my favorite games already I would definitely recommend this app for someone who likes history and likes to be a parent and make decisions and likes to role play as a parent you can work bathe dress bring your child to school and there is also a shop where you can by food and items to care for Klaus or Karin prepare for a roller coaster of emotions if you do decide to download overall a great game I am recommending WORTH THE 3$.Version: 1.6.103
Heartbreaking but beautifulThis is an amazing game and I definitely reccomend!!! It’s beautiful but it’s also super heat breaking, it’ll make you wanna hold the child and never let go. I experienced fear,anger,sadness,happiness, disgust etc while playing this and that dosnt happen often. But what’s really heartbreaking is that this is based off of true events..the over all quality was amazing too!! The art style is cool and the animation is smooth, there’s a lot of detail and it’s interesting.
To make it short, it’s a masterpiece and its worth buying, it’ll make you both sad and happy without a doubt and the quality is amazing!.Version: 1.5.1
Wow, just wow.Honestly i had doubts about this game, i thought it was going to be like every other game i’ve played but in all honesty it was a sad but good game. Having to take care of a child who knows nothing about what has went down and why they’re being treated the way they are because of their parents, not even being able to see their parents because they have moved on in their lives and are afraid of confronting what was once their past doing is sad but this game was a good way to show the reality of how children were being treated back then and ho.Version: 1.5.1
AmazingThis is a beautiful game with a wonderful story arch. i feel like it spreads such an important message and gives a unique insight into that moment of history and a side of wars hardly spoken about. i also adore the fact they took genuine stories into consideration while making this game.
my only complaint is how short the game is. while i do like that you can go back and try née answers, i feel maybe adding to the original story would be a good idea, especially since this game cost money.
one thing i’m not sure of is if the profits go to the organization that helped work on this project and provide stories. i was not able to find that information, but it’s possible i accidentally looked over it. i feel if this isn’t the case, it would be a wonderful addition to this game.
all in all, i highly recommend this game if you have a day to spend and a few dollars burning a hole in your pocket, especially for those with a taste of historical interest or learn more about a mostly forgot piece of history.Version: 1.5.1
My Child Lebensborn investigates needless crueltyJumping into the game, I had no idea what to expect. I selected Karin as my adopted child and set out on a journey to make her life the best it could be. I have never had such an emotional attachment to a character in any game until now. My Child Lebensborn Covers the difficult topic of bullying and you can recognise the effects firsthand, this game brought back a lot of memories of my past bullied experiences as a child. It took me five hours to play through the game and I felt Karins pain of wonderment as to why no one likes her.
10/10 on the story 5 Stars for character development. This game exceeded my expectations immensely..Version: 1.0.3
Heartbreaking and beautifulIt was truly a heartbreaking and beautiful story. The abuse from teachers, neighbors and children was frightening. Watching my Klaus go through horrible experiences that no child should go through was deeply painful. I finished the game all in one run, never putting it down until it was completely through. I can only imagine from what I have played through in this game. I couldn’t help but have a deep hatred for every character that did my baby wrong. 100% mesmerized. Highly recommend for anyone to use the 3 dollars and just buy the game..Version: 1.5.1
SO GOOD but..I played it twice. I instantly became attached and played til the end in one sitting because I HAD to keep playing to make sure my child would be safe.
Unfortunately, I had a DEVASTATING bug in the game where no matter how much food I’d buy or cook, it wouldn’t appear on the table and my child would be forced to starve. The first time, I thought it was locking me out of the option to feed Karin cake while she was upset with me, but later on my second play-through when Klaus got his first day of detention, I spent 200+ coins on food to feed him but came home to an EMPTY table while he was sad. It was so upsetting I had to delete the app..Version: 1.5.1
꧁Wonderful꧂Wow really i don't know what to say i have no words this game is wonderful and full of teachings for everyone i felt very bad for karin and i never wanted to say because i didn't want him to bathe her that he didn't touch her that she didn't want to eat that i didn't want to draw that It is something that he always likes to do and I feel very bad for people who have gone through these very serious problems and I only say that they do not lose my Faith in God because God does what is best for us always pray and surrender their soul and their Faith to the Lord ..Version: 1.5.1
Beautiful, heartbreaking and hopefulI played this game not expecting to feel the strong emotional connection I felt throughout my time with Klaus. I fell in love with this little boy.
My heart breaks knowing his story is true, and so many other innocent children grew up with such deep sorrow- how could they ever understand why?
The writing, art design, sound and music... everything together create a mood of intimacy and honesty.... how much do you want to share with your little one as you find out more and more details from their past? The choices can hurt- but I wanted to be honest with him. Ugh! I love this game- I recommend it with all my heart..Version: 1.0.2
I cant describe itIt’s such an eye opener on what isn’t talked about and gives such an experience, even when it’s not real I cried so many times. Even just for a game this happened to so many kids, the game covers so many topics and each choice feels so important to your kids development and how your relationship and the story will progress. I got so attached to the character, I was so scared to give him a bad ending I can’t imagine what it felt like for people that were in Norway at the time. The games amazing I wish more people knew about it..Version: 1.5.1
I don’t think I have ever loved a game moreI am not the type to normally give Reviews but after I downloaded this game I knew I had to. this game is super fun, realistic and interactive. it asks you questions and gives you options and there is no app glitches. the gameplay is 4-5 hours and does not normally repeat the same thing again. it gives you hard decisions about what to do when society is hateful. It can be very sad at times but it is also fun most of the time.Version: 1.6.103
I have never been so connected to a game before.This game made me laugh, sob, and enraged all at the same time. I felt as if this was my actual child and it was my responsibility to make my child safe and happy. I’ve never experienced anything like this in a game before, it really opened my eyes and showed me how life was actually like in those times, it broke my heart. Overall if you’re looking for a emotional but heartbreaking game with multiple endings, please play this game, you won’t regret it..Version: 1.7.101
Didn’t even load inI put five stars so it would show.I bought the game and everything and it still won’t load in.I’ve deleted it multiple times and cleared it out of my background it still won’t load.I don’t understand at this point on what to do.I’m trying to play off my iPad that might be why but I never seen anything that said something about playing on iPad.A lot of people enjoyed it I’m still trying it’s not working. That’s my experience 🙄.Version: 1.5.1
THIS GAMEThis game literally made me cry. You get so attached to you child that you really feel whatever is happening to them. It contains a beautiful and historical narrative that is just so heart wrenching and heartwarming at the same time. It breaks your heart a builds it back together many, many times throughout the game. I also love the opportunity of choosing your reaction or way of addressing things. It really puts you in a realistic position. I would really, really recommend this game. It’s worth all the time..Version: 1.5.1
My little KlausThis game broke me. I didn’t expect for it to touch me the way that it did. I agonized over every decision I made because I didn’t want to hurt Klaus but I did want to foster an open, safe, and loving relationship with him. As I played through this game I smiled, I became angry, I almost cried many times feeling the hopelessness of our situation together. It also made me think of my son, I did everything to keep Klaus happy bc I couldn’t help but see my son in Klaus; so innocent, so kind, so defenseless.
I LOVED this game, it definitely left its mark on my heart..Version: 1.0.2
Absolutely stunningThis is a great game. I loved it too much, honestly I never wanted it to end. I’m absolutely sobbing. The storyline is so intriguing, it had me hooked from less than five minutes in. The stories from real Lebensborn children tore my heart. Caring for Karin was one of the biggest stress relivers, and to see her abused broke my heart. I’m not going to spoil it too much, but there is some darker themes in the game such as abuse. If you aren’t comfortable with that kind of stuff then this probably isn’t the game for you..Version: 1.5.1
Educational & Sadly RealisticI saw this game on Tiktok and knew that I had to try it. This game teaches you the history of the Holocaust while also teaching you the struggles of bullying, raising a child, financially struggling, and even adoption and finding out about birth parents. I 10/10 recommend. It’s very worth the money and did not fail to disappoint. Thank you to the creators of this game for helping me to better understand the point of view of being in Lebensborn and what it was like. <3.Version: 1.5.1
Please make another!!!This truly is the best game I have ever played! Not only does it make you physically attached to the child, but it also shows you how hard it really is for some people. It lets you pick how you want to interact with your child, what you want to feed your child. this game it so heartbreaking but by far has the most heart touching story. It is truly incredible!! I 100% recommend spending your money on this game. I felt like I was actually raising a kid..Version: 1.5.1
Beautiful, emotionalA truly wonderful game. I learned a lot playing it and enjoyed every second. Raw, emotionally challenging, beautifully constructed..Version: 1.2.1
SO GOODThis game is so good def need more kid and new stories. I was so attached to the kid and wanted to best for her. I also felt her sadness and I find myself worried when I see her sad and dirty..Version: 1.5.1
Will there be new chapters?I just finished the game it’s so much fun I’m wondering will there be more?.Version: 1.5.1
So beautifulIt made me really feel for karin :( i hope that her life ended up greatly! its very emotional and educational, i learnt a lot and i think it’s so interesting how your choices influence how she grows up. amazing game.Version: 1.5.1
Don’t hesitate – buy it.Beautiful and I mean beautiful and utterly painful game. You become attached, bonded and in pain seeing your child go through everything and still be the kindest they can.
The feeling of helplessness can be felt heavily through the game and it sucks knowing this was and or is the reality for many ppl..Version: 1.5.1
CuteVery cute game but whenever I make a cake it disappears… I’ve wasted so much money to confirm this. I’m annoyed I paid for an App with bugs..Version: 1.5.1
Amazing!!!This is one of my favorite games ever. Playing it actually did make me cry.
I’m a huge fan of caring sims, children/animals, the like. NEVER BEFORE have I played a game where I legitimately feared for my virtual child’s life. This game is just that intense.
I definitely think you guys should add more to the story/create an endless game as well. For the people like me who love this game so much,I wish there was a way that I could play it all the time, rather than just repeating the same tragedy over and over.
Otherwise amazing game, but do wish you could play more! I finished it in a day..Version: 1.3.102
Très émouvantPersonnellement je trouve le jeux très émouvant et très bien pensé les scénarios et tout son très bien développé bref très touchant je suis contant de savoir que j’ai pas donner de l’argent pour rien :).Version: 1.7.101
It’s more emotionally effective than you thinkI’ve literally only played it once as of writing this, and oh my god I wanted to kill ANYBODY that was hurting my little Karin. I’m just really glad that I got her to a safe place because of her biological father.Version: 1.7.101
RLY GOODI cried 😭.Version: 1.7.100
Beautifully writtenI loved this game, I really hope if I were to have a family in the future my child never goes through this.Version: 1.7.100
This game was so fun!This game was beyond fun, I got kicked off sometimes but I think that’s just my device? it was so fun and sad and a reality for lots of kids. I loved this game and I hope they make another one!.Version: 1.6.103
Idk what’s the title.After may 27 is that already the end?.Version: 1.6.103
Heartbreakingly gorgeousA terrible history that is shared through an immersive tale. My heart goes out to those affected by hatred. Amazing game, simple yet heartwarming character design, and an easy yet enjoyable gameplay. I recommend it to everyone..Version: 1.6.103
It’s a good game butCan I have my money back I played this like 20 times.Version: 1.6.103
A short beautiful game, though.. not worth the 5cad tag.The gameplay is relatively simple, you care for a child through the ‘pets?’ type of game where you feed them, play with them, etc.
It’s quite resource management, trying to keep the child happy while having enough money and food to do so at the same time.
The difficulty is roughly 2/10, you can only really mess up if you don’t think ahead, throughout 80% of my first run, I never ran below the 100 gold mark.
Though the story is so short and it is not a game with lots of replayability, so after my first playthrough in which I got the desired ending, I felt a bit wasteful,
The game wouldve definitely been more reasonable at the 1 dollar tag.
It also depends on the player themselves, those who are wise will mostly make the correct choices and have little to learn from Klaus’s life, while those who are more emotionally driven might be surprised at the consequences of their words.
In conclusion, while I do lament the 5 dollar tag, It’s still an good game that tests your morality, wisdom and judgement..Version: 1.6.103
My friend was rightThis game is very sad but beautiful 😭😭😭.Version: 1.6.103
BittersweetI got so attached to my Klaus. When someone hurt him- it hurt me. I only wish I’d gotten more time with him or more time in my days for him.Version: 1.6.102
Just incredibleI went into this game unknowing what to expect and it blew me away. I grew so attached to okays to the point I got actually worried when he wouldn’t come home! This game has an amazing story and lessons things I wasn’t even aware of. I suggest this to everyone. This game is beautiful.Version: 1.5.1
Wonderful!!I really like this game but i wish there it will be more stories about different kids.I finished game about Karin and i felt so different she made me feel about kids that lived this things in real life.Thanks to owner this game….Version: 1.5.1
Loved itI loved the game it makes you feel what they feel. i just hope they’ll have another game even tho i don’t think so but it’s worth paying for it.Version: 1.5.1
Worth the moneyThis app is so good! worth the money.Version: 1.5.1
WowStrong story. Invokes a lot of emotions. Before buying, just know you’re only going to feel bad after playing this game. It’s a game designed to provoke a lot of emotions, but there’s no happy ending. Just a meh ending. Also the kid is 7 and they get beat, tied up, urinated on, and sexually assaulted. Again, they’re 7. If you get it, just be aware there’s no “happiness,” you feel after as it’s a game designed to inform you about the history of these people..Version: 1.5.1
Beautiful gameIt’s a very educational game and really shows what kids have went through but i rlly hope you guys add more plots and different endings to this game i think it could make it better then it already is.Version: 1.5.1
❤️🩹I truly love this game i finished it all but i want more🥺 this game makes me feel so many emotions and i just ugh love it so so much!😩 ❤️ i cannot wait till the next chapter!.Version: 1.5.1
A truly beautiful gameEmotional.Version: 1.5.1
Very good game. However…I do wish that we could continue the story with the player and child. Them moving away and not even having an idea what happened to them is upsetting. The game is amazing, constructed beautifully, but I wish the game didn’t end on such a “…” type of way..Version: 1.5.1
This game was beautifulI got this game thinking it was going to be fun, it was fun but it also made me realize that stuff like this happen. And honestly I don’t regret buying this game, in fact I’m starting to tell people get this. All in one this game was very awesome, thanks for making this game..Version: 1.5.1
AMAZING!!This app was so worth the money, Karin honestly feels like my real child. Just a warning that there are swears in it, like wh*re and sl*t but yeah it’s amazing.Version: 1.5.1
SuggestionsI love this game so much. I have some suggestions for the developers to add on to the game
1. More clothing
2. Different children with unique backstories
3. Ability to meet the bullies
4. A place to go play in the mud with the child
5. More hairstyles
6. A TV? (With cartoons maybe)
7. A chance for the house to get robbed?
8. Seeing the child grow up (maybe after the credits)
Thank you so much for making this game, and I really hope the developers see this!.Version: 1.5.1
Amazing game, very shortThis game was extremely addictive. The story ropes you in and will even make you cry if you’re sensitive. I think it puts parenting in to a different perspective, and I think future parents will gain an understanding in how you must nurture a child. The game was absolutely amazing, but only 4 stars because it’s so short. Very educational.Version: 1.5.1
GoodIt’s a truly amazing game that shows what it was like for some children back then 10/10.
Is there going to be more chapters though?.Version: 1.5.1
PLEASE PLAY THISPLEASE BUY THIS!! It’s an amazing game, very emotional and a lot of the profits go to kids similar to klaus and Karin. SO BUY IT! ❤️.Version: 1.5.1
Amazing GameThis game was so good at telling the story of this young child. I saw it on TikTok and decided to give it a try and it was totally worth it, this story is heartbreaking. I got so attached to the character as if she was real and I wanted to do everything to help her. I definitely recommend!.Version: 1.5.1
Amazing game - worth paying forThe lessons I learned caring for Karin were life changing. This game made me so emotional and I am forever thankful to the people who were apart of this game for sharing their stories..Version: 1.5.1
I love it so muchI used Karin and omg is literally die for her not even lying and I mean it was also close to home because I’m German and i personally didn’t get bullied but my father did growing up, especially because he had very light blonde hair and blue eyes.Version: 1.5.1
GREATIts great and i love it but please update it with more stories and new kids and maybe for a new story we could meet there parents thank you for this great game i felt so attatched to them.Version: 1.5.1
Amazing!I bought this game, as I found it on my tiktok fyp! I honestly love it! Although I wish there was more to it, as it ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. Nothing against it, just hoping for more!.Version: 1.5.1
MORE!! ❤️Really emotional it really broke my heart!! Was wondering if they are coming out with more chapters I would really love that!! Also this is worth buying it really makes you realize the hatefulness and bad things that really happen around this world and we should open our eyes and be nicer and help out to children like this.Version: 1.5.1
I love it <3Such a amazing game. Definitely worth paying the small Amount. I hope they come out with new story’s :).Version: 1.5.1
So so so real.This game had me in tears a total of 3 times. I paced back and forth when she didnt come home, my heart ached when she was upset. i really got attached to this 2D cartoon girl.
This game was very informative, beautiful, sad and just raw. 10/10 buy this game..Version: 1.5.1
Part 2I would love for u guys to make a part to of her moving somewhere else and if you do could you add some more clothes and new foods! Other then that great game loved everything about it and when I started I couldn’t stop playing haha..Version: 1.5.1
A little repetitiveBut quite educational..Version: 1.5.1
