Against All Odds by United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees

http://www.playagainstallodds.com/

"Against All Odds" is a free online video game that lets students follow a young person's flight from oppression in his or her home country to exile in an asylum country. The game is intended to increase students' awareness and knowledge about refugees – where they come from, what situations they have faced and how they adapt to their new lives. UNHCR offers free educational materials for teachers of grades 4-12, including lesson plans, magazines, videos, posters and games.
