Portbliss,the developers of the game, told TOI in January last year that “a gameplay cannot portray a liberation war properly”. Yet, the developers visited the National Liberation War Museum in Dhaka and drew on their research. They shaped both the story line and the assets of the game. The stories are drawn from real narratives of those who fought in 1971 and the developers made 3-D models from sketches of everything from uniforms to weapons.
