My Child Lebensborn Game

What is the “My Child Lebensborn Game”?

The “My Child Lebensborn Game” is a story-driven nurture game. It is about to help the child of an enemy in a post-war society. The video-game was initiated by the CBOW project.

The “My Child Lebensborn” game has so far sold over 1 million copies and has won the prestigious BAFTA award for “Games Beyond Entertainment.” Teknopilot AS and Sarepta AS are donating part of the proceeds from the game to found The Children Born of War Project so that the engagement of millions of players worldwide can be transformed into actual help for the CBOW of today.

For over two years, a team in Norway has been working on developing the mobile game that aims to tell the story of what happened to the Norwegian Lebensborn children after WW2. They are also making a documentary film that will be finished next summer. They are working with the Lebensborn children in order to create a representative story. The game is now almost ready, and they wish to give our network the opportunity to play the beta version and give feedback on the experience. Their hope is that the game can serve as a good way of communicating som of the common challenges for CBOW and thereby be a tool for awareness. Feedback from this research network would be much appreciated.

The game is available both for Android and iOS, and by registering on this link you will get an invitation to the beta testing system for a free download of the game.

Producer Elin Festøy is also eager for all thoughts and suggestions as to how the game can be of use. She can be reached at

Description of the game

My Child Lebensborn is a story-driven nurture game – a dark tamagochi – letting you experience the fates of children born of war. You experience a different side to war – and see how hatred towards an enemy creates war victims even in peacetime.

The game tells the real stories of Lebensborn children – how they were discriminated against just because of their heritage, how they were seen as ‘the enemy’ even though they took no part in the war. Most of them didn’t even meet their real parents. They were hated, seen as ‘nazis’ instead of what they really were – innocent children.

My Child Lebensborn was created as a part of the multimedia project between Teknopilot & Sarepta studio – aiming to spark knowledge and discussion around the unknown history of children born of war. The game won a BAFTA in “Games Beyond Entertainment” category in 2018, and is seen as both an educative and fun experience for all ages.
