With a set release date for March 31, 2022, Black Border: Border Simulator Game, is as the name states a simulator. The title is published and developed by Bitzooma. It will be available on PC and tasks the player with assuming the role of a border patrol officer.
Serve and Protect
The title of the game is pretty clear on the concepts behind the gameplay. You are a border patrol officer tasked with ensuring that all entries and exits are legal. At the same time, it is your job to ensure that your country is safe by stopping crime in its motions. This means that aside from patrolling, you also have to deal with criminal organizations, wanted felons, illegal immigrants, and all sorts of passengers up to no good.
Here we also get to simulate the interactions with law-abiding citizens by checking their paperwork and confirming their identity and good nature. Most of the activities in the simulator are associated with the day-to-day of real border patrol units. Verifying documents, descriptions, validity of passports, and researching passengers is all part of the job. On top of those mechanics and the clearly methodical procedures and paperwork, following your intuition is also necessary to protect your country.
For The Country
Black Border: Border Simulator Game, is a game that offers distinct game modes to keep players engaged.

On top of that developers are constantly updating the game, and have promised new story modes, as well as a new game mode where patrolling is endless.
The game itself has a very simple design and it comes in the form of panels, there is little action to be had in gameplay. And most of it comes in the form of puzzles and choices made by you, given the information you have. The game has low-performance requirements which means that most gamers with a PC will be able to experience Black Border: Border Simulator Game.
For fans of the simulator genre, that have an interest in how border patrol actually works, this looks like a promising title. Especially because the developers appear happy to support the game, and receive feedback to improve it constantly.
Black Border: Border Simulator Game is a game designed and developed with a very specific market in mind. Therefore, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, maybe because it is a slow-paced game that revolves around player decisions throughout its entirety. And maybe because patrolling borders isn’t something very enticing to many people, or even attractive to bring in curious players. The gameplay simplicity and puzzle-like nature might also be something that eventually dissuades players from replaying the game since it also deviates from the traditional simulator genre.
