Escape From Woomera is a modification of the PC game Half-Life. It was developed in 2003 by an Australian-based group of professional game developers, digital media artists and an investigative journalist.
The game recreates, based on original research by the project team's journalist, the environment and living conditions of the Woomera Immigration Reception and Processing Centre.
The make-up of the team behind Escape From Woomera was considered key to the concept. The project brought professional game developers together with "game artists" and an investigative journalist.
