September 12th

With all of the anti-gaming legislation being bandied about by censorship advocates like Senator Clinton, it's nice that some people can still demonstrate that games, like any other art form, can be used to entertain, insult, inspire, or even educate. A simple Flash game called September 12th illustrates how difficult it is to combat terrorism. Take a look and roll it over in your head a few times. What does this simulation teach us? You may or may not agree with the premise or the implementation, but you can hardly escape the feeling of futility.

It took me a few cracks, but I finally nailed 3 terrorists and didn't kill any civilians.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
