Games get political

Games get political

Two interesting video-game-turn-political-statement:

Wolfengitmo
wolfengitmo.jpg
WolfenGitmo is a Guantanamo Bay mod of the classic 3D first-person game Castle Wolfenstein. In WolfenGitmo, your hands are bound and you have no weapons, so you merely run around and get mauled by dogs and beaten up by soldiers.

simple mod combines an old game with recent history. Using a game engine to present historical reenactment is a little different from watching something on the History Channel, as the audience has some degree of agency. I've had some comments about this being in poor taste/political, and I hope that people can see it as an investigation into how games can comment on more serious topics.

(Thanks Andy!)

Dead in Iraq
deadiniraq1.jpg
Began in March 2006, which marked the 3rd anniversary of the Iraq invasion, Dead In Iraq is a sort of memorial/protest in which the artist logs into a US Army online recruiting game and type names of service person who have lost their lives in Iraq.

I enter the game using as my login name, "dead-in-iraq" and proceed to type the names using the game's text messaging system. As is my usual practice when creating such an intervention, I am a neutral visitor as I do not particate in the proscribed mayhem. Rather, I stand in position and type until I am killed. Upon being re-incarnated I continue to type.

To date, I have input just over 250 names. I intend to keep doing so until the end of this war. As of 4/28/06 there have been 2,397 American service persons killed in Iraq.
