"Columbine" maker responds

The creator of Super Columbine Massacre, Danny Ledonne, has told a Canadian TV show that he feels no guilt for having made the game. The homebrew project was recently implicated in the shootings at Dawson College in Montreal. Speaking with Canoe Live, Ledonne said that what he really feels is "regret for a young man that had lost touch with reality and just seemed to really have no grasp on any kind of moral compass." Ledonne also felt a need to explain the game's concept once more. "Frankly I made my videogame because videogames have become one of (society's) scapegoats...I was a student in a Colorado high school at the time of (Columbine)...videogames were being blamed for the shooting when investigators said there were so many warning signs that needed to be addressed."
