Global Conflict: Palestine

Macgamestore.com today released Serious Games' Global Conflict: Palestine, a game where players assume the role of a freelance journalist who has just arrived in Jerusalem armed with a pen, a notepad and sharp wits to navigate forthcoming challenges. Players must create an article and get it published for a newspaper by collecting quotes from dialog in the game, gathering information by building up trust with each side or taking a more confrontational approach to reveal the truth. The game includes situations taken from real-life events that complicate beliefs as well as ideas about the tumultuous situation. Global Conflict: Palestine is priced at $20 and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.

    Quick Look

    Graphics are about ~5 years old... OK but nothing special. For a "game" that is 100% about the conversations you have with folks, there is NO voice acting... oh you hear various sound effects, but interactions with the NPCs are totally silent.

    Then again, we ARE talking about a 20 dollar game. BUT without voice acting, not worth it.

    Sounds like Propaganda

    I'm sure this game will change minds in the ever evolving but never-ending battle between the Jews and the Muslims in their "homeland". If I sound skeptical, it's because I am. On record, I say Israel is a democratic ally of the United States, whereas Hamas and previous excuses for leadership in Palestine are terrorists. We should support Israel. Not sure what the game will have me believing, after I talk to a few people on the ground.

    NO you should not

    No you should not support israel, US government biased policies is what feeds fundamentalists. Why does the word "Palestine" provoke propaganda?!!!!! huh, Hamas has learned from the israeli army and practices the same techniques against innocent civilians.....israel is a raciest country that discriminates against its people based upon there religion, Hamas, Israel , Bin Laden and George Bush all fall under the same category, religion leaden extremists.......

    Israel=Peace & Democracy

    I love how this comment area has become a political debate. Perhaps it can be moved to the political forum?

    Global Conflict: NYT

    Do you get to be a New York Times reporter?

    "Hate Jews, hate conservatives and side with terrorists and illegal aliens against US interests -- just like a REAL NYT reporter!"

    I understand that at the end of the game "Pinch" Fatburger comes out with his moose puppet and thanks the player for undermining America...

    Hamas

    Erm, Hamas is a democratically elected party in Palestine - you may not like that fact, but it is a fact, the people voted for them.

    Back to the real story: is this just totally tasteless, or is it just me.

    George Wallace

    George Wallace was democratically elected governor in Alabama (after the Civil Rights Act of 1960) FOUR times. If you don't remember, he's the one who said "...segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." Among other notable racist acts. Good thing a tyranny of the majority doesn't bother you, or you might not like Hamas very much. Not sure how many Israelis have blown up busses or night clubs, but emotion and entitlement make better arguments for the Palestinian cause than violence against innocents makes against it, at least to some. Yes, clive, people voted for them. That's even more scary than Hamas alone.
