According to the New York Times, Nintendo has no plans to release a holocaust-themed educational game from French developer Luc Bernard.

Bernard says his game, Imagination is the Only Escape, is meant to be educational and is non-violent. The platformer features levels that exist only in a boy's mind, basically a place he escapes to because he can't face the real life horrors that surround him.

“At this time, there are no plans for this game to be released for any Nintendo platforms in North America,” the company said in a statement. Which, if you think about it, doesn't mean Nintendo has something specifically against the release of this game, just that there aren't any plans right now for release.

When asked for comment on the unfinished game, Myrna Shinbaum, spokeswoman for the Anti-Defamation League, said that she hadn't played the game, so couldn't offer much comment, but she did remark: “We certainly believe that we have to find new ways of teaching lessons of the Holocaust as new technologies are being developed,” she said.
