Amnesty International Releases Bulletproof Video Game


Posted April 20, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

Gamers may debate whether games are art, but you can't argue that games can be propaganda. The Human Rights activists at Amnesty International today released their own video game: The hard-hitting, politically charged Bulletproof for the iPhone and iPad. Check out the disturbing trailer for the game above.

The game places you before a firing squad, in first-person, and unlike real-life, you can stop your would-be executioner's bullets instead of just waiting to die in a hail of politically motivated gunfire.  As you progress in-game, more lead is fired, the action gets faster and faster, until your inevitable demise.

It's a simple tap-your-screen game, but it's frantic and fun, and by placing the players in the place of a condemned prisoner, it really does make you feel some of the terror and isolation a State-sponsored murder would engender.

So what do you think? Cool game? Blatant propaganda?
