> In a description of the game, the developer boasted that users could “exchange, buy and sell slaves”. It also allowed players to inflict various forms of torture on black characters.
According to images of the game, users were offered a choice to either liberate the enslaved characters or “use slaves for your own enrichment. Prevent the abolition of slavery and accumulate wealth”.
>At the time of its removal, the game had a rating of four out of five stars, with one review reading: “Great game to pass the time. But I think it lacked more torture options.”
Not saying that slavery was a good thing but at the same time, banning games about it is kinda not benefiting anyone?
A simulation “game” where every player had to manage life as a slave could be eye-opening for many.
At the civil rights museum in Atlanta, GA they had a simulation where you sit at the “whites only” counter of a coffee shop, put on headphones and listen to people berate you for being black. I watched the expression on my kid’s faces as they experienced simulated racism. It was a powerful moment for them and we still talk about it.
Why were all the slaves black?
Finally, a game made for gamers.
I have questions. Was this available outside Brazil? If so, were people in other countries ok with it?
The article forgets to mention that the owner of magnus game is Andrej Kardashov and he is ucranian.
Next up, a Holocaust simulator where you build concentration camps.
Muricans making games where they murder middle easterners, Chinese, Russians or centeral asians: “iT’S jUsT a gAmE, gRoW uP!”
There are a shit load of strategy games where you can use slavery, but it’s pretty fucking tasteless to make a whole game about it.
