The World Made Playable
Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Battlefield, Company of Heroes, Commandos, Counter Strike; if you’re a gamer, these are all familiar titles of popular video games. If you’re not familiar with games then from the titles alone I’m sure you can guess their subject matter; war. If games can turn war into entertainment, then why could they not also help us to understand it? I’ve had to think a lot about the relationship between games and war, as, since about two weeks ago we decided to make a new game, not about annoyed birds or farms or words or friends, not a first-person shooter but a game about the war in Syria. So we’ve released Endgame Syria on Android and online with iOS versions to follow shortly.
