Ethics and Indigenous Australians

Deal All

Some of you may have seen in the news or on social media a protest when it became apparent that a virtual game produced by NIL Entertainment, apparently called on players to ‘kill aboriginals’ A petition was created via Change.org that called for companies such as Amazon and Google to remove the game from their sites. [I signed the petition]

Hi All,

Killing Aborigines does break the guideline, if it was a history lesson instead of a shooting game and it showed the after effects it might be acceptable? Other games are usually fighting for freedom, this games premise is hostile invasions and that should never be approved. The danger is this kind of game could go viral because it’s the outrageousness and I totally agree money talks, Apple and Google should be more responsible.
