An interesting, independent game from Serious Games Interactive is about to be released. It’s a continuation of the “Global Conflicts” series, and it has nothing to do with the one made by 2K Games. But rather, it deals with the conflicts plaguing Latin America. This adveture-RPG challenges players with topics rarely covered in most games.
In real life you can’t go over to another country and kill a certain terrorist named the “Jackal” and expect the entire country to turn around. When politics and corruption is the prime culprit for running a country, it usually requires politics and corruption to bring a change. This is where players come in. Working as an investigative journalist, it’s up to players to turn the tides against the rising threats of violence, the overflowing torrents of poverty, and the wave of intolerable political degeneracy in Latin America.
“Global Conflicts: Latin America is not your ordinary computer game. What distinguishes it from many other games is that players actually take something with them from the gaming experience, which has relevance in the real world. Often reality is more cruel and brutal than what you can make up and we want engage people by taking video games beyond the killings of orcs and aliens” says CEO Simon Egenfeldt-Nielsen.
The game actually takes accounts from real people in the region, as players must use wit and cunning to bring rotten businessmen, corrupt law officials, fascist landowners and depraved politicians out into the public with revealing and just articles. It really is a fascinating concept for a game, and it makes me wonder why the imperialist nation known as Electronic Arts has yet to come up with something like this.
Anyway, the game is due out on October 23rd, and is available in a number of different languages. You can visit the Official Website for more information on the game. And remember to stay tuned in with Blend Games for more news and info on the latest titles.
