Kuma Reality Games have launched an online documentary gaming series about Saddam Hussein.
The latest installment (The Capture of Saddam: Operation Red Dawn) takes gamers through the town of Adwar, as they "search" for Saddam in his "spider hole."
The previous episode recreated the events that led to Saddam's war crimes trial.
Both episodes are available at www.kumawar.com.
Keith Halper, CEO of Kuma Reality Games, is quoted as saying:
"These missions allow people to educate themselves on international events that have shaped our history, while providing a dynamic forum for further exploration and discussion."
A cynic might suggest that those who play the games have little interest in educating themselves, they are merely playing them for the "buzz" that they get.
