Endgame: Syria Launched

What if one day news could be reported to you as a game? You might be wondering how you could take news and write a game out of it within such a short time… Well, by using a rapid prototyping approach, games can be developed in a very short time to reach out to as wide an audience as possible before the news being “reported” dies down. And, that is exactly how the subject matter for Endgame: Syria was tackled with just a scant two weeks of development time. Endgame: Syria is a card strategy game that simulates the events that took place in the ongoing Syrian war. (Android, Culture, Endgame Syria, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, PC)

Also worth reading:
"By making Endgame Syria I hope that we’ve encouraged some people who didn’t know much about the situation in Syria, to find out more. After all, the chances are your taxes are going into this war in one form or another. We also hope that we’ve joined the ranks of other games that have been unafraid to take on serious subjects and cover them with sensitivity. If either of these are the case, then the risk of making something controversial rather than playing it safe and making games about shooting Nazis or grumpy avians will have been worthwhile."

The Syrian 'Civil war' is a disgusting proxy war fought by NATO, the US, and Israel against Iran.

Look up the pipeline that was about to be built between Syria, Iraq, and Iran. They killed 50k people for money and petroleum.

Sorry but after following the videos direct from the 'rebels' for months on liveleak, it is painfully obvious we gave billions of dollars and unlimited weapons to Al Queada in the short sighted goal of toppling an unfriendly regime.
