Kotaku reports of a new kind of simulation game will be published by Manifesto games called Pescekeeper. This new take on the simulation genre lets you play as either the Israeli Prime Minister or the Palestinian President.
Incorporating real-world events and news stories, the game challenges players to succeed as a leader where others have failed; to experience the joy of bringing peace to the region - or the agony of plunging the Middle East into disaster.
Peacemaker recently won the University of Southern California's Public Diplomacy Games Contest for it's excellent content when it was created by a Carnegie-Mellon University student. The game is one of many such games that have come about recently that deal with real world issues.
