Danny Ledonne the creator of the highly controversial game,"Super Columbine Massacre RPG!" which is based on the murderer of 13 people at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado in 1999. Shares his thoughts of the Virginia Tech shooting and answers the question that has been asked so often lately has been "will you make a game out of the Virginia Tech shooting?"
My answer is "I will not be." I will not be because it has not been something that I am personally connected to; the shooting at Columbine (which hit so close to home for me – literally and figuratively – during my sophomore year of high school) was not only an American tragedy in the broadest sense but also a clarion call for change in my own life. Having said this, one might ask if I think an interactive project (a "video game") about the shooting at Virginia Tech can be made. My answer is "absolutely." Societies throughout history have dealt with pain, tragedy, and suffering with art in a multitude of forms and ours is no exception. There will be poems about this shooting, there will be books about it, films about it, paintings about it, and indeed I do not believe the medium of interactive electronic media should be excluded from exploring the sorrows and challenges of the human experience.
