Six Days in Fallujah is Still Happening

Atomic Games President Peter Tamte confirmed to Bitmob that they are still working on and planning on bringing out Six Days in Fallujah, a military shooter based on a real battle in Iraq.

Konami was originally supposed to publish the title but dropped it amidst all the surrounding controversy that came up due to the subject matter. Since then, the game was thought to be canceled, but Tamte verified to Bitmob that they're still pushing forward with it. (PC, PS3, Six Days in Fallujah, Xbox 360)

Kind of interesting that a guy who was actually in the battle came to them with the idea for the game.

Yeah. I like the idea of a game documenting the event, though I'm not sure how feasible that is.

I'm definately keeping an eye on this game. Just like with the ww2 shooters that stuck to real events like D-day and the like. The games like the new Medal of Honor and Six Days will be a nice treat! None of this fake mw2 terrorism but factual events since we are currently living it.

Haha..."fake MW2 terrorism"... :) But that's such a good point. I didn't really think about it.

I want them to make this game, if only because I think developers should be able to make any game they choose. I hate censorship in all forms.

Yes good, glad to hear its still going. This will tell the story of whats happening in which i bet all soldiers would want, for people to know what they did there for their country. I would, but of course the devs need to make it right and portray it in the right sense.

I didn't know it was ever really off.... I blame my disconnect with shooters.

If it weren't for the controversy, this game would probably be swept under the rug with the rest of the mediocre shooters out there.

In a way I am glad it wasn't stopped. Maybe this one will open some eyes about what is truely going on over there.

good to hear
i was feeling kinda bad for the guy making this, after reading about the loans taken out to make this game. i hope he gets a publisher to pick it up, or its good bye to his game company :(

I'm anxious to see how responsibly they handle the subject matter.

As long as the content isn't distastefully dramatized, I can't see much going wrong with "Six Days in Fallujah."

It's true, a considerable number of U.S. and Iraqi combatants fell during the battle of Fallujah...but that doesn't change the fact that we have a right and an obligation to accurately depict the events which shaped the battle and the War in Iraq.

There are still WW2 veterans who malign games like Medal of Honor, but that doesn't stop the developers. I don't see why Atomic should feel pressured to change the game in any way.

Oh well, great interview. I can't wait to get my hands on this title.

Good news.
I'm glad that it's still gonna happen!

This game is still in my radar. GO for the goal Atomic!

If any game could make people redefine the way they see video games it would be this game.

From the footage shown from NBC (I think) several several months ago, I thought it looked really cool. Third person definitely doesn't help with it's 'realism' factor, but it looks like a game you can play and have fun with.

Of course, I'm hoping for features that help it stand out from others. Ghost Recon would be a direct competitor.

The medium is the message. Whether or not the game makes any commentary is not the issue. I think it will open the door and future games will take those steps. This game, should it be released, willsimply open the door

Good there's too many chicken $hits in the games industry.

I'm a big fan of more realistic shooters, so to have a game based on an actual battle sounds very interesting to me.
