Jewish game developer to market Holocaust game for smartphones


holocaust

(JTA) –- The developer of a Holocaust-themed game that was rejected by Nintendo said he is planning to release his work for smartphone users.

British game developer Luc Bernard, 26, announced his plan on the website Indiegogo, a crowd-sourcing platform that helps developers and inventors find funding for their products.

Bernard made headlines in 2008 with his game “Imagination is the Only Escape,” which he developed for Nintendo and views the events of the Holocaust through the eyes of a child.

The gaming giant eventually decided not to buy and market the game because it was deemed unfit for children, according to The New York Times.

Now Bernard says he will bypass corporations and raise funds online with a plan to release the game next year, according to a report by the news website The Verge.

Bernard’s mother is Jewish and her mother looked after orphaned Jewish children after World War II, he told the Times.

His game features the character of a young boy named Samuel during the Nazi occupation of France in 1942 who seeks to escape real life into his own fantasy world.

Bernard told The Verge that the game is meant to inspire players to read up on the history of the Holocaust.

    This is effing crazy. Complete madness. I really don’t know what to say except that I think the young jews may even be more nuts than the old ones controlling everything right now – especially with all of the propaganda their parents feed them on a constant basis.

    I knew nothing about their hollow-cause game (save the one they play on all of US, always), but, is this not in bad taste?? Does it matter?
    As long as someone gets his sheckels, I guess everything goes?

    Another very clever invention to make profit for the chosenites for their very special professional victimhood.

    I’d rather see the development of a new 3d version of “Jew Doom”, where all of the monsters are, well . . . jews.

    Just like in real life.

    What kind of a game will they make when the world finds out it is a “Milton Friedman, fractional reserve, central Jewish bank, economic model” that brought the whole world to Its knees”. How will they re-create “hide and seek”? Where is the money in that? What is the fun going to be for them? Will they be humble then? Was there ever any humility( strength) in them at all? It’s just a game. We read it all the way. It’s just a game. All we can do, is play.

    Just a wild thought.

    Why don’t they develop a game on how Israel attacked the USS Liberty and other ways Israel is doing deception.

    The Holocaust game is already played by almost all Jews around the world… At least this one would be correctly classified as a “game”. Ask yourself what is more revolting, the traumatizing holohoax tours that all Israeli children (any many Jewish children) are put through (ref: ‘Defamation’ film), or a video game that could not possibly be more violent than the already existing violent WWII video games.
