It was bound to be made some day

Slavery the game(trailer included, site is 18+ officialy)

It looks like a legitimate game. The makers behind it are people who left Creative Assembly(from the Total war series).


What do you guys think of this? Other than that once the media gets attention of this it's gonna be a more massive media shitstorm than there has ever been of any game. Is it crossing a line?

When I saw the trailer first thing I realized was that this is an aspect always avoided in any other RTS or historical games. Even though the huge importance it had.

Plantation Tycoon?


Well, I loved Dinosaur Tycoon, and Rollercoaster Tycoon, and Zoo Tycoon, so I'll be sure to check this out as well.

It looks...massively inappropriate. You get to take and discipline slaves, as a game? Something sounds very wrong about that. Very sadistic.

I'm all for learning about the slave trade (hello year 9 history lessons) because it's a very key part of the history of the British Empire and Britain and the commonwealth wouldn't be anywhere without slaves (even the Romans and the Egyptians had them in ancient times).

I think this is kinda along the lines of making the following titles games; Holocaust: The Game, Apartheid: The Game, Suicide Bombing: the Game etc.

Avoided this issue? Really?

No, this game looks really dull, in fact they seem to emphasize on being exceptionally violent for no apparent reason and I saw no ACTUAL gameplay in the trailer.

You ask me, this is just another shitty game that everyone will get only because of the publicity, also, why the hell is trailer "18+", I saw no offensive content.

Holocaust Tycoon anyone?

My main problem with the game is that judging from the trailer, they seem to be glorifying slavery, something which is obviously still an issue today.

Hey, if someone can make money off of movies about slavery, and if schools can make money off of teaching it, why can't someone make a game about it?

You can actually pre-order that at Gamestop for five bucks. When you pre-order, they throw in extra farm equipment, I think it's worth it. You can unlock Uncle Tom's Cabin as well.

Making money isn't the reason schools choose to teach slavery. It's about the historial significance and to raise awareness. Movies only depict slavery, but with a game you're artificially taking part in slavery... for enjoyment.

You sure about that? And the second part: Watching a movie is the same thing. Paying to watch a black man get whipped.

It's more likely both, but money plays a big part.

as for the for enjoyment thing... Who the hell would enjoy that? Am I too much a moralfag?

Pretty much. It's a game, with goal and direction.. It might be controversal, sure, but so is shooting people. Plenty of games get away with that


Oh it's fine, they're BAD people so it's totally ok

They made games about what the Empire did to the Rebels. They even froze Han Solo in carbonite.

Yes, but taking part in slavery in the game just seems quite...bad. In a film, it is almost always depicted to be a bad thing i.e. the film never really promotes it. However the game is promoting violence towards the slaves: there is nothing to suggest it is wrong. I just don't like the idea of that. I don't mind shooting games, but slavery is a totally different concept to me, and one I dislike. I'm probably reading too much into it and being an arse

Quote by Harvey Swick

Money. There is a reason the most controversial artists and games make such good money: publicity. People sometimes think (read: younger kids who are desperate to play an 18+ game) of games like this as "the forbidden fruit they can actually eat".

Or, say, making games that glorify war, murder, and general and killing...

If we're allowed to have a game where I can pick up a hooker and murder her, or a game where I can spend hours and hours realistically massacring other soldiers, then I fail to see the problem with this. If you're offended by the game then, err, don't buy the game

This, like how he mentioned the holocaust game idea, takes into account racism though, so it isn't just violence: it's aimed at someone. I get the feeling that if this were a real game (which it probably isn't), there would be a shitstorm of massive proportions over this game because of that.

It's a teaser dumb ass, for a game that apparently doesn't exist.

I don't see a problem with it.

If I can run over people with a tank in GTA, go down to little Haiti and find mostly black people and start a gang war, I don't see how this game is any different.

If this turns out to be a real game, shitstorm doesn't even begin to describe what will happen.
