Antiwargame

by Michael Mateas · , 11:06 am

The Futurefarmers collective has released the online game Antiwargame. Like the controversial September 12 (GTxA discussion: 1 2), Antiwargame explores the politics of the war on terror via a game simulation. In Antiwargame you take actions such as setting your budget, sending troops overseas and manipulating the media, with the goal of maintaining a popularity high enough to remain president.

Update: More on the simulation rhetoric operating in Antiwargame can be found in the comments.
