No, I don’t mean Tetris. Nor do I mean most of the city-building games, such as the Caesar series, where every building is built by, and owned by, the State (have you ever noticed that?).
I mean a game about Communism. A game that promotes it. Made in China.
If you think this is a joke, here’s the article: Game aims to make vintage Communism a hit with children.
To advance in this game, players won’t gun down their enemies. They’ll mend socks, lots of them, and gain points by getting appreciation letters for doing good deeds such as helping old ladies home in a rainstorm and stopping people from spitting on the sidewalk. The prize is a signed virtual copy of Mao Tse-tung’s Little Red Book.
I’d actually like to see it, though I’m sure it’ll be in Chinese…
