According to Replay Studios, Survivor
will be a computer game that will allow people to "experience the most dramatic disasters of the 20 - 21th century in independent game episodes."
The goal will be not only to virtually experience these disasters, but also to see if you could survive them. Here are some of the scenarios gamers will be able to play: Hiroshima, the Titanic, Hurricane Andrew, and (of course) 9/11. Replay Studios seems to be a legitimate game developer, so I'm almost certain that the game is real. But the inclusion of 9/11 does seem odd, especially since there was a previous 9/11 Survivor game
from last year that turned out to be a hoax/art project. This article
about the game notes that "The very inclusion of the World Trade Centre terrorist attack is bound to offend a great many people, but Replay makes the valid point that this game is entirely about rescuing people, saving human lives and surviving."
Right. I'm sure it won't occur to any gamers to shoot every virtual person in their path in order to escape.
