Last week, a rather legitimate looking website popped up for a a management game called Slavery – about disciplining and exploiting slaves to become â€œthe world’s most powerful slave trader.â€ The game, according to its page and accompanying trailer is headed for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and the page is littered with the respective platform holders’ insignia, something I suspect Microsoft and Sony won’t be too keen on, given the controversial subject matter.
It also says it’s been rated â€œAdults Only,â€ by the ESRB – which would make it the first and only game for current gen consoles to achieve that certificationâ€¦save for the fact that no such game exists according to the ratings board. It all goes nowhere; the games makers, Javelin Red Gaming doesn’t seem to exist, and the telephone number on the site, based in Kentucky – a US state built on slave labour – redirects to voicemail. What on earth could it be? An ill conceived internet troll attempt? A way to build up hype for some other game or cause? Either way – I’m glad it’s not a real game. Probably.
