"A nation in Palestine is being uprooted: their houses are being devastated, their establishments are being destroyed, their lands are being occupied, their trees are being pulled out, their property is being confiscated, their cities are being besieged, their schools are being closed, their sanctuaries are being violated, their sacred structures are being made permitted, their children are being beaten, their hands are being broken, their bones are being crushed and they are imprisoned, tortured and slain. They are even prevented from crying and moaning. The whole world is plotting to ignore them. None hears them moan. None sees the trains of their martyrs. None says a word of support to their rights.
This is the tale of the game of "UnderAsh" in short..."
This amazing game follows the adventures of a young Palestinian man, Ahmed, and through him attempts to "deliver a collection of important ideas in the history of the Palestinian Cause.
The screenshots look a lot like an FPS.
This is fascinating to me because in a way it's an answer to America's Army... and at the same time, it's perhaps a similar recruitment/ideological indoctrination tool. It's a bit disturbing but I admit I am incredibly excited by the idea that people are taking games seriously as tools for education - whether or not you agree with the content of the education.
