There’s no doubt that we live in a sick and depraved world at times, but in case you were still seeing nothing but sunshine and rainbows, here’s a little story that’s guaranteed to pull your head out of the clouds and bring you crashing back down to reality.
Apparently a video game company is about to release an extremely disgusting and disturbing game that allows players to be an “active shooter” at a school.
This, folks, proves that what’s wrong with our country isn’t the guns, but the culture we live in.
The BBC reports:
According to its listing on the Steam video game store, the software lets players “slaughter as many civilians as possible” in a school environment…
…The school-shooting game is described as “realistic” and “impressive”. And the developer has suggested it will include 3D models of children to shoot at.
Users are given on-screen stats informing them of how many civilians and law enforcement officials they have killed during their shooting spree.
Charity Infer Trust called on Valve, the company behind Steam, to remove the game before it goes on sale in a couple of weeks.
“It is horrendous,” a spokesperson for Infer Trust said. “Why would anybody think it’s a good idea to market something violent like that, and be completely insensitive to the deaths of so many children? We’re appalled that the game is being marketed.”
Oh, but don’t worry folks. The good people who developed the game have posted on their website “not to take any of this seriously,” and released the following statement:
“This is only meant to be the simulation and nothing else,” the warning states. “If you feel like hurting someone or people around you, please seek help from local psychiatrists or dial 911 (or applicable). Thank you.”
Apparently this is somehow supposed to make this disgusting and insensitive game morally acceptable since it’s a “simulation.”
People are coming out of the woodwork to demand the game be taken down and rightfully so:

It’s grotesque shock for shock’s sake. Sounds like a developer wanted to trade controversy for free marketing.

This company should face the wrath of everyone who cares about school and public safety and it should start immediately. Do not buy this game for your kids or any other game made by this company.https://t.co/LbkXy0upwc

What in the world is wrong with people? Who could’ve possibly thought a game like this would be a good idea, something that would be morally acceptable? It’s disgusting.
The harm a game like this is probably causing the parents who lost children in these shootings is unfathomable, and what’s worse, it doesn’t seem like the creators of this travesty even bothered to think of the impact on other people this piece of garbage would have.
If they truly want to make this right, they need to remove the game and issue an apology.
