V-Tech Rampage

"Attention angry people, I will take this game down from [casual games site] Newgrounds if the donation amount reaches $1000 US," designer Ryan Lambourn wrote to visitors who found his simulation of the shooting at Virginia Tech in the US this spring offensive.
Emerging shortly after Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people in a campus shooting spree, Lambourn's Flash-based game, which allows you to plug dozens of pixelated students, just feels like a shallow cry for attention.
As a shooter, it's on a par with a crude 1970s game. As social commentary, it's numbly sociopathic and vacuous. Can games address national tragedies? Absolutely. Is V-Tech Rampage trying to? Absolutely not.
Beneath contempt.
