MassMedia: Play a War Journalist in New Video Game "Warco: The News Game" [VID] #Warco #gaming

In this video game "shoot" takes on a different meaning.  In this first-person "shooter" you play a war journalist trying to get video and file stories.  Some coverage of the game from MSNBC... after the ad...

The main writer for the game is Tony Maniaty who was the author of Shooting Balibo, a book about war journalist killed in East Timor.

The game is still in production.

When it comes out, I wonder if it could be used in a journalism course?

Some more news coverage of the news game.

Check out some of the game play.
