    Lived on Steam quietly for 2 years. Now suddenly finds itself at the forefront of Social Networking.

    If you’re trying to educate people about slavery, maybe a video game isn’t a great idea. And maybe the company should have educated itself first.

    For two long years a game about the slave trade in America was hiding on Steam's network, with a few buyers and players, but then suddenly out of nowhere, it was discovered, and the social networks lit up in flames, calling out the developers for producing such a Racist Game.

    So what do you think, have you tried the game yourself yet? - Do you think it is 'Racist' or is it 'Learning History'? - The growing very angry at times debate continues to rage on via Social Networks!

      Non-news. I mean, I'm OK having it posted here, but this isn't something for people to get worked up about. At best, it's tongue-in-cheek, which makes the outrage unwarrented, or at worst, it is racially motivated, and because it's not sold well, you're not doing anything against it but stamping your feet if you're complaining.

      It's only a buck. I almost want to buy it for the joke. That's probably worth a dollar.
