Madrid, the game

The guys over at Newsgaming — a web site devoted to producing online Flash games that comment on news events — have released a little game commemorating the terrorist attack in Madrid. Unlike their previous title, Sept. 12, this one is a more about creating a moment of emotional affect, as opposed to an intellectual riff on the event. Considering they released the game in only two days, it brings the concept of games-as-commentary an intriguing step closer to reality.
