Minister orders investigation into game promoting killing of Aboriginal Australians

Minister orders investigation into game promoting killing of Aboriginal Australians | Archivance - Miscellanées | Scoop.it
Communications minister Mitch Fifield has asked his department to investigate the circumstances under which a game that encourages players to bludgeon Aboriginal Australians to death was offered for sale on major online sites. This morning the game 'Survival Island 3: Australia Story 3D' was removed from sale on the Apple Store and Google Play after thousands demanded it's removal and labelled the game racist. "I am appalled that anyone would develop such a so called 'game' and that any platform would carry it," Minister Fifield said in a statement.
