Ethnic Cleansing Resistance Records 2002

This is a controversial computer game developed by Resistance Records, an underground music label of the racist group the National Alliance, specializing in Neo-Nazi and white supremacist bands. The game was released on the Martin Luther King holiday. In the game, the protagonist (the player can choose either a skinhead or a Klansman) runs through a ghetto killing black people and Latinos, before descending into a subway system to kill Jews. Finally he reaches the "Jewish Control Center", where Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of Israel, is directing plans for world domination. The player must kill Sharon to win the game. During the game monkey and ape sounds are heard when Blacks are killed, poncho-wearing Latinos say "I'll take a siesta now!" or "Ay carumba!" while "Oy vey!" rings out when Jewish characters are killed. The game has a high level of background detail and various National Alliance signs and posters appear throughout while racist rock blares on the soundtrack. The game was developed using Genesis 3D, an open source game engine. Despite the game's title, which would imply a long, grand-scale "ethnic cleansing" campaign by part of the player, the game is actually very short (only 3 levels), and the alleged "racial fight" takes place in an area not bigger than a few city blocks, including the subway. The number of enemies faced (not more than a few dozens in each level) also makes the gameplay to appear more like a violent street riot, than an "ethnic cleansing". It's only their resistance and attack speed that makes the game difficult. The Anti-Defamation League publicized the existence of the game and unsuccessfully lobbied the developers of Genesis3D to change their licensing conditions to prohibit the use of the engine to develop racist games. They have also lobbied the Interactive Digital Software Association to encourage their members to adopt such policies.
It's possibly the first computer or video game that was conceived, developed and commercially released having explicitly racist content. Games with racist themes have existed before in freeware form and as mods for commercial games. Fan-made games killing Bin Laden or Hussein have led to criticism of major commercial games where there's implied-racism in that all enemies are Arabs or Mexicans or GTA: Vice City encourages players to "Kill all Haitians". Even popular rappers have given their likenesses to games which promote images of blacks as gang members and thugs. There have also been games made to counter that notion where pro-Arab games have Israelis as the enemy. So, game makers have found FPS games a useful propaganda tool to reruit young minds to their cause.
