Harpooned: Japanese Cetacean Research Simulator

January 29th, 2008 by Dave · No Comments

A while back, I posted a bit about Japanese whale “research” that results in the slaughter and consumption of large numbers of whales. Harpooned is a new videogame simulating this. You play the part of a whaler and try to kill as many whales as possible, while avoiding the legal fees associated with injuring protesters. It seems interesting, and could certainly be used as part of a discussion on whaling. I haven’t actually played it, though, as my current laptop is running WinME.
