Despite Gov’t Approval, Google Rejects ‘Attentat 1942’ from Google Play Store in Germany

Brilliant article by Gamasutra about the release of the videogame ‘Attentat 1942’. Despite the developer’s effort, Google refused to publish the game on their Play Store in Germany, France, Austria and Russia.

‘How we’re supposed to make an historically-accurate game about WW2 horrors without Nazis? We don’t know.’

I wholeheartedly agree with the company:

“We firmly believe that videogames are art and can be an important part of public conversations. When we ban everything with any controversial keywords no matter the content, everybody loses.”

Yeah, I don’t even fully understand their reasoning, to be honest. The company’s due diligence with the German authorities was exceptional. I agree with you about WWII, I have a personal involvement with the event so I can fully relate. Thanks!
