Chaos dominos. That sounds like a fun game. I wonder how it might work.

With extended sequences where the man of the wagon goes out and kills 900,000 pounts of meat,
then carries fifty back to the wagon.
And suddenly his infant son dies of syphillis.
Brady: DAD, BISON ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES NOW THANKS TO YOU.

aderack: Someone should make a game where you’re a guard in a prison camp, just for the ethical questions. One that makes it really hard to do anything “good”, though not impossible.
aderack: Would be a good way for Rockstar North to break away from GTA.
aderack: Maybe get a little more serious.
Thom: yeah, that would have potential
Thom: maybe a reversal of The Great Escape
Thom: play as a Nazi guard at a POW camp
Thom: allow companies to use their WW2 game chops to make something interesting
aderack: By doing your job you’ll get promoted. By not doing your job you put your life in jeopardy. If you’re really clever you can seem to do your job while really helping the POWs — though what reward can that give you outside of your own satisfaction that you’re doing the best you can?
Thom: yup
aderack: Everything funnels you into helping you do your job, really. Not that hard, all things considered.
Thom: right, the player has to work harder to buck the system than to go along with it
