As those of you stalking me may already know, I do news coverage for The Escapist every week day. That's where I came across this thing.
Kinda horrifying, right? The good news is that it may just be a shocking PR stunt. I did as much digging as one can from a MacBook, and as far as I can tell, this game only exists within the bounds of a single web page. At least, for the moment.
The site and the YouTube video only appeared yesterday, so for all I know this could just be the initial wave of an imminent slavery-themed marketing blitz.
Look, there's no safe way for me to offer witty commentary on this topic, so I'm just going to walk away now. Leave your baffled reactions in the comments.
