Outpacing the movie industry, the WikiLeaks’s founder Julian Assange’s story has already hit with the gaming community. Indie game developers have created the WikiLeaks Stories collective in order to turn some of the actual stories revealed in the WikiLeaks cables into games.
Dutch developer Sebastiaan Moeys has directly tapped into the zeitgeist and spent a week creating “WikiLeaks: The Game” where, in a bit of creative fiction, you can play Assange stealing private documents himself. At least one other WikiLeaks inspired game (“Uncle Sam Vs. WikiLeaks” also exists).
In Moeys’ “WikiLeaks: The Game,” your objective is to wait until President Obama is asleep and then try to download 300K secret files from his laptop with a USB. Just like governmental attempts to quash WikiLeaks, the game is harder than it looks.
Also, here’s a NBC.com’s video, with the sketch involving Julian Assange in prison is shown:
