Guantanamo Bay Video Game Maker: Hires Former Detainee as Reality Consultant

June 1, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Guantanamo Bay prison is soon to become the setting for a video action game where prisoners suffer unspeakable abuses at the hands of their captors as laboratory rats. Imagine that. Dick Cheney and the Bush administration must be proud.

The British video game company, T-Enterprise is currently developing the video game entitled, Rendition: Guantanamo where the game plot plays out in the GITMO of the future run by sadistic mercenaries, who subject their innocent captives to dangerous laboratory experiments and other horrors.

The unfortunates were captured behind enemy lines and sold to the GITMO mercenaries as human commodities to be used as lab rats. The father of one of the captives is a character in the game, who is desperate to find his missing son and free him.

To lend a more realistic feel to the game setting, the game developers hired former British Muslim Guantanamo Bay detainee, Moazzam Begg who was imprisoned there for three years before being released without any charges.

Video Game developers frequently hire reality consultants to provide gamers a more realistic portrayal of the game setting. However, hiring a former detainee of Guantanamo Bay makes me wonder what horrors the poor man would add to the game experience.

Begg and seven other British detainees sued the British government, claiming British officials share equal responsibility with the U.S. for their imprisonment and abusive treatment.   Watch the game trailer:
