Newsweek On Six Days In Fallujah
Since Konami bowed out as publisher, developer Atomic Games has been hoping to land a new home for the controversial military action title, Six Days in Fallujah.
As Big Download points everyone in the direction of a recent Newsweek Magazine feature, we see that Six Days in Fallujah is definitely getting some very real attention. Not surprisingly, there will be multiple obstacles to overcome (the first of which will be to locate a publisher), and Atomic will have to deal with all of them if this game is ever to see the light of day. Firstly, they need to make everyone see that this isn't the typical, everyday shooter; that it kinda belongs in a category all its own. Secondly, the protesters aren't going to stop, and in fact, they'll definitely intensify when and if a publisher schedules the game for release. Regardless of how accurate the depiction may be, or how well it pays homage to the lives lost in the battle and war in question, some people simply don't like the idea. But from a business standpoint, Atomic just wants to get this thing sold. Said head boss Peter Tamte:
"We have a lot of people who are interested in the project. But I'll feel better when we sign something and the checks start coming."
Yes, well, such is the plight of the developer who currently has no publisher. But if you're intrigued by this game, the first part of his statement ought to encourage you. We're not sure if he's referring to potential publishers or gamers in general, but if it's the former, perhaps Six Days in Fallujah will find a new home soon...
