Yesterday, provocative Italian game site Molleindustria took its Faith Fighter parody game offline. In doing so, Molleindustria admittedly bowed to pressure, primarily from the Saudi-based Organization of the Islamic Conference.
But less than a day later, Molleindustria has released Faith Fighter 2. The new version (screenshot at left) eschews the Mortal Kombat parody action of the original and comes complete with snarky intro:
Faith Fighter 2 is the sequel of the infamous game that outraged over 1.3 billions of muslims from 57 countries. The scandal resulted in a ban from all the internets!
We regretted the use of irony and violence and this time we want to offer you a positive, nonviolent educational game that teaches the universal values of tolerance and respect. This is a very simple game that can be played by children of all ages, religious leaders and even journalists!
