Amnesty International Releases Bulletproof iOS Game

April 20, 2011 -

The French chapter of International human rights organization Amnesty International has released an iOS game called Bulletproof. The goal of the game is to raise awareness about human rights violations around the world and to raise money for the organization. The game, playable on iPhone and iPad, cost a mere 0.99 cents. The group celebrates 50 years of fighting for human rights around the world. It's hard to hate on Amnesty International, unless you're a maniacal dictator that jails and tortures people..

The game was created by Mobigame and is sponsored by French ad agency La Chose. In Bulletproof, players tap the touch screen to stop bullets from a firing squad trying to execute a condemned man. While the design sounds simple, the message is powerful. You can send a powerful message by buying it and supporting the organization. You can buy it here.

Re: Amnesty International Releases Bulletproof iOS Game

You would be surprised how many Americans hate Amnesty International... the believe AI to be part of some big plot to take away America's sovendry and had it over to europeans socialists or something.  They got esp pissy when AI released its report about human rights abuses in the US and dared to say that we were not a flawless becon of light.

Ah, the classic 'if you are not 100% for us, you are 100% against us!' meme....

Re: Amnesty International Releases Bulletproof iOS Game

That number is smaller than you may think.  Also, it IS kind of a stretch to compare waterboarding (with a full medical staff on hand) to the ripping-out of fingernails and the rape of prisoners, which is what AI did.

Way to leave out a few facts to make your point.

The AI report I was thinking of predated Bush Jr

Even with that, I have talked with a person who was waterboarded... it is not as gentle as people think... and this was coming from someone who has been raped, beaten, and slashed open.. so they had a pretty good baseline for comparing the experinces.  It is not a stretch at all to compare them.

Re: Amnesty International Releases Bulletproof iOS Game

Uh, yeah, it is.  I've been waterboarded, too, and raped and beaten.  If this imaginary friend of yours is honestly saying that they're comparable, s/he's an idiot out for attention.

Nope, the person is real.

I also know the person who did the waterboarding, USMC.

DocMelonheadAlso you keep on replying as if you wanted to prove that Total Biscuit have no input because he harass Sarkeesain through defamation. Also take a look at this:08/03/2015 - 10:55pm
IronPatriotDocMelon, are you saying that Andrew Eisen is NOT an ethical journalist?08/03/2015 - 10:53pm
IronPatriotSo if Gamergate was actually about ethics, gamergaters would condemn TotalBiscuit. Right?08/03/2015 - 10:52pm
DocMelonheadI didn't said he was ethical you harassing fool. Why the hell are you attacking Total Biscuit anyways? He's a commentator for christ sake.08/03/2015 - 10:52pm
IronPatriotBecause if TB's informational videos are full of lies, then TB is guilty of bad ethics in game journalism. Right?08/03/2015 - 10:52pm
IronPatriotSo now that you know you cannot defend TotalLYINGbiscuit as merely only "parroting" pro-gamergate lies against gamergate victims like Sarkeesian, please explain how TB is ethical.08/03/2015 - 10:51pm
DocMelonheadWell good for you for pointing that out that Total Biscuit lies about everything.08/03/2015 - 10:50pm
IronPatriotDocmelon admits "DocMelonhead: Iron Patriot, I have no proof, I got no evidence" for his false claim defending TotalLYINGbiscuit. Thank you for finally being honest.08/03/2015 - 10:49pm
DocMelonheadFace it, going through your collection of articles to prove that gamergate is a cover for harassment ain't going to cut it to those who believe said movement can be salvage.08/03/2015 - 10:48pm
DocMelonheadOr all you wanted to see is counter proof that GamerGate is a Bigot campaign against Social Justice Studies in Video games? Either way, It's no wonder you got banned back then.08/03/2015 - 10:43pm
DocMelonheadI said that as a belief because the lie that Anita Sarkeesian is a Hack is very common among the skeptics. Also why the well do you dehumanize Total Biscuit anyways? Do you have a grudge against gamergate?08/03/2015 - 10:42pm
DocMelonheadIron Patriot, I have no proof, I got no evidence, hell the main reason I said that is because I hate your aggressiveness. All I said is that I believe that Total Biscuit regurgitate the same belief that Anita Sarkeesisan's a fraud08/03/2015 - 10:37pm
IronPatriotbenohawk, why do you believe TotalLyingBiscuit when he says he cares about ethics? If he cared about ethics, why did he LIE so much about Gamergate victims like Sarkeesian? How is his lying ETHICAL?08/03/2015 - 10:22pm
IronPatriotDocMelon, prove your claim that TotalLyingBiscuit did not make up the anti-Sarkeesian lies he told to proven harassers in Gamergate. Prove it.08/03/2015 - 10:19pm
DocMelonheadOnce you watch this in full, then you realize why Gamergate is a thing.08/03/2015 - 10:10pm
DocMelonheadSo once again, I invite you to watch this video to see what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y8XgGhXkTQ&list=PLJA_jUddXvY62dhVThbeegLPpvQlR4CjF08/03/2015 - 10:09pm
benohawkThe simplest way is to look at what he's said in total, as mentioned before, he's come out against harassment, and that his past behavior suggests that he's very much in it for Ethics and not to try and drive women out of the industry08/03/2015 - 10:03pm
DocMelonheadBecause that is the exact same nutpicking that made GamerGate infamous in the first place.08/03/2015 - 10:02pm
