Has the Scottish company Traffic Games developed the world’s first FPA (First Person Assassinator)? Dubbed JFK Reloaded, participants can take part in a simulated assassination of President John F. Kennedy travelling in the original Dallas motorcade. To be released on the 41st anniversary of the President’s death, players are allowed three shots from the 6th floor window of the infamous Texas School Book Depository. Reuters reports, Kirk Ewing managing director of Traffic Games and senior executive at VIS claimed the game’s purpose is intended to “exploit new technology” and “dispell conspiracy theories.” Discuss this in our forums.
“Traffic Games said the objective was for a player to fire three shots at Kennedy’s motorcade from assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s digitally recreated sixth-floor perch…Points are awarded or subtracted based on how accurately the shots match the official version…as documented by the Warren Commission…Shooting the image of Kennedy in the right spots in the right sequence adds to the score…shooting first lady Jacqueline Kennedy lead to deductions…The game will be available via download for $9.99.” Reuters
