Russian Computer Game about War in Georgia


Very interesting news for computer games fans: soon you will be able to "play a war" between Georgia and Russia. The idea was born in Russia. The computer game simulating a new war between Russia and Georgia, in which NATO-member Poland backs a fresh bid by Tbilisi to take back its rebel regions, is expected to hit shops soon.
In the computer game "Confrontation — Peace Enforcement," which will go on sale in Russia next month, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili gets support from unnamed Western powers and decides to launch another attack to seize back South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
"NATO does not stay out of it, pushing Poland forward as its representative and Ukraine blockades the Black Sea fleet in Sevastopol," according to the description of the game supplied by its creators on Friday.
"Russia cannot remain out of it and launches a strike in response," said the game’s creators, two Russian software and multimedia companies. Russia’s Black Sea fleet rents a base in Ukraine’s Crimean port of Sevastopol, a source of tension with Kiev. The armies of Russia, Poland, Georgia and Abkhazia take part in the war game.
The title of the game is a reference to the way President Dmitry Medvedev described Russia’s actions in Georgia — an operation to enforce peace.
But the makers of "Confrontation — Peace Enforcement" said the game should not be taken too seriously. "Politics are politics and a game is a game. These things should not be confused," Alexander Dmitrevsky, the business development director at one of the game’s makers, Russobit-M, told Reuters. Reuters
