“Bridging Cultures: One Pixel at a Time”

Let’s cut to the chase. The State Department threw down over 400k taxpayer dollars to develop and distribute this ‘X-Life’ game for the mobile phone. X-Life is a game geared towards middle easterners to help learn about the American culture, history and improve English skills. This will be achieved through the use of trivia, role-playing, and puzzle games.

“It also aims to show the United States in a positive light and illustrate U.S. values such as tolerance, freedom and respect of religious differences.” Manouchehri, CEO of MetroStar Systems.

Hmmm, this doesn’t scream, “Oh Hi! We’re the United States of America and yeah, we made this game to kiss your ass because our pants are slightly soiled and you should bow to us!.” Right! Saudi Arabis, Egypt, and Iran have been the biggest customers of this free downloadable mobile game which is, btw, only available on two phone types. The fact that the State Dept. has dished out several hundred G’s to develop a game to improve ‘tolerance’ and ‘respect of religious differences’ kinda slaps us in the face with the good ol’ ‘vulnerable’ stamp.

It’s funny how we can be in such an economic slump, yet we’ve always got money to assist our senseless fears.

The Game

...For eighteen years my mind was held captive by a robotic core nervous system controlled by a secret government paid project called the Asur System. They were able to subjugate my mind in accordance with their "system". Years were spent gathering bits of information and experiencing the events in between objectives. The help of a fated stranger, H, allowed me to free myself from the constraints instilled by the conglomeration. H was able to hack my system and provide me with the freedom to think completely on my own. It was only a matter of time before the conglomeration would get to H. The order was sent for me to take out the very individual who aided in my escape. Luckily, my new abilities had allowed me to combat my wicked ways. In my failure to execute my freer, the hit grew to both of us. After a years of running and hiding they caught up to us, but this time I wasn't able to hold them off. I managed to escape. H did not. Since that day dark day, I've stopped running. Now I am the one chasing. Every day is a beautifully orchestrated battle amongst a field of flowers. The war between the Asur and me is an endless one. Eternally, I absorb information and battle their D-Men as they come along; expanding my mind to fulfill the universe. I am Mr. O'siris
