Makoto Nakaoka is the spokesman for Illusion - the company responsible for the RapeLay 'game' (more here
) - he is bewildered by the reaction of a USA-based organisation to his company's game. Equality Now
is a New York based human rights organisation that, " works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure".
The latter has set up a campaign against Illusions money-making rape game effort (details here
). It describes the game thus: "A schoolgirl around 12 years old travels on a commuter train. A man who has been following her gropes and sexually molests her. Eventually the train stops and she runs frightened into a public toilet, followed by her assailant who handcuffs and rapes her. The assailant takes her prisoner and repeatedly rapes her in various locations. Her mother and teenaged sister suffer the same fate. This family is targeted for rape as punishment because the older sister had previously reported to the police the attempted sexual assault of another woman by the rapist."
The organisation wants people to write to Illusion asking it to withdraw the game.
Says Makoto Nakaoka,"We are simply bewildered by the move.
"We make the games for the domestic market and abide by laws here. We cannot possibly comment on [the campaign] because we don't sell them overseas."
We can't believe that he is actually bewildered - or that he doesn't know how the Internet actually works.See also ABC Australia
