Germany: First video game featuring Nazi symbols released

AFPTV

Video games marketed in Germany can now legally include Nazi symbols and references, provided that their presence does not serve as propaganda. A Berlin studio is releasing the first video game to feature swastikas and the Nazi salute - a rerelease of a former game which had been modified to remove these references. "Through the Darkest of Times" takes place in Berlin in the 1930s and tells the story of resistance to National Socialism. At Gamescom in Cologne, an international gaming fair, players say they are satisfied with this change in the German law.
