Former detainee consulting on Guantanamo game

Moazzam Begg spent three years locked up at Guantanamo Bay after being arrested in Pakistan by the CIA as a suspected member of al-Qaeda. Now he's helping UK developer T-Enterprise develop a game based on the prison, aptly titled Rendition: Guantanamo, serving as not only a consultant on the reality inside but as a financier on the project.

"This will not demean the reality of Guantanamo but it could bring those issues to people who would not usually think about it," Begg told Deadline Scotland. We're not sure if it's just us, but this is starting to sound a lot like Six Days in Fallujah in that it falls under the "probably not the best premise for a video game" category. Don't believe us? Check out the trailer after the break and decide for yourself.
