I am so sick and tired of every moron in the universe loving that one, dead Jewish girl.
The video game lets players in the "Anne Frank" game make small choices like fetching a bag of potatoes from the attic or controlling the amount of noise she makes as she climbs the steps.
What could possibly be wrong with that??
"Resari refers to his "Anne Frank" project as an "interactive experience," rather than a game. He wants to recreate the atmosphere in hideout so that the user can best relate to the way Anne Frank must have felt."
"In this way the game doesn't offer any opulent or booming sound effects. The overall visual appearance could be described as simple and rather dismal, punctuated by quiet, melancholic piano music."
Burn down the house. Torch the trees and the saplings.
You would think that there are NO OTHER Holocaust survivors, that there were no other compelling stories....But all we get is ANNE FRANK.
What's next? Anne Frank line of clothing? Diaries? Pens?
Could everyone in the whole world JUST STOP IT???
Here is my conclusion: the people and institutions who do anything with Anne Frank, which has become A BRAND rather than a murdered Jew are just exorcising their own demons. Whatever they do with the Anne Frank Brand has little to do with the Holocaust and more to do with them and their own sickening, pathetic and self-indulgent neurosis.
'It's not really about having fun," Resari said. "Instead of action I want to create emotions. What does it feel like to live in 50 square meters with seven people and a cat? The game places special emphasis on social relations."
"When reading Anne Frank's diary, Resari had many questions. "I was wondering what the residents did all day long in the rear house," he muses, saying that he wants to fill in the blanks with his interactive experience."
"Resari traveled to the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam to research the making of this game for his bachelor thesis project. It was inspired by a professor challenging his students to create a "meaningful" game."
(This is why we need to burn down the house...)
Using Anne Frank for anything is a narcissistic act of the first order.
ME ME ME LOOK AT ME AND HOW SAD I AM ABOUT ANNE FRANK. THAT MEANS I AM A GOOD PERSON BECAUSE I AM SAD ABOUT ANNE FRANK.
So you know what-fuck you Kira Resari and all of the people who use this dead Jew as their own personal form of catharsis and psychotherapy. I mean it. Screw you. All of you who do that. You truly make me sick.
