First Person Victim, featured as part of GAMBIT Game Lab's vaunted video podcast series, is Schønau Fog’s look at the darker side of war largely ignored by military-inspired first-person shooters such as Call of Duty — namely the world of trapped civilians. Players of First Person Victim experience a military airstrike through the eyes of their unarmed characters.

[...] This video of GAMBIT's March 31st, 2011 research meeting will feature our friend Henrik Schønau Fog, PhD Fellow in Mediology who will present his game "First Person Victim", a project that he developed with a team of other researchers from Aalborg University, which situates the player in the middle of a war scenario as a civilian. It's a fascinating project, so don't miss it!
