>Amazon’s questionable MMO has you colonize the ‘new world’

>New World is also a sanitized re-enactment of the European colonization of the Americas and elsewhere. It’s a manifestation of the great white fantasy of virgin territory and new beginnings. The game treads unwarily into a Heart of Darkness-like country of racist imperialism.

>There are no indigenous peoples. And according to developer Amazon Game Studios, it’s not really about invasion or America.

>Except … except there are human-like creatures on this Atlantic shoreline. They are shuffling zombies, variously called “Corrupted,” or “Withered.” They don’t have identifiable cultures, but they are extremely hostile to settlers. They aren’t portrayed like, say, the Wampanoag peoples that the Pilgrims encountered, or the Algonquian-speaking civilizations of pre-invasion Virginia.

This entire fucking article, jesus.

Is the game any good though?

It was never advertised as a historically accurate game. What's the big deal now? Fucking Polygon is just doing this for the clicks.

The funny thing is they get equally mad when people critcise games like asscreed or battlefield for inserting non-historical shit like niggers and women. Apparently historical accuracy is only ok when it shows whitey as the bad guys.

Conquering people and their land is the peak of human nature. The very act of war is magnificent and the white man is and forever will be the king when it comes to war. Anyone who thinks conquering foreign nations is "evil" and "bad" can suck my dick

So just business as usual? I feel like we could have an entire site just dedicated to polygon getting triggered.

It's not even America. the developers SPECIFICALLY state that it takes place on a fictional fantasy-like island. The characters are all player made as well so they can look like anything. The Devs specifically state that there are no natives to this world. The only enemy NPCs are other human settlers who have become corrupted by the Island's magical power and turned into zombies.

>Alright gang, let's work on this crafty suvivaly game with a Spanish colonial twist! We'll include historically accurate natives

<RACIST! YOU'RE HURTING BROWNS!

>Hmm, alright, well let's include historically inaccurate natives

<RACIST! YOU'RE MOCKING BROWNS!

>Okay let's just include zombie non-natives since no one minds murdering zombies

<RACIST! YOU'RE NOT INCLUDING BROWNS!

>Maybe we should just make a zombie nazi game

Game doesn't interest me anyhow. I don't like Spanish colonials and I'm not a huge fan of zombies either.

Also

>It’s a manifestation of the great white fantasy of virgin territory and new beginnings.

I can just feel the venom in these words. How dare anyone want to start over somewhere fresh, where evil hasn't yet taken hold. How dare anyone want to lay down roots somewhere not already crowded with people you don't like. How fucking dare White people want to carve out something new somewhere else.

Say no more, I'm already triggered. Fuck Amazon.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was any pretense from the game to be realistic and just shit all over the injuns for not having anything worthwhile to see (a complete lie by the way, amerimutt politics aside)

But like someone said, an african in full 18th century attire and a woman wielding a great axe in the middle of it screams a joke, and the damned floating islands seals the deal it's just mindless fun in terms of art direction.
