Coverage last week of the concentration camp first-person shooter Sonderkommando Revolt may have raised curiosity about how people would play a game about the Holocaust.

The developers of Sonderkommando Revolt, the video game set amidst a violent prisoner uprising in a Nazi concentration camp, reads like exploitative revenge fantasy.
