Adding to FutureFarmer's stable of satirical digital commentaries on war, globalisation and the American government, is the Antiwar Game. Find out just how damn hard it is to run a war at the same time as keeping media and business interests happy, appeasing (or dismissing) peaceniks at home and maintaining popularity. Watch ratings soar when you send the military services overseas - then plummet as the troops turn into dope-smoking rebels. If you perform poorly you're at risk of internal rebellion, assassination, killer viruses, terrorists attacks and - well, I won't tell you how I eventually lost the game. But when it all turns to custard in this virtual world, you can retire gracefully to the links page and surf the interesting sites that inspired the game. - Helen Varley Jamieson
