Merabishvili got absorbed in playing police2011-02-09 22:03
"Police" computer game created with the participation of the Georgian MIA and aimed at improving the image of the local law-enforcement authorities may turn out a proper mess for the country's power-wielding structures. The project evidently does not bear the ideological load; moreover, it fails to entertain the users.
Let us remind you that the computer game dedicated to courageous Georgian policemen was mentioned for the first time after the notorious "spy scandal". Agitators from Tbilisi needed any pretext to promote their version of the "spy net" allegedly thrown upon Georgia by the evil Russian special services. That's why head of the country's MIA Vano Merabishvili stated that soon the audience will see a computer game giving a chance to fight criminality on the side of the Georgian servants of order. Naturally, a mission was also promised where the opposite side would be presented by Russian spies. I guess you would agree that the conclusion is shocking: if there are Russian spies in a shooter, then they must have been real. That's a true revolution in methods of
Some time later, the game called "Police" became available... not in the shops but on the website of the Georgian MIA - that's where the installation file of the program was placed. It looks like the authors of the game understood that the project would hardly be a great commercial success, which means one can reckon only upon the gamers' love for something free of charge and upon the large-scale promotion of the product with its clear political background arranged by the Georgian media. Their hopes have partially come true - the server hosting the website of the Georgian MIA was unable to cope with the number of queries from those wishing to download the game. At some moment, it simply stopped responding.
It looks like the rest of the online services associated with the server also broke at that minute, corporate electronic mail of the administration being in the first place. Thus, local security officials were even ready to deprive a whole ministry of an essential communication means to try and knock the antagonism to Russian special services into the heads of several Georgian teenagers. For instance, if Head of the Georgian MIA Vano Merabishvili wanted to give an order to his employees he could not do that: boys from Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi and, perhaps, Moscow and Washington were trying on the role of a heroic Georgian policeman and thus could not be disturbed.
