Limnos Protests Against New Video Game

The island of Limnos is protesting against its inclusion in a new video game called  ‘Arma 3’.
The inhabitants and local authorities of the island claim that the video game is harming  its reputation as a peaceful place and constitutes a security threat to the island by  exposing  its terrain in high-definition, a newspaper reported on Monday.
“We cannot fathom that our island, a place of peace and creation, will be turned into a scene for violence and battle,” Limnos Mayor Antonis Hatzidiamantis told Eleftherotypia daily.
‘Arma 3’ was designed by award-winning Czech developers and in one of its levels a scenario is being played, where NATO Special Forces must destroy an enemy factory, which is actually the local factory of PPC (DEI).
The island lies close to Turkey and this could mean possible national security problems, another official said.
“There are national reasons to keep certain areas on the island secure but (in the game) they are shown in high-definition,” said Kostas Adamidis, head of the local municipal council.
