Al-Qaeda releases Quest for Bush video game
The following is from Jesse Petrilla, Chairman of United American Committee:
Al-Qa'eda group releases Quest For Bush, a modified version of a video game designed by United American Committee Chairman called Quest For Saddam. In response, the UAC gives free copies of original version to its members while legal avenues are pursued.
A message from United American Committee Chairman Jesse Petrilla on September 19th, 2006:
As many of you may not be aware, I am a video game designer. In 2003 I designed and produced a video game titled Quest For Saddam which became quite popular. Just today I became aware from a news story on CNN that in violation of intellectual property rights a modification had been made of my game by Islamic militants called “Quest For Bush”, and was released by a propaganda wing of none other than Al-Qa'eda, called The Global Islamic Media Front. The Islamists took Quest For Saddam, keeping the same levels and gameplay, and simply changed the graphics and sounds to make it a jihad against Bush and the West, instead of a fight against Saddam and his guards as was in the original game. While I feel greatly flattered to have had my work copied by such a highly esteemed group as Al-Qa'eda, despite the slightly unnerving aspect, it is indeed in violation of intellectual property rights and we are looking into the possibility of suing Al-Qa'eda for such reasons. In the meantime, as a response to this most recent development in the ongoing saga of conflict between the UAC and Islamists, we are releasing the original version of Quest For Saddam free to all UAC members and friends for a limited time, without even asking for any information from those who wish to download the game. It's our gift.
