That should be Award Winning Ship Simulator Pro. It was apparently awarded “Best Serious Game 2009” by the right serious Lord David Puttnam at the 4th Apply Serious Games & Virtual Worlds conference in London. That’s gaming where you have to frown, and wear a suit, by the way. Is Ship Simulator Pro the best of such games? Perhaps, but I got more of a kick of Euro Truck Simulator. Anyway, good work, Ship Simulator guys, we do like your ships, and also your boats. There’s apparently a new demo up, but you need to logged into the Ship Sim site to get it.

You probably haven’t read secret friend of Rock Paper Shotgun Oliver Clare’s review of Serious Game Global Conflict: Palestine so I’m going to link to it, as I think it’s worth thinking about. In fact, I already did by the time I said I was going to. And I’m doing it again. There’s no stopping me.
I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, as much as a journo-em-up appeals to me (I quite like the idea of being completely out of my depth and trying to interview Hamas about how to get past the end of level three in Rainbow Islands). It’s the sort of thing I wish there was more of. There’s a demo here, for interested parties.
