A video game developer is experiencing a backlash for a game where players can take on the role of a school shooter. “Active Shooter” is created by Revived Games and lets users play as either a school shooter or a SWAT team member. The game is scheduled to be released next month on the game distribution platform Steam and comes with a disclaimer that players shouldn’t take it seriously. As of last night, an online petition calling to stop the game’s release had collected nearly eight-thousand signatures.
