Chinese Anti-Corruption Game Proves too Popular

A Chinese government-sponsored online game that allows players to learn government anti-corruption measures and to kill corrupt officials and their bikini-clad mistresses has been overwhelmed by user demand. The Ningbo Haishu District Discipline Commission in Zhejiang province launched "Incorruptible Warrior" on July 25 and had reportedly attracted more than 10,000 players by August 1. However, the game server could only accommodate 600 players at a time, according to head designer Hua Tong. "It has been closed so it could be updated as more and more users have registered, overloading the server," said an unidentified commission official. Corruption remains widespread among high-level officials in China, despite public anger and repeated campaigns by the ruling Communist Party to uproot graft.
