Australian Devises Online Game Based on Virginia Tech Shootout

circumstances, even if he received a request from the victims' families.

"I'm afraid not," he said, but added: "I hope they'd never do that."

He said he empathised with the killer and that he, like Cho, had been a victim of abuse and bullying at high school.

Lambourn was born in Australia but grew up in the United States before returning to Australia when he was 14.

He said he left school in the eighth grade having been bullied and abused at several institutions in Texas, Maine, New Jersey, New York and North Carolina.

He described himself as a self-taught animator supported financially by his mother, who still lives in the United States.

New South Wales Police Minister David Campbell last night contacted the federal government about the existence of V-Tech Rampage.

"This computer game, V-Tech Rampage, is absolutely disgusting in its celebration of a tragic mass murder," Mr Campbell said.

"I will urgently speak to the Federal Government to see if they can shut down the site.

"While at first glance the game does not appear to break any laws, its insensitivity and lack of basic community standards will offend all decent Australians."

The game's message boards have been flooded with notes of outrage, but a surprising number of people also expressed admiration for the game.

"This isn't about free speech and censorship or the political backlash over games like this (sic) . These people are angry about the complete lack of respect you have shown for those who are grieving," said one.

But another wrote: "Dude! Super cool. I love it how people are crying all over this game."

Now psychologists would have to worry how Lambourn himself would evolve and how those playing his Virginia Tech game would. It is also a moment for the multi-million dollar video game industry to pause and think.
