On the eve of the 41st anniversary of John F Kennedy's death, a controversial PC 'docu-game' is inviting gamers to recreate the president's assassination by Lee Harvey Oswald.
JFKReloaded.com, developed by Scottish firm Traffic, challenges participants to fire the three shots that came from the sixth floor of the Dallas book depository.
The game claims accurately to recreate the surroundings and events of 22 November 1963 in downtown Dallas, using information from the Warren Commission report.
"We've created the game in the belief that Oswald was the only person that fired the shots on that day, although this recreation proves how immensely difficult his task was," said Kirk Ewing, managing director of Traffic, and the creator of JFKReloaded.com.
The company dismissed allegations that the game could be deemed offensive, insisting that its aim is to promote the title "respectfully whilst encouraging as many people to play the game as possible".
The game costs $9.99. Traffic has offered a prize of up to $100,000 for the first person to most accurately recreate the three shots made by Oswald.
