Killing Indigenous Australians is not a game!

Beware of Aborigines!

A video game that requires players to bludgeon Aboriginal Australians to death has prompted outrage and been removed from stores, raising questions as to how an app that warns players to "beware of Aborigines" was ever allowed online.

Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the immediate removal of Survival Island 3: Australia Story 3D from Apple's iTunes App Store and Google Play and demanding an apology from the app's developers.  


Georgia Mantle, of Sydney, ran the petition on the platform. She writes to NIL Entertainment, which produces the game, and App stores that sell it:

Selling games that promote racism and negative stereotypes of Indigenous Australians is not acceptable!

'Survival Island 3- Australia Story 3D', is a game available on a number of App Stores, developed by NIL Entertainment, that promotes violence towards Australia’s Indigenous people by allowing and even encouraging the players to kill Indigenous Australians.

The game shamelessly promotes the fact that you will “have to fight with aboriginals” and uses warning messages like, “Beware of Aborigines!” when Indigenous people appear on screen. The game portrays Indigenous Australian’s as violent and aggressive. As well as trying to promote the Indigenous characters as authentic representations of a diverse culture through the description phrasing, “Meet real aboriginals”.

Indigenous Australians face daily racism and discrimination. Indigenous Australians are over policed and continue to die at the hands of the state. This app further perpetuates the denial of Indigenous Australians humanity. It associates us with flora and fauna of the Australian landscape.

By shooting ‘dangerous Aboriginals’, this app makes us inhuman, it re-enforces racial violence, lack of punishment for white people taking black lives, it makes fun and sport of massacres and Frontier violence. This App is another colonialist frontier and continues to exploit the deaths of many Aboriginal people without regard to the trauma that it instigates.

The profiting of historical genocide and introducing these genocides as entertainment completely disregards the continual suffering of our people.

Sign this petition to take a stand against racism towards Indigenous Australians and to demand that this racist game be pulled with an apology from NIL Entertainment for its racist conduct. The App Stores that sold this app and its developers should be held accountable for not only promoting racism but profiting off it.

Killing Indigenous Australians is not a game!

You can on this site in Deutsch, Français, English and Italiano. I imagine very few people in the world at large even know who/what the Krim Tatars are. Get busy to publicise them and stop slagging other activists. We all have enough to do with our “favourite” causes.

Win! Amazon removes racist ’Survival Island’ game

19. Jan. 2016 — In less than 24 hours after seeing the ‘Survival Island’ game was still being sold on Amazon, it has been removed. Thanks to everyone who emailed Amazon yesterday to make this happen!

It’s so good to see people power taking on big corporations and winning - I would love to see more listening to the public like Apple, Google and Amazon has. I’m sure there’s tonnes of issues out there that need to be tackled so if you want something changed - just head to and share your ideas.

Thanks again for helping to get these games removed.
