Is This Fun? ‘Deadskins’ Game Promises Scalp-Taking Zombie Indians
A video game designer is seeking funds for “Deadskins,” a proposed console game that many Natives will no doubt find troubling.The story begins with the mysterious massacre of a tribe by a supernatural being or beings. Then, as described at the game’s Kickstarter page:

What a disgusting name for a game. I’ve read what this game was about on steam. I like how people are trying to make a game about Native Americans, with one being the main character too. This is something I always wanted to see in video games. But giving the main enemy and the title of your game a name that plays off a racist label like “Red Skins” is just awful. Deadskins as a name for anything is just racist to Native Americans period. If this game wants any positive attention it needs to change it’s disgusting name.
