Double Bird Strike
In Double Bird Strike, by Dominic Tocci, players play the pilot of an airliner that has had its engines knocked out by birds. The goal is to land the plane safely in a river.
The game was obviously meant to leverage the attention that came when US Airways flight 1549 was taken down by birds and landed safely in the Hudson River.
Many news games, while attracting millions of players, have no advertising, since the designers don't want to be seen as profiting from tragedy.
