The historical rupture of the atomic bomb makes the moment it was dropped almost ahistorical—Hidezaku Furuya's videogame documentary forces you to inhabit it as a crewmember of the Enola Gay. It's quite startling.


Each person playing the game wears a headset, speaking the lines onscreen like a member of the Enola Gay's crew as it progresses. At the end, it plays back a recording of everyone, so you hear it in your own voice.

I suppose that's as close you'd want to get to the experience of ending, saving and changing millions of lives in an instant. [Hidezaku Furuya ITP]
