First Strike is a video game that just may save the world. It casts you in the role of a nuclear Superpower, walking the fine line between war and peace and trying to avoid the scenario of having the entire planet bombed to death. In a unique real-world tie-in, though, some of the proceeds that this game makes will be donated to organizations that are working toward actual nuclear disarmament across the globe – so if enough people buy this, and enough money's donated, and enough bombs are defused and disposed of around the world, well, we all might just live to see a day we may not have otherwise.
