Six Days in Fallujah Six Days in Fallujah, conceived by a seriously wounded US Marine, recreates the true stories of the Second Battle of Fallujah in 2004, one of the world's heaviest and most influential modern wars.
In the game, players assume the role of real marines, army soldiers and Iraqi civilians as they engage in critical moments of the war.
More than 100 Iraqi Marines, soldiers and civilians who were present at the Second Battle of Fallujah shared their personal stories, photos and videos with the development team.

"Six Days in Fallujah allows players to become virtual participants in a historic, world-changing event, providing context and insight," Victora CEO Peter Tamte said in a statement. It's encouraging to see how one of the world's most respected powers in conflict is bringing the interactivity of games like Fallujah to help our players understand the events that are shaping the world.
"Photographs, books, plays, films and TV programs tell compelling stories of the conflict," said Chris Cooper and Ian Kicucci, curators of the Imperial Museums' War Games exhibition. Video games continued this tradition into the 20th and 21st centuries and have become the largest and fastest growing entertainment industry today. We hope that this exhibition will encourage visitors to think about the impact of this medium on our understanding of war and conflict.
Six Days in Fallujah is coming to PC and consoles. It is developed by Highwire Games and does not have a release date yet. The five branches of the Imperial War Museum attract more than 2.5 million visitors a year.
