Zombie island isn't alone when it comes to the killing of small children in video games. Over the years I have seen the progression of how kids are portrayed and treated in games and it seems like they are being treated like everyone else. They can be killed, mauled, and basically treated like any other object/character, receiving no special treatment. I find this progression strange due to how we as a society view children. Maybe its the creators attempt to make the game seem more adult or edgy.
This trailer, along with the game, have been receiving a lot of hype, but I feel like the creators may have gone a little too far when they decided to add this little girl into the mix.
