Kuma Reality Games' latest installment takes gamers through the frenzied search through the town of Adwar, and the capture of Saddam Hussein by U.S. troops in the infamous "spider hole." Kuma's previous episode was a recreation of the events that led to Saddam's war crimes trial, currently in progress in Iraq.

"The Capture of Saddam: Operation Red Dawn," takes gamers through a detailed walkthrough of Adwar, featuring the actual events and strategies the U.S. Army employed to capture Hussein in 2003. Filled with drama, this mission gives consumers an interactive experience from a key event that still resonates throughout the world.

"We utilize advanced game technology to recreate events that are at the center of Saddam Hussein's trial," said Keith Halper, CEO of Kuma Reality Games. "These missions allow people to educate themselves on international events that have shaped our history, while providing a dynamic forum for further exploration and discussion."

The previous installment, "The Crime of Dujayl: Saddam's Revenge," spotlights the events of 1982, for which Saddam Hussein faces his first round of judgment. From the Iraqi town of Al-Dujayl, Hussein is accused of executing 143 villagers and imprisoning 1,500 more.

For nearly two years KumaWar has expanded the boundaries of news reporting through accurate and timely recreations of real-world military events. Delivered just weeks after the events take place on the battlefield, Kuma's mission list includes more than 60 episodes to date, including "Uday and Qusay's Last Stand," "Operation Anaconda," "Fallujah Vigilant Resolve," "Iran Hostage Rescue" and "John Kerry's Silver Star."
