This paper examines ethical issues involved in the production of computer games. A review of the current literature available is conducted to understand the work that has been completed on this subject and to identify any areas that require more analysis. The learnings from this review are used to inform a code of ethics for computer game design, based on a number of key principles. This is then tested with a case study of a computer game in production to demonstrate its use.
