A video game which is set for release in 2019 has characters which resemble Hitler, Jesus, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Napoleon Bonaparte and Benito Mussolini.
In the game, these characters are on a mission to kill LGBT+ people, immigrants, feminists, socialist politicians, “social justice warriors” as well as “radical, frenzied NON-BINARY, GENDER FLUID pansexual humanoid berserker.”
In the game players can throw the above groups off buildings, mirroring the horrific killings endured by LGBT+ people at the hands of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Players can also bludgeon victims with an axe or shoot victims in the head.
Developers have described the game as “heartwarming” and “fun for all the family” while denying that characters like ‘Dolf’ are based on real-life people:
“Hitler is not mentioned or featured in this video game. Perhaps your [sic] mistaken by our entirely fictional character Dolph. You likely assumed that just because he is Austrian and has a mustache [sic] he is Hitler. If that is the case, your a disgusting, fascist, racist and you have offended the entire Austrian Male Mustache community.”
The developers’ website asks visitors to donate by PayPal in order to support the game’s development. Supporters can donate a once off amount or make their donation monthly.
When asked for comment on their involvement in this venture, PayPal told THEGAYUK.com that they were “looking into it, however won’t be able to comment further due to customer confidentiality”.
This is not the first time a game has been developed where the objective is to kill gay people.
In November, a video game called Angry Goy II was released.
One source said that one of the game’s levels looked “eerily similar” to Pulse nightclub. On that level, players “break into a gay club, called the ‘LGBTQ+ Agenda HQ,’ and slaughter everyone inside.” Another level sees players shoot journalists and reporters at the ‘Fake News Network’.
