|I have come here to hack stuff and chew bubblegum...and I'm all out of bubblegum.|
Although Sony's Seth Rogen/James Franco flick The Interview has absorbed the brunt of the free media attention generated by hackers who apparently want the film scuttled (no one wanted to see it before Sony and major theater chains said they couldn't, but now it couldn't be hotter), Glorious Leader! was hit with some of the collateral impact.
Now Jeff Miller of Moneyhorse Games, will bravely soldier on and release his game that up until now nobody had ever heard about. Although he hasn't been threatened by hackers...yet...Glorious Leader! probably only has a matter of time...
Miller to the AP:
"We want the game to be a topical as possible," adding that he isn't afraid of backlash from the DPRK because the game makes Kim Jong-un "look totally awesome."
Well, he does ride a unicorn...
At great personal risk to himself, he's also put Glorious Leader! on Kickstarter, aiming to raise $55,000.
Never back down America.
