Kim Jong Un Takes on the Capitalists in New Video Game

May 14, 2014

Other video games let you experience life as a cat, but now you can pretend to be a dictator.

Atlanta-based Moneyhorse Games created a side-scrolling video game that will be available soon for PCs and mobile devices. It features North Korea's Kim Jong Un gallivanting through forests on unicorn and dashing through the streets of Pyongyang, battling U.S. paratroopers and eventually setting fire to an American flag.

Oh, and of course, Kim Jong Un's noted bestie Dennis Rodman will be involved.

As the Guardian points out, this game -- simply titled "Glorious Leader!" -- could trivialize the very serious accusations against the dictator's regime and the many perceived problems within the secluded nation. Moneyhorse Games CEO Jeff Miller told the Guardian that the company hopes to "carefully walk the line of satire without being an apologist for the regime."
