Meet the developer behind the most violent game in history

By Joey Keeton on November 13, 2014
A main character in a trench coat talks about a “genocide crusade” before opening fire on a suburban neighborhood. A police officer is repeatedly shanked, a man’s head explodes at the bad end of a shotgun, and a pistol is placed in a woman’s mouth as she screams helplessly. The trigger is pulled; blood showers the street below.

This is the gameplay shown for the game Hatred in a trailer released in October. It’s immediately obvious that it would be written about all over the world. It was sadistic and gory, and anything that makes people gasp and cover their eyes in horror is ripe for mass media coverage.

Most violent? I highly doubt that when there is God of War and Mortal Kombat around.

Most sick premise ever in a game? Yes. But I've seen worse in films like, A Serbian Film. Nothing can prepare you for what you'll see there.

When i submitted this i considered changing that but then thought against it as it is the headline on the original article.

Its more about the offence it may cause, which a lot of people seem to be taking it from this title. i for one find offence a funny thing "i find that offensive" has no meaning and is nothing more that someone moaning.

Almost sounded like you were quoting Stephen Fry lol.

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."

Now imagine him saying that in a LittleBigPlanet intro, that'd be interesting.

"To be honest, she’s kind of asking for that, because she’s doing a lot of stuff that people don’t like it. Come on, it’s normal that if you go to the public with some controversial stuff, just like us, there will be people that will try to harm you, or hurt you, and all this stuff. So, she asks for it, as we just did with our trailer. We knew that there would be a lot of controversy, we were ready for it, and we don’t give a shit."

'How did you guys react to people saying the game is racist?'

"We didn’t expect it, because we are making the most equal and most tolerant game ever. Everybody dies here"

He pulled no punches on this one. I have a lot of respect for this dude for speaking his mind and the truth.

I really dont know why the gaming community is so sensitive when it comes to things that are "controversial". I thought we where trying to reach a point in the gaming community where storytelling in games are on the same level as books and movies. Guess what rape,murder, torture, etc are things that happen in the real world and are things that also happen in hundreds of thousands of books and movies out there. Why games shy away from topics like that are beyond me. I mean for example, there are literally atleast 5 rape scenes in game of thrones that i can remember of the head noone bats an eye lash. But when tomb raider only implies it, its national gaming news lol.

this game reminds me of that movie rampage on netflix, noone says anything about the random violence in that movie. I dont see any articles about that....

That's funny, being that the original game, Postal, released in the 90's.
