Idk how the devs could think this is a good idea. Like, this is your game idea? Anybody should be able to see the backlash coming.

If I had to take a strong guess, the "dev" is probably trying to get attention and money off the shock factor of the game. I mean it got noticed from us, and a couple of other sites, and you can damn well assume other journalist like Kotaku or Jim Sterling will write articles about it, making edge lords want to buy the game.

Obviously controversial for the sake of being controversial, dev seems to be looking for attention through shock value, but honestly its offensive and in very poor taste.
