Disgusting Homophobic Game ‘Kill The Faggot’ Removed From Steam

Kill-the-Faggot3

In shockingly disturbing news a horribly violent and anti-LGBT video game has been removed from the online video games store Steam.  The game, which encourages the player to kill as many gay and transgender people as they can was available for purchase on Steam Greenlight, a system that allowed players to vote on games in order to approve them into the store without any vetting or moderation from Steam itself.

The description for the point and click shooting game read as follows, ‘Hate gays?  Want to unleashyour frustration on the ‘LGBT’ community?  Well now is your chance.  Murder gays and transgenders, whilst avoiding straight people.  Get as many points before the time runs out.’

The game gives you points for killing ‘gay homo fags’, more points for killing ‘transgender freaks’, but deducts points from your total score if you kill ‘innocent’ straight people.

The creation of the game is credited to failed christian shoe promoter, Randall Herman, who in the past launched a kickstarter to develop a range of shoes designed to ‘promote the words and teachings of Jesus Christ through quality footwear’.  Yes folks, that’s the level of idiot we have to thank for this abomination of a game.

Despite violating the Steam terms of service, Herman paid out the $100 fee to place the game on Steam in an attempt to promote his anti-LGBT views.  In an interview Herman had this to say on the subject, ‘These people think that if you are even remotely homophobic, you are ‘hateful’ and a ‘bigot’, and do everything they can to destroy you in every vicious way possible.  So I decided to go down a path that most developers are afraid to go down: to piss these people off by making the most overly offensive game possible to these idiots to prove a point’.

Herman has also claimed to the press that he has recieved e-mails ‘wishing physical harm on me’ as a direct response to the game, though he has of yet been unable to produce any evidence of these messages.

Despite only being available on the Steam store for a few hours before being pulled it was long enough to garner several negative reviews, and for video game critic Jim Sterling to make a video preview of the game.

 

This is not the first time that independant games have made fun at, or used violence against the LGBT community as a selling tactic, such as ‘Ass Hunters’, a game where you are made to hunt down gays, that was removed from the Google app store.

I doubt that ‘Kill the Faggot’ will be the last of these such games, especially as long as websites like Steam allow users to upload content with no moderation.  Rather than reacting after the fact once they have recieved complaints these companies should be preventing this kind of content from even becoming available.
