When the Next Mass-Shooting Happens, Hatred Is the Game That Will Be Blamed

In reaction to the perception of political correctness taking over, Hatred is a game where your goal is to straight-up murder innocent civilians.

Destructive Creations is an experienced indie team that, in times where a lot of games are heading to be polite, colorful, politically correct and trying to be some kind of higher art, rather than just an entertainment, wanted to create something against trends. Something different, something that could give the player a pure gaming pleasure. This is how the idea of Hatred – the team’s first game, was born.

I wasn’t aware that the majority of big-ticket games aimed to somehow NOT deliver gaming pleasure, but if a few indie games that try to be different are so bothersome, I guess I’m glad the anger went into creativity rather than something else. Seems to me a bit like making an action movie because you’re upset that foreign-language relationship dramas exist.

My name is not important. What is important is what I’m going to do. I just fu*kin’ hate this world. And the human worms feasting on its corpus. My whole life is just cold, bitter hatred. And I always wanted to die violently. This is the time of vengeance and no life is worth saving. And I will put in the grave as many as I can. It’s time for me to kill. And it’s time for me to die. My genocide crusade begins here.

Hatred is an isometric shooter with a disturbing atmosphere of mass killing, where player takes the role of a cold blood antagonist, who is full of hatred for humanity. It’s a horror, but here YOU are the villain. Wander the outskirts of New York State, seek for victims on seven free-roam levels. Fight against law enforcement and take a journey into the antagonist’s hateful mind. Gather equipment of the dead ‘human shields’, to spread Armageddon in the society. Destroy everything on your way of hunt and fight back when it’s disturbed.

Note the smoking ashtray for extra bonus political incorrectness! Maybe the main character will drop litter as well, or drive an SUV, amirite?

I’m guessing Uwe Boll is already checking to see if the movie rights are available.
