Exkee and Ynnis Interactive has put up a Kickstarter page for their murder simulator game, “Kill the Bad Guy”. The premise is simple: set up lethal traps without your victims noticing and then kill them in the bloodiest, most spectacular manner you can think of. Oh but don’t worry about moral issues and legality of it all: the murders are sanctioned by the government and the victims, they assured us, are all bad guys.
You know, just like how the government convinced us that we TOTALLY didn’t go to war with Iraq for the oil.
While I dig the presentation of low key, black-and-white, Mad World-esque world that emphasizes the red blood splatters when the carnage happens, I don’t know if this is enough to pique my interest to fund it especially since another triple-A game to satisfy your torture porn tendencies is already right around the corner for release. Plus, they got boobies in that one.
All in all, it comes to a matter of taste. If you’re into blood splatters, then you would want to fund Kill the Bad Guy. Me? I’d rather humiliate my victims by strapping them to an S&M wooden horse, and THEN brutally kill them.
