'Christian' developer creates video game in which players can violently kill lgbts

Editor's note - I apologize for the video, but it has to been seen:

From GayStarNews:

Online gaming website Steam have removed a controversial video game from availability after complaints were made about it’s violent homophobic and transphobic content by users. ‘Kill The Faggot’ was created and uploaded by Skaldic Games to Steam’s Steam Greenlight section which allows game developers to showcase their games and let the Steam user community decide which ones they want to be made commercially available through Steam. Steam does not actively vet games for offensive content but developers must pay $100 to get their game onto Steam Greenlight as a quality control barrier. The game description for ‘Kill The Faggot’ read ‘Hate gays? Want to unleash your frustration with the “LGBT” community? Well now is your chance.’ ‘Murder gays and transgenders [sic] while avoiding killing straight people. Get points before time runs out.’

And it gets worse. According to Raw Story:

The man behind the game, Randall Herman, is a California developer, according to Ars Technica.
Herman is also a skateboarder and Christian shoe promoter. He launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 on behalf of a skateboarding shoe company “with one goal in mind: to promote the words and teachings of Jesus Christ through quality footwear,” according to Ars Technica.

Herman is claiming that the game was meant to challenge the overly political correctness in the gaming industry by making “most overly offensive game possible to these idiots to prove a point,” and was not intended to incite hatred or violence towards LGBT people.

“To everyone that got overly offended. Good, that’s what we were going for. Just wait for our next game we are working on, its gonna be way more offensive as this one [sic].”

Now about this @^&! I keep hearing about gays being "bullies" . . . .

Personally, I'm almost a bit disappointed that Steam removed it from their library... since I'm almost positive that, beyond the blatantly obvious shock-value of the concept, the game itself was probably absolutely terrible.

Ah well. Wonder how well all this wonderful 'shock-value' will be worth when he likely has issues finding sponsorship for his projects. Heh.
