Kim Jong-un to be immortalized in video game 'Glorious Leader'

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is starring in a cheeky 16-bit-styled shooter called Glorious Leader, in which he fights the American army, rides a flaming unicorn and (naturally) hangs out with Dennis Rodman.


North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be immortalized in the loftiest measure of human achievement: a 16-bit-styled video game. Developer Moneyhorse has released a teaser trailer for "Glorious Leader," an old-school shooter that will feature the ruler single-handedly combating the American army, riding on a flaming unicorns, and hanging out with Dennis Rodman.

The whole thing is firmly tongue-in-cheek just in case you missed it the incredible subtlety. It's due this year for PC and mobile devices.

      Despicable human scum Moneyhorse, who are worse than a dog, have created before you this unbelievable electronic slander as an anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional element that dares to mock our Dearest Leader, in a deranged bid to overthrow the leadership of our party and state and the socialist system.

      Upon hearing the report of the enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, the service personnel and people throughout the country broke into angry shouts that a stern judgment of the revolution be meted out to these thrice-cursed traitors without equals in the world.

      It is clear that the political trust and benevolence shown to Moneyhorse so far by the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu was something they hardly deserved. From long ago, Moneyhorse have had a dirty political ambition. Moneyhorse, the miserable assortment of hooligans and reactionaries, have let the decadent capitalist lifestyle find its way to our society by distributing all sorts of pornographic entertainments among their confidants since 2009. They have led a dissolute, depraved life, squandering money wherever they went.

      The special military tribunal of the Ministry of State Security of the DPRK confirmed that the state subversion attempted by the accused Moneyhorse with an aim to overthrow the people's power of the DPRK by ideologically aligning himself with the fascist clique comprising the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group of traitors, is a crime punishable by Article 60 of the DPRK Criminal Code, condemned them as wicked political tricksters and traitors for all ages in the name of the revolution and the people and ruled that they would be sentenced to death according to it. All the crimes committed by the accused were proved in the course of the hearing and were admitted by them.

      The decision will be immediately executed. The era and history will eternally record and never forget the shuddering crimes committed by Moneyhorse, the enemy of the party, revolution and people and heinous traitor to the nation.

      Our service personnel and people will never pardon all those who dare disobey the unitary leadership of Kim Jong Un, challenge his absolute authority and oppose the lineage of Paektu to an individual but bring them to the stern court of history without fail and mercilessly punish them on behalf of the party and revolution, the country and its people, no matter where they are in hiding, and there will be no place for them to be buried even after their death.

      Our party, state, army and people do not know anyone except Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un. No matter how much water flows under the bridge and no matter how frequently a generation is replaced by new one, the lineage of Paektu will remain unchanged and irreplaceable.
