Form many years we have seen many games with each telling their own stories. Most of the games are about revenge, love, justice, soldier or a Secret spy. But, we didn’t get a game where we could kill many peoples without any reason, but hatred (Well, we do can kill people without any reason in Open-world games like Grand theft auto but that’s different, also not every open-world game give us the opportunity to kill people without any reason, take Assassin’s Creed for example).
Recently, Polish developer Destructive Creations announced a game just like that, The game name is hatred. Just like the name of the game we will get the freedom to kill many innocent men without any reason but because of hatred. The playable character is full of hate. Destructive Creations CEO Jarosław Zieliński don’t care about it upsetting the players.
“The world’s response to our trailer I can describe only by using OMFG words,” Zieliński said in an e-mail exchange with Eurogamer. “I knew it would do some mess around because of the game’s theme, but what is happening is beyond our imagination. I’m constantly writing right now a s***load of responses for fan mails. Yes, fans! We receive a ton of supportive emails and it totally blows me away, [I] didn’t expect this. And to all of those people: We won’t disappoint you!”
When asked if he was second-guessing that the content had crossed a line, he responded, “No, I don’t think the content has gone too far. It’s just shooting virtual characters and if anybody has a problem with distinguishing reality from a game, he should turn off his computer and go for a long walk. 🙂 We do what you can find in so many titles, we just don’t want to justify it. If someone doesn’t like the game and feels disgusted with its content, he doesn’t have to play it – plain and simple. It’s definitely not a game for everyone.”
Even Epic is disturbed by this game, which requested Destructive Creators to remove the Unreal 4 logo from the its trailer.
“Epic Games aren’t involved in this project,” the developer said in a statement to Eurogamer. “Unreal Engine 4 is available to the general public for use ‘for any lawful purpose,’ and we explicitly don’t exert any sort of creative control or censorship over projects. However, the video is using the trademarked Unreal Engine 4 logo without permission from Epic, and we’ve asked for the removal of our logo from all marketing associated with this product.”
“They have all their rights to do it. They’ve contacted me in a friendly tone, I removed it from YouTube, will remove from the press version of our trailer ASAP and everyone is happy. It was actually my lack of knowledge – in the past I was working on the titles (and trailers) with another type of Unreal license than the present EULA one. It was obvious to me that you put Unreal logo at the beginning of the video, for advertising its greatness and it’s quite mandatory.
The developer also explained the origin of hatred,
“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, [we] 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.”
“Here comes our game, which takes no prisoners and makes no excuses,” it added on its official site. “We say ‘yes, it is a game about killing people’ and the only reason of the antagonist doing that sick stuff is his deep-rooted hatred. Player has to ask himself what can push any human being to mass-murder. We provoke this question using new Unreal Engine 4, pushing its physics (or rather PhysX) systems to the limits and trying to make the visuals as good as possible.”
So what do you guys think about this game?
