Nasty new game 'Rape Day' allows players to brutally assault and kill women, 'smash infants to a pulp'
The controversial game 'Rape Day' is based on 'violence, sexual assault, necrophilia, and incest' and allows players to 'annoy, murder and rape women'
A brand new videogame that is based on "violence, sexual assault, necrophilia, and incest" and lets players rape and kill women as they proceed is set to release this month despite facing severe backlash.
However, the developer of the controversial PC game 'Rape Day' has claimed that the game's target base is the "four percent of the general population [who] are sociopaths" who they believe would enjoy playing a "menacing serial killer rapist during a zombie apocalypse," Daily Mail reports.
Bragging about the twisted storyline on popular gaming platform Steam, Desk Plant, who single-handedly developed the game, wrote, "nnoy, murder and rape women as you continue the story. It's a dangerous world withA no laws. The zombies enjoy eating the flesh off warm humans and brutally raping them, but you are the most dangerous rapist in town."
One disturbing scene from the game as uploaded on Twitter shows the protagonist forcing a pistol into a young woman's mouth with the subtitles: "I could blow your brains out and f*** your tight little p**** right here." While another screenshot showed a zombie drowning a baby before "mashing it into pulp."
Following the game's initial release on February 19, Steam was inundated with a barrage of complaints, forcing them to put the game under review.
The game, which is currently unavailable for download owing to the ongoing investigation, is a "visual novel" — a genre which changes the plot based on players' decisions. While Steam is known to ban games that are illegal or contain intentional "trolling," it is yet to be established if 'Rape Day' violates its rules. That said, Steam has already removed a scene which involves an infant being murdered.
Also, the title of the game along with its a brazen description has spurred several questions as to how Steam allowed it on their platform in the first place. Developer guidelines on the website mention a "brief review process" for every game before it can go live. However, it is not certain if game content is reviewed as part of that procedure.
In a FAQ answer, the developer wrote: "If people want my game to not exist... their best offense, in my opinion, would be to not talk about me, and not give me free press. If both my game is banned and I am banned, then I will ensure that a content platform for all kinds of legal, quality porn games exist."
