Kick American imperialism butt as Kim Jong Un in this ridiculous retro game

Is this real life, or is this just fantasy?

If you’ve always wanted to be Kim Jong Un, Atlanta-based Moneyhorse’s new game allows you that honour - sort of.

In Glorious Leader! (yes, that exclamation point is mandatory), you play the Great Successor in an epic battle of one man vs entire American armies. It might sound like an uphill task but hey, if you were born to a man whose own birth caused the seasons to change, it’s inevitable you inherit some of those supernatural powers and the heavens are obviously on your side.

In this throwback run-and-gun game, race through seven levels of is-this-really-Pyongyang, riding unicorns and narwhals while single-handedly taking out multiple American paratroopers along the way. Just another day in the life (or rather, mind) of the Supreme Leader of North Korea.

Also, look out for the Dennis Rodman cameo.

More after the break...

We can’t decide if this is a joke, since everything North Korea-related seems to border on fantasy (not ours), but it looks set to be a hoot, albeit a short game. It's expected to hit PCs and mobile devices end of the year and you can watch the video below for a better idea of the mindtrip that awaits.
