Report: Iranian Man Arrested by Government for ‘Kill Dictators’ Game on Kongregate

While we have no way to confirm it, one of our readers claims that a man whose game recently launched on Kongregate (owned by GameStop) has been arrested by the Iranian government and jailed. The game he was supposedly jailed for is "Kill Dictators," and as the title suggest, players are charged with killing various leaders inside and outside Iran including Bashar, Erdogan, Amhadi Nejad, Khameni, Nasrallah, and Putin.

The crudely drawn game at its heart is a hidden object adventure game, drenched in commentary about political and social justice, and the crimes these men have committed against their own people…

If the creator of this game, known only by his username "AlirezaY" on Kongregate, was actually arrested in Iran for making this game, he could face anything from life in prison to a death sentence.

We'll have more on this story as it develops, but you can check out the game released only a few hours ago, at Kongregate.
