WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO

A CONTROVERSIAL video game simulating a killing spree has come after under fire for its extremely graphic content.

The game called “Hatred” holds the dubious distinction of being the second only game to receive an adults only rating for extreme violence.

This is not surprising considering the aim of the game is to massacre as many people as possible in a ‘genocide crusade’.

Making matters worse, the game’s main character is a psychopathic Goth dressed in a long black trench coat — all too similar to the same outfit worn by the Columbine killers.

In a bold move, the game’s developers have been outspoken on their website about the rating.

“Well, I’m not quite convinced why Hatred got AO rating while it lacks any sexual content,” they wrote.

“It’s still some kind of achievement to have the second game in history getting AO rating for violence and harsh language only.”

Fuelling the hype surrounding the game, creators have released a trailer showing footage of the main character walking the streets with a collection of weapons before performing a series of gruesome executions on innocent civilians.

In the cut scene leading the trailer, the character can be heard expressing his disgust with the world.

“’I just hate this world and the human worms feasting on its carcass,” the character said.

“My whole life is just cold, bitter hatred, and I always wanted to die violently. This the time for vengeance and no life is worth saving — and I will put in a grave as many as I can.”

The game was originally listed on digital game shop Steam, but was removed after the website deemed it too graphic for sale.

The website have since reinstated the controversial game much to the delight of Destructive Creations business developer Przemysław Szczepaniak who described the win as a “victory for creativity or freedom of speech”.

While there is no set release date, the game is expected to come out mid-2015.
