Polish developer Destructive Creations has just released a debut trailer for their new game called Hatred. The isometric shooter puts players in the shoes of a sociopath who goes on a murderous rampage because reasons… and because his “whole life is just cold, bitter hatred”. Players will control this scary, 90s goth looking murderer as he guns down innocent civilians and police because the world has to pay for sucking. I dunno. It’s all very contrived and pretty much just a reason for making a game festooned with gratuitous violence and shock tactics.
The game hasn’t even existed in the public zeitgeist for more than 24 hours, but it’s already received a fair bit of criticism. For example: the game is built on Unreal Engine 4, and Epic Games has since purposefully distanced itself from Destructive Creations’ game.
