Hackers wreck a game making fun of North Korea’s leader
Clearly, hackers who sympathize with North Korea don’t have a great sense of humor. Weeks after Sony briefly cancelled The Interview, Moneyhorse Games has frozen work on its Kim Jong-un parody shooter Glorious Leader.
The studio says that hackers destroyed game data and locked the company out of its computers, making it tough to both continue work on the dictator-inspired side-scroller and maintain a crowdfunding drive for the title. The funding goals weren’t likely to be met as-is, for that matter.
