I know that headline sounds completely insane but it’s true. Atlanta-based video game developers Moneyhorse Games are going to release a 16-bit sidescrolling game starring none other than Kim Jong Un.

Glorious Leader!” will have players controlling the North Korean dictator as he battles the “imperialist capitalist pigs.” In the trailer, you can see him battling his foes while riding unicorns and rappelling down ziplines. While this game could easily be dubbed offensive, Moneyhorse Games’ CEO Jeff Miller says that the company will “carefully walk the line of satire without being an apologist for the regime.”

Glorious Leader! will be released later this year onPC and mobile devices.
