In the game, which was developed by Michele Rocco Smeets, a vidgame creator from Belgium, a gang of the living dead, led by Russian mystic Rasputin, attack a press conference attended by Putin, who then springs into action, slaying zombies alongside his sidekick, an alcoholic American called Mike.
“Putin has this tough guy image and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty,” Smeets told the RIA Novosti news agency. “He hunts, he rides, he shoots. A leader should be strong, and in my opinion Putin is the only world leader who really fulfills this image.”
The game’s dialogue is full of one-liners based on things the Russian president has said in real life, Smeets said.
“You Don’t Mess With Putin,” which will be free, will be available around Oct. 31 on iOS and Android.
