Cuba releases video game glorifying the murderous exploits of Fidel Castro and Ché Guevara

While Cubans are starving, living in crumbling buildings, and have no access to decent health care, the Castro dictatorship is busy investing its time and resources into creating a video game to glorify the murderous exploits of Fidel Castro and his gang of murderous thugs.

A ‘revolutionary’ new video game from Cuba

You won’t find this game at the annual Game Developers Conference at Moscone Center this week. But here’s a sneak peek at “Gesta Final,” courtesy of the Associated Press:

HAVANA — It’s the latest challenge for computer gamers, in Cuba at least:

Fight your way through mangrove swamps shoulder-to-shoulder with bearded guerrillas clad in the olive green of Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Your mission: Topple 1950s dictator Fulgencio Batista.

Cuban programmers have unveiled a brand new 3-D shoot-’em-up video game that puts a distinctly Cuban twist on gaming, letting players recreate decisive clashes from the 1959 revolution and giving youngsters a taste of the uprising in which many of their grandparents fought.

The government-run Computing Club aims for “Gesta Final” to be the first commercial Cuban-produced game selling in local currency. It’s expected to be released soon.

There are no plans to market it overseas.
