Reviews

“Satire is finally an effective means of countering the ubiquitous Russian information warriors. The Russian troll will be defeated at its own game. This is nothing new: Charlie Chaplin made fun of Adolf Hitler in a film back in 1940, when the world war was raging. Today, "The Great Dictator" is considered a masterpiece”
Der Standard

“This is a controversial game that brings politics in games together in an uncomfortable way, and Lesser makes no apologies for that.”
VentureBeat

“I can't help but feel that the developer's message is that humane treatment of the enemy and peaceful resistance are more important than fighting”
Gamespark
