ATLANTA, May 15 (UPI) -- A new video game starring North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will let gamers see what it feels like to hold the whole world in their hands, while playing as the dictator on their mobile devices.

Created by Atlanta-based gaming studio Moneyhorse Games, Glorious Leader is a retro-style game that will also be released for PCs.


While playing as the Glorious Leader, gamers can roam around on unicorns or narwhals, play basketball against Dennis Rodman or set fire to the American flag while battling it out with the United States.


Jeff Miller, the CEO of Moneyhorse Games, told the Guardian the game is an attempt to "carefully walk the line of satire without being an apologist for the regime."


The game should be available by the end of 2014.
