Chinese Video Game Allows Players to ‘Execute’ Supposedly-Corrupt Government Officials

The Sydney Morning Herald:

To advance to a new level, the player must enter an “Anti-Corruption College” to be lectured in more detail about ancient cases, the Southeast Business newspaper said.

Along the way internet vigilantes are rewarded for the capture, torture and killing of not just corrupt officials, but also their sons and daughters.

Next up: a game where you get to torture the guy in the Chinese factory who leaked the news and pictures of the new Apple keyboard.
