Putin Honored In New Online Video Game

According to our friends at Ria Novosti, Russia Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is now an online video game. It’s called “Like Putin“, and like most good things, it’s in 2D.

The goal of the game is to boost Russia’s VVP (GDP). To do this, Putin must collect hearts, bonuses and metals, kind of like real life.

Alexei Kabokov, head of Agency One, the company that made the video game, told Ria Novosti:

“We were afraid that the reaction would be bad, but it seems to me that we made an enjoyable game. We were thinking about a striking move to promote our agency… And Vladimir Putin immediately came to our minds.”
