President-elect Jair Bolsonaro had a game made based on him from BS Studios called Bolsomito. In the game players take on the role of the President-elect of Brazil as he beats up thugs, hooligans, troublemakers, and traitors, all in an attempt to fight against rampant corruption and make Brazil great again.
Quite naturally, Leftists, NPCs, and Social Justice Warriors are triggered, calling the game and Bolsanaro “racist”, “extremist”, and “misogynistic”, all because in real life Bolsonaro wants to focus on making the country great by moving away from the degenerate policies that have kept the country in poverty and crime for so many years; and as we all know Leftists hate progress, independence, freedom, and Western values.
BS Studios’ title sees players going around the mean streets of Brazil to beat down the low-life scum and clean up the refuse from the sunny streets of crime-infested nation. The launch trailer for the game is a satirical parody of Brazil’s current political landscape, which is portrayed as having been taken over by demonic forces, with the game’s protagonist, Bolsomito, leading a charge against the demonic corruption.
The game has moved thousands of copies since its launch on October 5th, 2018, according to Steam Spy.
The launch of the game was met with a lot of resistance, even from within Brazil, as reported by GamesIndustry.biz. The article notes that the Brazilian Public Ministry of the Federal District and Territories launched an investigation into Valve and BS Studios for the title, with a segment of the report stating…
“On tense days with an election extremely polarised in progress, a game developer has created a game that promises controversy. In the animation, the player places himself in the skin of the PSL to the Presidency of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, and earn[s] points by killing militants, gays, feminists and members of landless movements.”
The game has a variety of enemies in it, but the media put the spin on it that it was “racist” and “misogynistic” to fit their narrative.
Social Justice Warrior dens such as ResetEra actually attempted to convince the community to report the game for no other reason that that they don’t like Bolsonaro and want the people of Brazil to continue to live in squalor. The reason for this is that Communists hate prosperity, especially when minorities are given opportunities of prosperity, as evident with ResetEra’s hatred for any attempts for Bolsonaro to raise Brazil out of the trenches of poverty.
Any user who didn’t toe the line by denouncing Bolsonaro was permanently banned from ResetEra, and anyone who didn’t condemn him for trying to help people of color were also banned, as was evident with what happened with the user Black Materia.
Places like Kotaku waxed their typical lyrics for the Social Justice crowd; a crowd who cares more about virtue signaling than gaming.
The outlet fulminated the rhetoric and and policies of Bolsonaro, just like they do regularly when discussing President Donald Trump, writing…
“Jair Bolsonaro is a Brazilian politician who’s promised to crack down on widespread corruption, but who’s also made a slew of racist, sexist, and homophobic statements and been known to wax nostalgic about the country’s 1964-1985 military dictatorship. Running the same playbook as Donald Trump (and so many other leaders who somehow expect to all be first in a time of increasing uncertainty and destabilization) by promising change through strongman tactics and Brazil-first-isms, Bolsonaro even recently repurposed everybody’s favorite catchphrase by saying, “Let’s make Brazil great! Let’s be proud of our homeland once again!”
Other outlets shared similar sentiments, attacking Bolsomito while decrying the real life Bolsonaro as some kind of dictator and bigot.
Segment Next also joined the list, calling for Valve to retroactively remove their policy on allowing all sorts of games on the platform, writing…
“One game can’t do much to harm anything but Valve has previously been criticized for letting hateful groups set up camp at Steam. This doesn’t look good on Valve and its free for all standard for video game publishing on Steam needs to change.”
Bolsomito is available on the Steam store for just $4.99. If you want to clean up the mean streets of Brazil and bring back peace, prosperity, and goodness to the heart of the Carnaval nation, you can do so right now.
