Estonian IT buff launches game to back Pussy Riot

An Estonian graphic designer has taken to cyberspace to protest Russia’s jailing of feminist-punk activists Pussy Riot, launching an anti-Kremlin version of hit video game “Angry Birds”. Magnus Vulp said on Friday that the goal of his “Angry Kremlins” was to draw attention to the fate of the three Russian women, who were sentenced to two years in a corrective labour facility by a Moscow court. Just like players of Angry Birds — the world’s most downloaded mobile app, made in Estonia’s neighbour Finland — those who try the free Angry Kremlins must use slingshots to destroy targets. But while the original involves firing birds at pigs, players of Vulp’s game launch officials at Pussy Riot-style rebels. “The game Angry Kremlins was naturally derived from the news in Russia and the unfair judgement, repression of freedom of speech and the political crisis around Pussy Riot,” Vulp told AFP. “The main purpose is not playing but handling issues — the game Angry Kremlins, in core, is more of a poster or performance than a computer game,” he underlined.

siehe auch: „Angry Kremlins“ für Pussy Riots. Der Entwickler Magnus Vulp will mit dem Spiel „Angry Kremlins“ Solidarität mit den Pussy Riots zeigen. Auch nach dem Moskauer Prozess gegen Pussy Riot ebbt die Protestwelle nicht ab. Jetzt hat ein Entwickler in Estland ein Browsergame dazu ins Netz gestellt, das an den Klassiker „Angry Birds“ angelehnt ist — als kleinen persönlichen Beitrag zur Meinungsfreiheit.
