Matveyev “” who prefers to be called Shamil “” described the game during the broadcast.
“This is a computer game about the Chechen jihad. The player has several challenges, including liberating Ichkeria and destroying aggressive Russian enemies.”
The game features 11 Russian military bases, and even a concentration camp set up by the FSB. The game is not complete, and Matveyev said he would like Chechens to join his effort. Matveyev does not intend to market his game, however, saying it is not for profit.
