Navid Khonsari, the former cinematic director at Rockstar is making a game about the Iranian Revolution. Right now it is only in development for iOS but if the game gets more funding they have hinted it may come for other platforms.
Hopefully this game gets its funding as it seems like a really cool concept.
Hotline Miami 2's rape scene was "and then you get to choose, do you rape her or not, but if you decide to do it the director yells cut and it turns out you were acting in a movie", still pretty fucked up and not fitting in a game like that.
How do you know the people who found this offensive were white?
EDIT: Just looked it up. Oliver Campbell (the man who wrote to the developer) is black. You should be more careful about the assumptions you make.
