Grand Theft Auto Producer Navid Khonsari To Make “1979 – The Game” Based On Iranian Revolution

Ever needed to play a computer game where Muslims were the good guys – instead of being crudely stereotyped as the terrorist baddies?

Well pretty soon you’ll be able to do just that as the world renowned producer of the Grand Theft Auto series, Navid Khonsari is making a game based around the the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

“Games are really a reflection of the real world and it does not really make a difference what somebody says is good or bad — it is a matter of perspective”

Navid Khonsari spoke to RT about his new project dealing with American-Iranian relations some three decades ago – a new game about the takeover of American embassy in Tehran called “1979: The Game”.

The Akh may break his self imposed video gaming exile for this one, it better be available on Commodore 64.
