Hackers stop North Korea video game fundraising campaign

Developers said Christmas Eve website outage unlikely related to N. Korea

Hackers have stopped a fundraising campaign for a video game which allows users to play as Kim Jong Un, a statement published by U.S. developers MoneyHorse said late last week.

The video game – Glorious Leader! – had attracted widespread media attention since being announced in May last year, but won't be published any time soon due to the recent hacks.
