What’s with all this controversy with Kingdom Come: Deliverance? Is any of it true?
Kingdom Come: Deliverance has gotten a lot of flak since its launch. First, its team were called liars because the game wasn’t “historically accurate” in their eyes. And now, it’s being called a “propaganda game” because of how little diversity there is within it.
One of the writers of the game, Dav Vavra, spoke out about this during a conference. He was rather blunt about it all:
I wrote ten per cent of the game. Six other people wrote it with me. There’s an anarchist sitting with me in the office, there are liberal guys sitting with me in the office. So it has no propaganda because there are more people with the opposite political views to what I have in the same office. We didn’t kill each other, we’re able to cooperate so it’s ridiculous.
There was an article in a mainstream magazine saying there was a Silk Road going from Olomouc, a Moravian city, to Prague. I hope that everyone who attended elementary school knows that the Silk Road ran from China to Turkey. There are maps on Google that show exactly where it went but we are bad, because we are lying because Silk Roads went to Prague, which is an absolutely ridiculous statement.
