The game offers three main features, according to its website:
FAKE NEWS TURKEYS: Shoot the Fake News turkeys that attack Kyle to get the highest score, compete with friends and unlock new levels!
BECOME KYLE: Play as Kyle Rittenhouse to destroy fake news turkeys in a simple point n’ shoot game for all ages to enjoy!
HELP RAISE FUNDS: Kyle Rittenhouse is raising funds to sue the leftwing media organizations for defamation and now you can help.
"Hi, I’m Kyle Rittenhouse. You might know me as the guy who was recently acquitted from all charges in the Kenosha self-defense case,” says Rittenhouse in a promotional video (embedded below). “From the very beginning, I did nothing wrong. But that didn’t stop the media from smearing my name. It’s time to fight back against the fake news machine. This is why I’m launching The Kyle Rittenhouse Fake News Turkey Shoot video game.”
The video shows images of slanderous media coverage, then cuts to a scene from the game in which a Rittenhouse avatar blasts fake news turkeys. Kyle returns, saying, “The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than push their lying agenda and destroy innocent people’s lives. So go to RittenhouseGame.com and preorder the game now and help me fund the lawsuits to stop these fake news turkeys!” Rittenhouse poses with a Nerf gun before the video cuts back to a scene from the game, in which his avatar wields a similar arm.
Proceeds from game sales will fund The Media Accountability Project (TMAP). “TMAP will serve as the official fundraising vehicle for holding the worst offenders in our activist media accountable in court for their malicious and defamatory lies and propaganda,” explains Rittenhouse in a fundraising email.

Not even a chance of a victory, let alone one that big.
DO NOT DONATE a DIME! Rittenhouse has played this stupidly from day one. Sandmann the opposite. Hire GOOD lawyers and then shut up while they make rain for you. And boy did Hyle’s attorneys make it pour. They work on % so no “fundraising” is needed IF the case and client are solid.

Really? KR’s attorney’s aren’t doing contingencies on all the lawsuits? Hmmm. Wonder who is advising him? SMH.
I actually thought Sandmann’s attorney was on his case.
Why is that?
Yeah, that’s what I thought when I saw he has to raise money for attorneys.
No chance of victory? Check with Nick Sandmann on that one.
It’s not an easy case. He became a public figure the day he got charged.
Hopefully not Lin Wood.
ConInc took him over.
Not a chance. Kyle is through with Lin Wood.
Sandmann’s case was nothing like Rittenhouse’s.
Sandmann literally did nothing but stand still and smile while an activist drummed in his face. And the media went wild with smears. It was the actions of others that made him a public figure.
Rittenhouse shot 3 people, killing 2 of them in self defense. But it was his own actions that made him a public figure.
It’s a lot harder case to argue.
Another difference is that Sandmann became a “public figure” almost solely because of the slander ginned up by CNN, the Washington Post, and others. This made it possible for his lawyers to argue, successfully, that they weren’t shielded by the “public figure” standard of the infamous New York Times vs Sullivan ruling.
It’s the same for the bakery that successfully sued Oberlin college. Gibson’s bakery never would have made waves beyond it’s own neighborhood if Oberlin College hadn’t turned itself into an echo chamber of crackpot race-baiting accusations.
The public figure standard will be FAR more difficult for Kyle Rittenhouse to meet. For one thing, his criminal trial was itself a widely covered public event. Kyle Rittenhouse himself has granted televised interviews. It’s going to very difficult for him to clear the NYT vs Sullivan “public figure” hurdle.
Why does he need funds? I would think his lawyer would be salivating to work pro bono and just take a cut of the settlements
Oh wait, I see what he is doing....duh, I gotta remember to read the whole article. He wants money for his media accountability project
I think not.
