Recently, a transgender game developer released a PC game called Terfenstein 3D on Steam, in which players can hunt down and kill transphobes, such as anti-trans feminists and even Catholic priests, in gory first-person shooter action.
Video game that is based on the classic game against the Nazis Wolfenstein 3D and that seeks to equate the villains of the game with the Nazis of the classic, allowing the player the experience of tearing them apart on the screen. The developer of this game is Sandra Moen, a trans developer who has stated that the game is intended to “draw a comparison between gender critics and Nazi Germany.”

The game’s description provided by Moen states that it offers “LGBTQAI+, transgender, and feminist themes of gender critics and what a post-war apocalyptic world would look like if gender fascists won.” In this dystopian world, fascists have killed and imprisoned all transgender and queer people, subjecting them to harsh conversion therapy, imprisonment, and death. The player plays a fugitive who escapes from his detention center and seeks revenge against the TERFs and other critics of trans ideology who have taken control of society and turned it into a fascist dystopia.
Moen claims that developing the game has helped him improve his own process as a trans individual and that the title “brings to light the very real transphobic violence that many transgender people face for simply existing.” Game that, as expected, has generated great controversy and has been criticized for its violent content and its representation of Catholic priests. Additionally, some have questioned the decision to equate critics of transgenderism with Nazis and the lack of sensitivity towards those who have suffered similar trauma.
