Slabovia, the last communist dictatorship in Europe, has revealed that its debut video game, GUTS, has outsold Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2– in Slabovia. The news follows a nationwide downgrading of all PCs capable of playing modern games to 1992 specifications in order to address environmental impact concerns. Previously, General Schmerdiakov had banned all video game consoles from Slabovia unless they were filled with mashed potato, to the point where media could not be physically inserted, in order to meet“state-mandated safety requirements”. This leaves only iPhone and iPod Touch machines as the formats of choice for Slabovian gamers.
General Schmerdiakov commented:“Today, we have shown the West that their jingoistic warfare simulations are no match for our glorious game designs. GUTS, the magnificent re-telling of the miraculous medical operation that saved my life, reigns supreme as the highest-selling game of all time in our wonderful nation. This is completely in line with our expectations and is a testament to our brothers at Tag Games and the sonic mastery of Si Begg’s soundtrack but also myself, as the game is principally about me. But we cannot rest, Slabovian citizens. I know many of you have not yet purchased GUTS, so listen closely– buy this game. Enjoy this game. Or be punished. That is all.”
GUTS is available from the App Store now, priced at£1.79

Slabovia.tv is an online representation of the Slabovian State Communications Network and its various media output. General Schmerdiakov launched slabovia.tv on 7 March 2008 to celebrate 60 years of "glorious repression" in Slabovia. He believes it is "an opportunity" for the world to look upon his leadership as an example, and for it to see how great The People's Republic is.
The Slabovian State Communications Network is notoriously fickle, particularly in its broadcasting departments, and does not tolerate programming content that it deems non-Slabovian or does not meet with the General's approval.
Due to the high expectations of all televisual output, no TV commissioner in Slabovia has survived in the role for more than six months. If you have any complaints about the current service please Contact Us.
It has been suggested that Slabovia.tv has business ties with independent Scottish Television Production company, Tern TV, and the mighty British broadcaster Channel 4. We vehemently deny any such association.
