Iranian-American Creates a Truly Revolutionary Video Game

The maker of Grand Theft Auto has turned his talents to a seminal event from his own past: the 1979 Iranian revolution.

Iranian-American video game creator Navid Khonsari is no stranger to controversy. His previous projects, including “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” and “Max Payne,” sparked uproar and even a 2011 U.S. Supreme Court ruling over how much gory, unadulterated violence should be allowed in children’s games.
