Video Game About Logan Paul Finding a Corpse Was Removed from the X-Box Marketplace

The game is called "The Suicide Forest," and in it, you play Logan Paul and have to find corpses to film. Is it tasteless or just the right kind of satire?

  • There was a time not that long ago when video games were renowned for their gleeful and continuous crossing of boundaries. Doom put you behind the crosshairs of a gun back when that was considered taboo, Grand Theft Auto dragged the nation into a conversation about video game ratings, and an independent video game about Columbine grabbed headlines for its alleged tastelessness rather than its attempt to discuss a difficult issue in a new genre. The same kind of thinking has apparently proved to be too much for the X-Box Marketplace, as the game publisher is removing an independent game based around Logan Paul’s now infamous trip to Japan’s suicide forest.

    The video game, titled The Suicide Forest, is minimalistic — with parts of the backgrounds not rendered — as you play Logan Paul running through the Aokigahara Woods in Japan as he is flanked by a camera person. In the corner lies the directive — “find a corpse to film." Throughout the game, you might be eaten alive by wolves, but when you find the corpse, Logan Paul obnoxiously dances next to it as his subscriber count rises.

    The video game’s creator goes by Simo Mediator who stated — “The main idea of my game was to show in a sarcastic way the reason Logan Paul went to the suicide forest — The real reason [was] to get views, [and this] was intended to be sort of a meme game.” X-Box has removed the game from their marketplace, stating: “This content violates our Store policies and we’re in the process of removing it."

    Interestingly enough, it’s not even the only Logan Paul game out there right now. A game called “Logan Paul’s Suicide Forest Run” has been removed from the Google Store.
