In the video game trailer, Rittenhouse introduces himself via voiceover as “the guy who recently acquitted of all charges in the Kenosha self-defense case”.

“From the start, I did nothing wrong,” Rittenhouse continues. “But that didn’t stop the media from smearing my name. It’s time to fight the fake news machine.

To help fund this alleged fight, Rittenhouse created Turkey shoot in partnership with Mint Studios. According to the studio’s YouTube account (which only posted one YouTube video, the Turkey shoot trailer), it’s a “global game studio” that “partners with the biggest influencers in the public arena to create groundbreaking games for all to enjoy”.

In the point-and-shoot video game, users embody what is presumed to be an avatar of Rittenhouse, who shoots animated turkeys labeled “fake news” and “MSDNC.”

The game is currently available for pre-order at US$9.99. There is no specific release date on the game’s official website.

Lawyers representing Rittenhouse have previously said they intend to file “at least 10” defamation lawsuits against companies and individuals, including Meta Platforms’ Mark Zuckerberg. Rittenhouse’s legal team said they would target those who branded their client a “murderer”.

In 2021, Rittenhouse was acquitted of five counts, including homicide, in connection with the shooting deaths of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, claimed to have killed the two men (and injured another) in self-defense during a protest in Kenosha following the shooting of a black man , Jacob Blake, by a white policeman.
