The CEO of the studio developing isometric mass murder sim Hatred has called claims he is a neo-Nazi "fucking ridiculous".

On Friday, several sites reported that Destructive Creations CEO Jarosław Zieliński is a Facebook fan of the Polska Liga Obrony (Polish Defence League), an Islamophobic, anti-immigration, nationalist group in Poland.

FX artist Marcin Kaźmierczak was also found to be a supporter of the Młodzież Wszechpolska (All-Polish Youth), another right-wing nationalist group.

Today, Zielinski told Polygon that liking a group on Facebook was not an endorsement of its activities.

"I've liked this page, because it's source of an information what is going on right now in the middle-east and Europe (and a lot of evil shit is going on — those are REAL problems, not our game),” he said.

“Some things media would not show, nor tell. So: no, I'm not any kind of 'supporter.'

"I don't watch TV, I don't have time to follow all the news. If there's some evil shit is going on in Europe or Middle East, I get the message on my wall,” he added.

“That's simply the only reason I've 'liked' this page. And I don't see how giving a 'like' is threaten as supporting something. (sic)"

Zielinski was adamant he is not personally affiliated with Polska Liga Obrony.

"They don't even know I exist," he said, adding that as far as he was aware, the Polish Defense League was just a Facebook page and not an actual organisation.

A photo of the development team on the game's website shows another team member wearing a shirt depicting Żołnierze wyklęci (Cursed soldiers), a historical anti-communist paramilitary group.

Zielinski told GamePolitics this is equally innocuous.

"Żołnierze Wyklęci were an underground polish army, who were fighting Nazis and after the fall of [the] Third Reich, they were treating communists who came to Poland as the same kind of enemy that Nazis were,” he said.

Neo-Nazi claims "fucking ridiculous" – Hatred CEO

“They were fighting with those new occupants after the war is over. They were never associated with Freikorps, it's bullshit and I don't know where from people get their historical informations. Żołnierze Wyklęci are considered a national heroes of Poland, but their memory is obviously a pain in the ass for all commie-lovers and their supporters, so they try to defame all those who remember.

“TL;DR - if someone considers people who were fighting Nazis and another totalitarian regime as Nazis themselves, are really fucking stupid."

The claims were propaganda spread by people who didn’t like the look of Hatred, said Zielinski.

“Do not believe them, they feed on naivety,” he said.

“We are group of nice, normal guys, you don't have to be some sick bastard to make a game like this."

Zielinski also posted a statement on his Facebook page about the accusations, claiming that most of the feedback about the game had been positive, and that he cares more about goings-on in the real world than those in the Internet.
