If you live in North Korea I wouldn't recommend letting the players smash your homeland. Other than that you're probably reasonably safe, though there might be similar concerns at a few other places in the world.

It depends on your own country's laws. Your country might have laws against that sort of thing.

you cleared my big doubt


Seriously? You're going to proceed on the word of some stranger on the internet?
Look, you might not go to jail for making that game, but that doesn't mean there can't still be serious legal consequences.
