Podcast #45 – Christian Game Development and Sin in Popular Media

Ever have a conversation, and then things go in a completely different direction you didn’t anticipate, but turned into something fascinating regardless? That happened to Zachery Oliver, Matt Eyler, Thomas Henshell, and Michael Jones when we started talking about sin and ended up talking about Christian games and development!

Topics include The Punisher, Game of Thrones, Jesse Schell and the Interest Curve, The Killing, C.S. Lewis, The Legend of Korra, Seven, Mortal Kombat, Magic: The Gathering, how Thomas Henshell almost lost an elder position in his church over Magic: The Gathering, Jack Chick, Bayonetta, Grand Theft Auto V, Christian video games (duh!), Archmage Rises, Left Behind, Kickstarter, Gran Torino, Dynasty Warriors, That Dragon Cancer, Papers Please, The Last of Us, and maybe other things!
