Godcast; Part 1

Hey everyone,

Jackson and Daniel are back with another episode of Player’s Guide. This week they are talking about gods in fiction – especially fantasy. There are not many features of the genre that blur the line between whole-cloth creation and adapted myth to the same degree as deities. And with religion and faith being alive and well in the real world, playing with the idea of gods is a great way to create vivid and incisive commentary.

In addition to diving into this rather meaty (so much meat that there will be a second part) topic, your hosts also bust out the recommendations:

This week you should read The Inheritance Trilogy by NK Jemisin 

This week you should play Nier: Automata and the other games created and influenced by Yoko Taro
