Hey! James here. You found me. Don’t tell the others.
What’s all this then?
Yeah so look I have two very specific interests and I’m not maintaining two websites.
I studied literature at university, and I play a bunch of games, and now I’m here talking about how game narratives are constructed.
I grew up in a Christian home, and now I’m on a quest to learn as much as possible about different denominations and traditions. The focus here is on curiosity and cultural understanding – everything’s accessible regardless of your faith or beliefs.
At the same time?
No: video games on Wednesday, religion on Sunday. Just like God intended.
Do you make your own games?
Yeah, sort of. I have a project over at Death is a Whale on itch.io – visual novels, interactive fiction, so on. Mostly five-minute pieces. They often draw on religious material or ideas, so it’s sort of like a retroactive justification for the stuff I’m doing here.
